Volleyball: Tigers send Austin packing


The Farmington volleyball team started the season in fine fashion last Thursday with a convincing sweep of the Austin Packers at Tiger Gym.

The Tigers used sustained runs in all three games to pull away for a 25-13, 25-9, 25-12 victory.

A long service run by Emma Fahning helped build an 18-5 lead in Game 1. Game 2 featured a 9-0 streak by the home team and Game 3 ended with an 11-1 surge.
