KNOXVILLE — The Knoxville Panthers improved their conference record to 3-0 on Tuesday after going to Bloomfield and coming away with a 3-1 (27-25, 25-22, 17-25, 25-18) victory over Davis County.

The first two sets could’ve gone either way with Knoxville edging Davis County on both cases to take a 2-0 set advantage.
