Grovetown's Katie Hagins sets up the ball during the game against Westside.

In a three-way battle between area volleyball teams, it was the Grovetown Warriors who came out on top Tuesday night.
In front of their home crowd, the Warriors beat the Westside Patriots and the Richmond Academy Musketeers while the Patriots bested the Musketeers.
At the end of August, Grovetown lost four in a row, but with the wins have now won four in a row, improving to 9-7.
"Hopefully this is the turnaround point for us," said Warriors head coach Amy Slagle.
The Warriors took down the Patriots 25-11 in the first game, but found themselves down 10-9 early in game two. Behind the stong serving of senior Katie Hagins, however, they reeled off nine straight points, taking a commanding 18-10 lead and went to the 25-14 triumph.
Slagle got contributions from the whole squad which was led by Katie Chancellor's eight kills and Kayla Koester's four aces.
In the second match of the night, the Patriots evened its record at 8-8 with a 25-15, 25-17 win over ARC.
The Patriots held a slim 7-4 lead in game one before Ann Sutton Wright led an 8-1 run on her serve with three aces.
In game two, Kendall Williams recorded two aces as the Patriots jumped out to a 4-0 lead and then built it to 8-1. The Musketeers would get as close as 20-13 before the Patriots went on to the 25-17 win.
"I was disappointed to split, but I'm happy to get any win," said Patriots head coach Brian Hadden.
In both team's second match of the night, the Warriors dispatched the Musketeers (1-7) 25-8 in game one before breaking open a close game late en route to the 25-17 game two win.
Koester led the Warriors with five kills and Chancellor had six aces while Hagins, Savannah Burns and Asia Haywood each had three assists.
