The Bickleton Lady Pirates will go to the net with Glenwood on Bickleton's home court this Friday.
The volleyball match will begin at 6 p.m.
In this past Tuesday's match with LaSalle, the Pirates played well at times, but some bad passes let LaSalle put together too many runs on some very good serves.
LaSalle came away winners from that match, with scores of 25-12, 25-16 and 25-5.
"I still think we are improving, but it is going to take a lot more practice," said Bickleton Coach Tom Whitmore.
"We did have some good plays when we did pass the ball well, so that is encouraging. We are developing a couple of hitters and our serving is getting better."
This year's Lady Pirates are senior Chelsey Mercer, junior Ilsa Chapple, junior Jeannette Jarvis and freshmen Jessica Cummings, Holly Goodnight, Johanna Jensen, Dede Kibby and Morgan McBride, and eighth graders Katelynn Clinton, Star Kibby and Emily Mercer.
