The Green Forest Lady Tigers picked up a pair of conference road victories last week, defeating Bergman in four sets on Monday, Oct. 7, and then outlasting Valley Springs in five sets the next day.

Green Forest defeated Bergman 23-25, 25-19, 25-14, 25-13. Against Valley Springs, the Lady Tigers rallied after falling behind by a set to win 25-12, 16-25, 21-25, 25-13, 15-13.

It was Green Forestís second victory of the year over Valley Springs, where Lady Tigers coach Christie Popejoy spent several seasons before moving to Green Forest this fall.

Green Forest (14-7, 9-2 3A North) beat Clinton in three sets on Thursday, Oct. 10, then swept Yellville-Summit in three sets on Monday.
