The Lady War Eagle Volleyball team started off district play with a convincing victory over new 14-5A foe, Bryan three sets to none (27-25, 25-17, 25-20) and upped their overall record to a stellar 22-5 before a capacity crowd in The House That Sledge Built Friday night.

The volleyballers started off the evening going through the motions allowing the less talented Lady Vikings to hang around before waking up and taking the initial stanza in extra points. It was back to normal for sets two and three.

Victoria Harris led the way with 15 kills as Bailey Sheranko toughed out 17 digs and Jaclyn (Jackie) Ward served two aces. The assist column goes to the Oak Ridge student section and Cheerleaders. The support being shown for Oak Ridge athletes in 2012 hasn’t been seen since the days of the “Wrecking Crew” when everyone in the stands had on a hard hat. NOTE TO BOOSTERS: Go out and purchase a bunch of construction helmets. These fans are ready to do work again!

Oak Ridge travels to College Park on Tuesday night as the Lady Cavaliers open their district season. With the odd number of teams in 14-5A, CP had Friday night off.

See you at College Park Tuesday night!

Doug Sarant, Oak Ridge Now

Born and raised in New England, Doug promises he got to Texas as fast as he could. He earned the much needed "piece of paper" from Sam Houston State, proving to himself he could start and finish something. Doug's interests include coaching and playing any sport and still plays lacrosse competitively. He also enjoys going to dinner theaters, though he complains there just aren't enough of them in the area. Doug was brought up in a cultured environment, having suffered through dozens of symphonies and operas with his way too over-educated mother. At the end of the day, Doug is just a dad and husband and claims to be good at both.
