ROCKSPRINGS, Ohio — Some nights you’d rather forget.

The Meigs volleyball team dropped three straight games to Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division guest Athens, Tuesday night at Larry R. Morrison Gymnasium.

The Lady Marauders (3-11, 2-4 TVC Ohio) managed just one service point in the opening game, as Athens never trailed en route to a 25-8 victory. The Lady Bulldogs never trailed in the second game either, posting a 25-12 win to move ahead 2-0 in the match.

Meigs led briefly in the third game, but with the score tied at 14, Athens went on an 11-4 run to seal the 25-18 victory and the 3-0 match win.

MHS junior Morgan Lodwick led the Maroon and Gold service attack with five points including two aces, followed by Devyn Oliver with three points and one ace. Devin Humphreys posted two points and two aces, Allie Hanstine added one point and one ace, while Kassidy Betzing and Alliyah Pullins both finished with one point in the setback.

Betzing led the Maroon and Gold at the net with four kills and a block, followed by Humphreys with two kills. Pullins finished with one kill and one block, while Hanstine and Oliver rounded out Meigs’ net attack with one kill apiece. Oliver marked a team-high six assists for Meigs, while libero Jordan Roush led the defense with seven digs.

Meigs will have its shot at revenge on October 15, when the Maroon and Gold invade The Plains. The Lady Marauders will return to action on Thursday, when they visit Alexander for a TVC Ohio clash.
