Rebels break through

The hard work finally paid off.

The Thorsby volleyball team on Tuesday won its first match against a county foe in coach Ginger Williams’ four-year tenure when it downed Chilton County High, 24-26, 25-23, 15-4.

Both the Rebels (3-1) and the Tigers (0-4) lost in straight games to Montevallo earlier in the tri-match.

“We didn’t miss serves; that makes a difference,” Thorsby coach Ginger Williams said about the decisive Game 3 against CCHS. “They were still upset about losing to Montevallo, which is good, but they were definitely excited about beating Clanton.”
