Thorsby this season advanced to the sub-state round of the volleyball playoffs for the first time in program history, and, on Thursday, the Rebels played like it.

Thorsby fell at Leroy, 3-0 (25-15, 25-17, 25-20).

“We played nervous, being our first time there,” coach Ginger Williams said. “We’re extremely proud of them, anyway. This team has really done a lot.”

Thorsby was put on the defensive most of the night, so there were plenty of digs to be had. Brittany Maddox had 12, Desiree Evans had 10 and Holly Smith had 8.

Maddox also had four kills.

The Rebels finished the season with a 20-20 record.
