NELSONVILLE, Ohio — Sometimes you just run into a team that’s rolling.

The Meigs volleyball team dropped a straight game decision to Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division host Nelsonville-York on Thursday in Athens County, giving the Lady Buckeyes eight wins in a row.

Nelsonville-York (12-2, 6-1 TVC Ohio) led wire-to-wire en route to a 25-10 win in the opening game.

NYHS scored 11 in a row to start the second game, but Meigs (4-6, 2-5) claimed the next seven markers. MHS battled back to within two points, at 18-16, but eventually fell 25-20 in Game 2.

The hosts scored the first four points of the third game and never looked back, capping off the 3-0 sweep with a wire-to-wire 25-14 win.

Leading the Maroon and Gold, Kylee Mitch and Andrea Mahr both had six service points, with two aces from Mitch and one from Mahr. Mallory Hawley, Mallory Adams and Hannah Durst finished with three points apiece, with an ace apiece by Adams and Durst, while Baylee Tracy came up with two markers in the setback.

Durst and Hawley led Meigs at the net with 10 and nine kills respectively. Katie Hawkins came up with four kills for the guests, Mitch added a kill and a block, while Mahr finished with team-highs of 14 assists and 10 digs.

NYHS also topped the Lady Marauders in their season opener on Sept. 1 in Rocksprings.

The Maroon and Gold will be back at home on Monday against Southern.
