The Middlesex High School Lady Chargers varsity volleyball team improved to 16-2 going into the final two games of the regular season.

The Lady Chargers got a forfeit win against King and Queen last week, and on October 16 Middlesex defeated Northampton in three games 25-11, 25-21and 25-19. “They (Northampton) were a slow pace team,” said Lady Charger coach Brian Walton. “It’s hard to play that type of team, but the girls created their own pace of play.”

Just two games are left in the regular season—both are on the road. “The pace of play will pick up tremendously against West Point on Thursday (October 18) and then even more at Mathews one Monday (October 22),” said Walton.

West Point will be out to avenge an earlier loss to Middlesex on Thursday, October 18.

Undefeated Mathews handed Middlesex one of two defeats this season. The other loss came early to W&L. Mathews also is the 2017 state champion and has several seniors on the squad.

Middlesex is at Mathews on Monday, October 22. Game time is 5:30 p.m. for JV and 7 p.m. for varsity.

The Tidewater District Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 24, with Middlesex hosting a team that is yet to be determined, but probably will be West Point.
