ROCKSPRINGS, Ohio — Another positive night … without as much work.
After fending off Southern in five games the night before, the Meigs volleyball team made quick work of visiting Belpre and remained unbeaten following a 25-21, 25-17, 25-15 decision in a non-conference matchup Tuesday at Larry R. Morrison Gymnasium.
The Lady Marauders (2-0) trailed twice by five points in the opening game, but the hosts rallied back from a 13-8 deficit by scoring 17 of the final 25 points to secure a 1-0 match advantage.
The Lady Golden Eagles built an early 6-1 lead in Game 2 and managed a 3-1 edge in the finale, but Meigs answered the call both times in rather convincing fashion to wrap up the straight-game decision.
Andrea Mahr paced the hosts with six service aces, while E.J. Anderson and Jennifer Parker both added two aces apiece. Mallory Hawley led the net attack with 14 kills, while Maggie Musser chipped in eight kills.
Mahr dished out a team-26 assists and Anderson paced the defense with 14 digs.
