    Both the Harriman Lady Blue Devils and the Midway Lady Green Waves were 6-0 in District 3-A when they met for the first time Tuesday.

    Midway won the first meeting this year 3-0 and they faced the Lady Devils again Thursday. A Midway win Thursday will give the Lady Waves the regular season championship outright along with the No. 1 seed for the upcoming District 3-A Tournament.

    A Harriman win Thursday would leave the two teams tied for the top spot.
