“Winning against RHP a second time is an incredible event for New Roads volleyball, which is in the midst of a fantastic season,” said NRS Athletic Director Matt Steinhaus. “We always felt we could compete with the best teams in our league, and having secured two wins against a program like that shows we can, and well beyond this year.”

New Roads is third in the Coastal League standings.
