Citizen-Times: Cougars Are Looking for 1st Playoff Victory

By Romando Dixson  – Asheville Citizen-Times – October 18, 2008

The Asheville High volleyball team enters the 3-A state playoffs on a six-match winning streak.

This is big news for two reasons:

1. The Cougars won six matches during all of the 2007 season

2. Asheville, according to NCHSAA records, has qualified for the state playoffs only once before, back in 1987. The Cougars lost their opening round match.

So the Cougars (13-8) will be playing for the program's first postseason victory when they hit the road to play at Olympic (9-11) at 1:30 p.m. today.
