The Volcanoes wasted no time getting their groove back after losing to Liberty Christian on Jan. 31. Last week, Chester was right back into the swing of things with two more wins to add to its standings.
The Volcanoes easily handled Los Molinos on Feb. 4 with a 61-44 home win. Three days later, Chester traveled to Mercy for a 69-52 victory. The two wins upped Chester’s record to 18-4 overall and 7-2 in league.
Chester’s only two league losses were to Liberty Christian, a team in a higher division than the Volcanoes. Chester’s wins last week elevated the team to second in the Five Star League standings and third in the Northern Section Division VI.
