The celebration wasn’t wild and crazy, but heartfelt, running deep and touching every member of Navarro’s soaring volleyball team that stunned No. 3 Panola Wednesday night in Carthage, beating the Fillies right there on their home court in four sets.
The Bulldogs were coming off a bitter five-set loss to Tyler on the road Saturday, and not only regrouped but redefined who they are by beating Panola, one of only three teams to have beaten them.
Navarro’s win Wednesday broke Panola’s six-match winning streak and handed the Fillies only their second loss since the 2015 season. Panola, a 2016 NJCAA Tournament qualifier ranked No. 1 at the end of the regular season, is 100-22 since 2014 and 23-4 in Arthur Johnson Gymnasium.
