LaGrange High’s volleyball team outlasted Callaway in a hard-fought match on Tuesday afternoon.

LaGrange won the two sets by identical scores of 25-22.

LaGrange and Callaway both beat Manchester in straight sets later in the day.

While LaGrange is led by veteran head coach Angie Newton, Callaway is under the direction of first-year coach Precious White.

White, who taught at a middle school in Coweta last school year, played volleyball at LaGrange College.

“We’re still a work in progress, but I think the girls have come a long way from when I first saw them,” White said.

Also on Tuesday, Troup went on the road and beat Shaw in straight sets, 28-26 and 25-19.
