The road warriors came up with a big triumph Tuesday night in Abilene.
Stephenville Honeybees, a Class 4A team, used high energy and aggressiveness to lift them to a four-set victory over Class 6A Abilene High, 25-17, 21-25, 25-19, 25-16.
The Honeybees, in their first season with Shay Douglas as their head coach, finally had their first regular-season home game last Friday night.
That outing produced a straight-set win over Crawford, which was the 2017 state champion in Class 2A. Other than a preseason scrimmage on Aug. 4, the Crawford contest was the first home appearance in 2018 for the Honeybees.
Douglas noted that Jaydi Griffin, who had six blocks for points along with 14 kills, had her best night of the season so far.
Teammate Chloe Goodman also had 14 kills to tie Griffin for the team lead in that match. Jayci Morton was next, with a dozen.
Gabie Lucero came up with a team-high 27 digs, followed by Hannah Huckabee and Morton with 16 each.
Huckabee was the team leader in assists, with 26, and Karlee Easterling dished out 21.
The Honeybees were scheduled to play at China Spring last night, but the results were unavailable by press time.
On Tuesday, the SHS girls will continue to get re-acquainted with Gandy Gym when they play at home against Waco Robinson, with the varsity match set for 6 p.m.
