The White House High Blue Devils volleyball team recently completed a very busy week two of the volleyball season with matches versus Cheatham County, Springfield and Pope John Paul II on consecutive days.

The Blue Devils faced a very talented Cheatham County Cubs volleyball team to start off their week. Despite putting together some very solid rallies and hanging tough versus the Cubs, the Blue Devils lost the first two sets of the home matchup.

White House decided to try a younger lineup in the third set in hopes of solving the Cheatham County riddle but could not get the upper hand with the quality squad from Ashland City in falling three sets to zero.

Looking to rebound from the tough loss versus Cheatham County, the Blue Devils traveled to local rival Springfield for a rare Wednesday afternoon matchup.

The Blue Devils again quickly fell into another 0-2 hole versus the Yellow Jackets and faced a second sweep in consecutive days. Never giving up and continuing to push the Yellow Jackets, White House was able to send the match into a fourth set after winning set three.

However, the momentum was short-lived as the Yellow Jackets took early control of the match and sent the Blue Devils to another hard fought loss.

Ending the week with a Thursday afternoon home matchup with Pope John Paul II, the Blue Devils were looking to turn the tides of a tough week with a win over the Knights.

The Blue Devils struggled early in the first set dropping several early points versus a good Pope John Paul II team. Despite coming back in the match and getting back in the match, the Blue Devils could not finish the set, falling to the Knights.

White House continued to fight the Knights and improve as a team but were unable to handle the superior size and strength of Pope John Paul II in falling three sets to zero to end the week.

Taking virtually no time to rest, the Blue Devils host district rival Greenbrier on Wednesday, followed by a trip to Sycamore on Thursday and a trip to Clarksville to participate in the West Creek tournament on Saturday.
