Copperas Cove’s Raven Dickerson (5) and Megan Diaz leap for a block attempt against Midway hitter Allison Jones during their 2.5 hour, five-set contest Tuesday at Bulldawg Gymnasium. The Pantherettes won 3-2 (30-32, 25-21, 25-20, 22-25, 6-15).

Epic Battle

Lady Dawgs fall to Midway in five-set thriller



On paper, the showdown between No. 25 Copperas Cove and No. 23 Waco Midway looked to be an epic battle between the two top programs in 12-6A. What ensued on Tuesday night proved even better than advertised. The Lady Dawgs (27-9, 2-1) and Pantherettes (27-7, 4-0) combined for 135 kills and 223 digs in a back-andforth, 2.5 hour, five-set thriller at Bulldawg Gymnasium on Tuesday. “It was a great match and we had opportunities,” said Copperas Cove head coach Cari Lowery. “I’m proud of them because we started every single game at a deficit and had to fight back. I’m not proud that we started in a deficit, but I’m proud that they fought back. We needed a game like that. We haven’t had a five-game match all year. That’s going to be good for us going into the playoffs, hopefully.
