Volleyball: Caps Squeeze Past Leesville Road to Move into 3rd Round

The Caps (18-0) downed Leesville Road 25-20, 22-25, 16-25, 25-22, 15-13 in Tuesday's NCHSAA 4A 2nd round playoff game.  Broughton fought back from a 2-sets-to-1 deficit to advance to Thursday's 3rd round tilt against D.H. Conley. The Caps were down 18-14 in the fourth set before outscoring the Pride 9-4 to force a fifth frame. The deciding set was tied 13-13 before Broughton scored the night's final two points to close the match.  The Pride (13-7) called timeout down 14-13 but Tiana Butler hit a clutch serve and a kill by Katja Ehlers sealed the win.
