For three sets Monday night, it seemed as though The Woodlands’ volleyball season would end in Montgomery. In the bi-district round. For the two-time state champion Lady Highlanders. But The Woodlands found the resolve and the heart of a champion to win in five sets, taking a thriller 22-25, 25-15, 24-26, 25-20, 15-13.

“Maybe it was the home- court advantage,” The Woodlands coach Terri Wade said. “I don’t know but we weren’t really on our game. And it’s hard to be on your game when the other team is pushing you that hard and wanting to win it more than anything.”

The Woodlands takes a 32-5 record into the area round while Montgomery finishes its season at 23-20. click here for complete story
