BELPRE, Ohio — A slow start, but it didn’t take long for the Lady Marauders to fight their way out out it.
The Meigs volleyball team dropped the opening set of Monday’s non-league match at Belpre, but won the next three for the 3-1 victory.

After a pair of lead changes in the second game, the Lady Marauders (8-10) closed with an 8-to-1 run for a 25-15 victory.
MHS never trialed in the third game, leading by as many as 11 points and holding on for the 25-22 win.
There were two lead changes in Game 4, before the Maroon and Gold sealed the 3-1 win and 25-14 victory with a 14-to-3 run.
Mallory Adams led Meigs with 16 service points, followed by Andrea Mahr with 11. Hannah Durst finished with eight points in the win, while Kylee Mitch and Baylee Tracy had two points apiece. Mallory Hawley rounded out the MHS service with five points.
