It was a thriller at St. George as LaGrange Academy came out on top in a five set instant classic to earn its fourth win in a row. 

“It was a team win,” LaGrange Academy head coach Scott Lewis said. “They had to fight and contribute, and they played for each other.” 

The first set saw the Warriors earn a relatively comfortable 25-16 win, but this was the last time the match would feel comfortable for the Warriors. 

LaGrange Academy narrowly won the second set 25-21 and looked like it might cruise to a win. It was not to be as St. George rattled off two straight 25-17 sets to tie the match at two sets apiece. 

The fifth set tie break was a nervy affair as neither team could pull away. The Warriors ended up winning the fifth set 17-15. 

LaGrange Academy improved to 4-1 on the season. The Warriors will get a chance to avenge their only loss of the season next time out as they travel to take on LaFayette Christian School in a big rivalry match on Thursday at 5 p.m.
