ROCKSPRINGS, Ohio — It took four competitive games, but Meigs ultimately came up on the short end of the stick Wednesday night during a 20-25, 26-24, 22-25, 23-25 setback to visiting Gallia Academy in a non-conference matchup at Larry R. Morrison Gymnasium.
Neither the Blue Angels (3-0) nor the host Lady Marauders (0-3) managed to win a single game by more than five points, and Meigs ultimately rallied back from its early setback to tie the match at one apiece. GAHS responded with wins totaling five points over the next two games, allowing the Blue and White to remain unbeaten this fall.
The Lady Marauders were 81-of-88 at the service line and recorded team totals of 27 kills, 26 assists and three blocks in the setback.
Mercadies George led the hosts with 12 service points, followed by Brooke Reynolds with eight points and Alyson Dettwiller with five points. Olivia Cremeans added four points, followed by Brook Andrus with three and Emily Kinnan with two. Chandra Mattox and Lindsay Patterson rounded things out with one point each.
Andrus led the net attack with 11 kills, followed by Kinnan with seven and George with six kills. Hannah Cremeans and Lindsay Patterson added two kills and one kill, respectively. Patterson added a team-high 22 assists, while Cremeans recorded all three MHS blocks.
