The Portsmouth volleyball team began its quest for a second-straight OVC conference championship on Tuesday evening by sweeping the Coal Grove Hornets 25-12, 25-18, 25-12.
The Trojans (2-0) used solid serving to help secure the victory. Bailey Horsley led the way with 14 points and six aces, while Allison Douthat and Aiden Fields each recorded three ace4s.
Douthat helped pace the Portsmouth offense by totaling 19 assists throughout the evening.
