BUNN -- After a brief bump in the road, the Bunn Ladycats are once again speeding toward a strong finish in the competitive Northern Carolina Conference volleyball standings.

The Ladycats opened their campaign with 13 straight wins, only to slump with four setbacks in a row.

Since then, Bunn has embarked on a six-match victory streak, including a doubleheader sweep Tuesday at Roanoke Rapids.

Bunn won the first match 25-17, 25-14 before finishing things off with a 25-12, 25-13 decision at the historic RRHS Gymnasium.

In the opening match, Destini Davis was 10-of-10 serving and Tainasha Vines delivered 13 kills.

The finale featured more of the same as Vines sent down nine kills and Stephanie Williams served at 7-of-7.

“We have worked out some kinks and put (the losing streak) behind us,’’ said BHS veteran skipper Henry Jones. “We are looking to get the best (conference) seed that we can and we are trying to get ready for the conference tournament.’’

Bunn appears destined to finish in a three-way tie for second place behind South Granville -- unless the Ladycats can upset SG in Thursday’s regular season finale in Creedmoor.

If that doesn’t happen, BHS will be tied with Southern Vance and Franklinton for the No. 2 position.

Under that circumstance, the teams will draw for the highest seed for next week’s tournament.

But tourney finish will determine the Nos. 2-4 seeding out of the NCC for the upcoming Class 2-A State Volleyball Playoffs.

Bunn continued its winning ways with a pair of key victories last week, including a Wednesday decision at backyard rival Louisburg.

BHS staved off a game point in the opener before rallying to win 26-24, 25-18 and 25-17.

Vines was effective for the Ladycats with 9-of-9 serving to go with a team-high 17 kills. Setter Haley Dickerson was 10-of-11 serving and offered nine assists.

Thursday, Bunn played its last regular season home match and topped league foe Durham School of the Arts 25-10, 25-16, 23-25 and 25-19.

Dickerson contributed 20-of-21 serving and 10 assists, while Jayla Cofield (16-of-18) and Jaden Richards (16-of-17) were also effective from the service line.

Vines paced the Ladycats offensively with 15 blasts.

Bunn is now 19-4 overall and 10-3 in the NCC heading into Thursday’s match at South Granville.
