WILMINGTON — The Xenia High School girls varsity volleyball team is off to a strong start to their 2019 season. The team has claimed a pair of road wins so far: a 25-20, 25-16, 25-23 win Aug. 17 at Newton; and on Monday they won in straight sets 25-17, 25-19, 25-21 over host Wilmington.

The Bucs (2-0) hosted Miami Valley League foe West Carrollton on Tuesday, but a score had not been reported as of press time.

Through the two games, Tristin Conner leads Xenia in kills with 10, Haley McManus has doled out 16 assists, Sydney Shuttlesworth is currently third in the MVL in digs with 15, and Camille Hughes leads the league in blocks with four.

Coached by Jessica Threats, Xenia is back in action at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22 when they head north to Tipp City to take on Tippecanoe.
