ROCKSPRINGS, Ohio — Talk about a comeback.

The Meigs volleyball team dropped the first two games two non-conference guest South Gallia, Tuesday night at Larry R. Morrison Gymnasium, but the Maroon and Gold rallied back to take the match win in five games.

The Lady Rebels (0-1) took a 25-15 victory in the first game, and held off MHS for a 26-24 victory in the second game. Meigs convincingly won the third game 25-12 and then took the fourth game 25-15. SGHS jumped out to a 9-3 lead in the fifth game but Meigs stormed back to claim the 15-12 triumph and the match victory.

The Lady Marauder service attack was led by Devyn Oliver with 16 points, Hannah Cremeans with 12 and Amanda Cole with 11. Brook Andrus and Lindsay Patterson each had eight service points, Kelsey Hudson added seven, while Alliyah had one.

Mariah Hineman led the Lady Rebels with 13 points, followed by Sara Bailey with 12 and Courtney Haner with 10. Tiffany Beaver had six points, Katie Bostic added five, Kirstin Burnette posted four, while Jayla Wolford marked three and Lexie Johnson had one point.

Cole led the Lady Marauders with 13 kills over the final three games, followed by Andrus with 12, Hudson with six, Cremeans with four, Oliver with three and Ellis with one. Oliver marked 11 assists in the three MHS wins, while Patterson added four. Cole and Ellis each had a block. Meigs statistics for the first two games were unavalible.

The SGHS net attack was paced by Haner with 11 kills in the match, followed by Hineman with five. Wolford, Bailey and Caitlyn VanScoy each marked three kills, while Bostic and Burnette each had two.
