The Southwood volleyball team made their second trip of the week to play a county opponent Thursday visiting the Wabash Lady Apaches. After a close first game the Knights would get it going in a 25-23, 25-13, 25-15 win.
 
The Lady Apaches came out swinging in game one, not showing any intimidation for the Knights. Taking advantage of some Knight errors while getting a kill from Brooke Irgang and an ace from Alexis Hartley the Apaches led 5-4 and had the lead at 11-8 when Southwood got kills from Bailey Lundmark and Drue Gentry to knot the score at 11. Wabash would then get two kills from Sydni Mullett and one from Sam Irgang to grab a 17-13 lead before the Knights answered with five straight to go up 18-17. During the run Drue Gentry had an ace with Emilie Harnish getting a kill. With the Knights leading 20-19 Wabash would get a kill from Kristin Cromer during a 3-0 run to go back up 22-20 and led 23-21 when Harnish and Lundmark took over at the net to score four straight for a 25-23 Southwood win.
