The South Fork High School Volleyball team won two matches last week, bringing their early season record to 4-1, undefeated against schools in their division. In what figured to be a rebuilding year after three top players graduated last June, the Lady Cubs are off to a very promising start.

"We’ve already come a long way this year," said head coach Lisa Todd. "We have some girls who have never played before and a few freshmen making the big jump into varsity. They have worked very hard these past few weeks and we still have a lot to catch up on, but we’ve had some wins over teams we haven’t beaten in years."
This week the Lady Cubs will play tonight at Laytonville and Friday at Potter Valley. The Cubs will not play on their home court again Monday, Oct. 8, when they host a rematch with McKinleyville.
