Lady Wave, Southaven battle for playoff berth

By NEMS Daily Journal

Tupelo High could clinch a postseason playoff berth Thursday with a home volleyball win against region rival Southaven.
The match is scheduled for 6 p.m. at THS gymnasium.
The Lady Wave (18-4) defeated the Lady Chargers (20-6) earlier this season, 3-2, at Southaven. Tupelo is 4-1 in Class 3, Region 1 play while Southaven is 3-2.
A Tupelo loss would likely force a tiebreaker later in the season to determine the No. 2 team from the region.
DeSoto Central, which defeated Tupelo 3-1 earlier this season, leads the region with a 4-0 record.
Hannah Farmer, a senior middle blocker, leads the Wave with 139 kills and 54 blocks.
