Dunham extended its winning streak to four games with a five-set victory over Lakeshore in Mandeville on Tuesday night.

The Tigers won by scores of  18-25, 25-21, 25-18, 20-25, 15-8

The seventh-ranked team in the Baton Rouge Advocate Super 10 rankings, Dunham (21-3) was led by Janai Stevens' massive game of 12 blocks, 10 kills and 12 digs.

Hannah Pixley added a double-double with 16 kills and 18 digs, and Lily Johnson had nine aces.

It was a satisfying win over a tough opponent, coach Donna Pixley said. 

“We needed this,” Pixley said. “We have talked all season long about mental toughness against quality opponents. It hasn’t been there really until tonight. It’s a huge win for us. We needed a win over a quality opponent like Lakeshore to validate that we are in the mix in our division."
