H.S. VOLLEYBALL: Southern rolls past Western Hills, 3-0

BEREA — The Madison Southern volleyball team bounced back from a tough loss earlier in the week with a very solid all-around performance Thursday at home against Western Hills.

The Lady Eagles (8-6) won three tough, hard-fought sets to claim a 3-0 victory. Southern won by scores of 25-23, 25-19 and 25-21.

“We always play them close,” Southern coach Brian Grant said of Western Hills. “That’s probably the best three sets we’ve played all year. They kept their energy up and played as a team.”

Southern missed only two serves all match and got good solid performances off the bench.

After closing out a tight first set, the Lady Eagles jumped  out to a 15-12 lead in the second set. Western Hills pulled even, but Southern responded, getting a kill and a block from Jordan Adams and kill by Sara Castle to wrap up the set.

Southern trailed 15-10 in the third set, but rallied once again, getting solid serving from Brittany Gipson.

The Lady Eagles are set to return to action Tuesday at Clark County.
