ROCKSPRINGS, Ohio — Tough to slow down a team with momentum.
The Meigs volleyball team came up short of Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division leading Vinton County on Thursday at Larry R. Morrison Gymnasium, with the Lady Vikings winning their fifth straight decision.
VCHS (15-3, 9-1 TVC Ohio) led wire-to-wire in the opening set, taking a 25-7 victory. After a 1-1 tie in the second game, Vinton County led the rest of the way to the 25-17 triumph.
Meigs (7-10, 3-7 TVC Ohio) got its first lead of the night at 1-0 in the third game, but the guests were in front at 3-2 and never looked back on their way to the 25-12 victory.
Hannah Durst led the Maroon and Gold with four service points, including a pair of aces. Baylee Tracy and Andrea Mahr had two points each, with an ace by Tracy, while Mallory Hawley, Kylee Mitch, and Mallory Adams claimed a point apiece, with an ace by Mitch.
Durst also led MHS at the net with five kills. Hawley and Morgan Denney both posted three kills, while Tracy and Mitch had two each. Hawley and Mahr led the team’s defense with seven digs apiece, and Mahr also earned a team-best eight assists.
Vinton County also topped Meigs in straight games on Sept. 15 in McArthur.
The Maroon and Gold return to action on at Belpre on Monday.
