One night after dropping a three-set match to Dayton on Senior Night, the Lady Wave volleyball team rebounded by taking down one of the top teams in the 3A East.

Cassie Edgmon led the team with a nine-kill performance, Aisha Sharron recorded 17 total blocks and Sativa Clark finished with 13 assists as Fallon held off Spring Creek in five games after winning the first two before a 15-13 final game win on Saturday at the Elmo Derrico Gym.

Fallon travels to Fernley on Friday and Lowry on Saturday to close out the regular season. No playoffs are scheduled for the season, but the No. 1 and No. 2 teams, Nos. 3 and 4, and Nos. 5 and 6, will face each other at the higher seed’s site. Fallon is tied with Fernley in fourth place.

In a 1A-2A clash, Oasis Academy fell to Pershing County in straight sets. The Bighorns travel to Excel Christian in Sparks on Thursday before hosting Pyramid Lake on Friday at 4 p.m. for Senior Night. Sadie O’Flaherty, Taryn Barrenchea and Sequoya Casey will suit up for their final home game.

Oasis Academy will play in the 1A West-Central single-elimination regional tournament next Friday in Tonopah.
