         COLONY – A trip to Crest High School to participate in a triangular resulted in good effort but no wins for the Altoona-Midway High School volleyball team, as they dropped both of their Three Rivers League matches here Tuesday.

         The Lady Jets were defeated by Oswego in the opener, 25-15, 25-18, and also dropped a 25-14, 25-16 decision to the host Crest Lady Lancers.

         “The girls fought hard and didn't give up. Our passes just weren't on point tonight,” said AMHS head coach Michelle Morales. “Mariah Stackhouse was a great leader once again. I'm proud of the girls for not giving up.”
