HARDIN - Calhoun's girls' volleyball team pushed its winning streak to six matches with a 25-20, 25-15 victory over Pittsfield in the home opener.

"Our home opener against Pittsfield started a little rough," Calhoun head girls volleyball coach Missy Zipprich said. "We struggled in the first set, going back and forth with a lot of errors. I am not sure if it was nerves having a large home team or the heat as the gym felt like a sauna. We pulled it together by the end and won 25-20. Our second set went a little smoothly, but we still didn’t play at our full potential. I have full faith we will clean things up as the season progresses."
