Two postponements on back-to-back nights forced Columbia’s road matchup with Tylertown to be played Sunday afternoon, but the Wildcats didn’t let it affect them in their district opener and dominated the Chiefs in a 46-0 blowout victory.
Although the Columbia Academy Cougars have actually only been victorious once this season and have lost four straight after their 35-20 loss Friday at Lamar School, they are only one win away from securing a first-round bye in the playoffs and have already qualified for the postseason.
There’s only one week left in the season, but the West Marion Trojans are playing their best volleyball of the year.
The Trojans (11-12, 7-4) have continued to play dominant volleyball since beating Seminary Sept. 23, which head coach Todd Pittman said was the best they’ve played all year, and have now won four straight.
Columbia Academy’s homecoming didn’t go as the Cougars hoped with Presbyterian Christian scoring early and often Friday night in a 41-22 defeat of the home squad.
The Cougars (1-5) were shorthanded to begin with going into the game, and it only got worse.
