Alex Sealy led the Lady Commanders with 17 kills and eight digs while Sam Finley added eight digs and four kills, Savannah Robinson six kills and an ace, Morgan Vallett four kills and an ace, Libby Nave 16 digs and Kendall Tipton two aces.

The Lady Commanders were coming off a 25-13, 25-11, 25-11 home win over East-Middle District rival Mt. Juliet Christian on Tuesday at FCS' Bay Family Sportsplex.

Lauren Wankel led the Lady Saints with eight digs, six kills and two blocks while Meredith Orr added 12 assists and April Bennett two aces as Mt. Juliet Christian slipped to 6-8.

"Friendship is extremely talented and we did not play well at all," Mt. Juliet Christian coach Bridget Bass said. "Hopefully, we can come out Thursday night [against Lighthouse Christian] and play better."

Lebanon will travel to Wilson Central today for a 6 p.m. District 9-AAA varsity match. The freshmen will serve off at 4 and the junior varsity at 5.

Friendship is off until a Monday trip to Stewarts Creek, a first-year school in the Smyrna-Blackman area of Rutherford County.
