The Rockport-Fulton High School (RFHS) Lady Pirate volleyball team notched their eighth win in a row after defeating the Miller Lady Bucs Wednesday, Sept. 29 at home.

The Lady Pirates defeated Miller 25-10, 25-11, and 25-17. This game was to be played Tuesday, Sept. 28, but was delayed one day due to a shortage in referees.

RFHS improves their district record to 5-0 and overall record to 21-6.
