The Lady Chiefs recorded two losses to Lumberton going 1-3 in the first series of four games on Sept. 8, and 1-3 in the second series of four games played Sept. 21.
Lawrence County also handed the Lady Chiefs two defeats in the two series played between the two schools. No scoring breakdown of the sets was available.
Neither Lumberton or Lawrence County play in the Chiefs’ district.
Originally, the season called for home and away series to be played with Wesson, Bogue Chitto, Hazlehurt and Port Gibson, but the four schools called off their games because of the coronavirus pandemic.
