Callaway High’s volleyball team edged Lamar County on Tuesday for its first win of the season.

After winning a first-set thriller 31-29, Callaway pulled away late in the second and final set for a 25-20 win.

Earlier on Tuesday, Callaway (1-9) lost to Upson-Lee 25-12 and 25-20.

OF NOTE: For much more on Callaway’s win over Lamar County, see Thursday’s sports section.

SOFTBALL: Kendrick’s softball team, which was supposed to host LaGrange on Tuesday, has had to shut things down for a while because of a Covid-19 issue.

It was going to be the second Region 2-AAAA game of the season for LaGrange, which opened region play with a 7-1 road win over Columbus last week.

Also on Tuesday, Callaway’s Region 5-AA opener at Haralson County was rained out, and the game will be made up later.

On Thursday, LaGrange will host Newnan in a non-region game, while Callaway will visit Temple for a region game.
