Time: 06:00 PM
Location: Mauldin High School


The Lady Mavs opened the 2010 regular season campaign on Tuesday night against the Wade Hampton Lady Generals in the MHS Gymanasium and it didn't take long for the Mavs to hit their stride.  Fueled by an early service run by Junior Katie Faith, the Mavs quickly jumped to a 10-2 lead forcing the Generals coach to burn his first time out.  But the time out was not going to slow down the Mavs in game 1.  With Senior Co-Captain Heather Granger booming kills down the line and across the court as well as serving up a couple of aces, the Mavs easily rolled in Game 1 25-13.

In game 2, the Generals were able to hang tough for the first portion of the game, with the teams essentially trading points up to an 8-8 tie.  But then the three headed attack of Granger, Sophomore Middle Hitter Kentra Washington and Junior Middle Hitter Laura Woodlee took over.  After a couple of kills by each of these players during the run, the Mavs had raced to a 19-12 lead.  From there the Mavs comfortably put away the Generals 25-16 with the closing point a kill by Faith.

In game 3, things started out the same way, with the Mavs jumping to a 10-6 lead and it looked like the sweep was on.  But the Generals took command and the Mavs play went sloppy.  Despite 7 kills by Granger in the game, the Generals closed the game with a 19-5 run to extend the match to a 4th game.

But in game 4, the Mavs picked the pace back up jumping to a quick 13-2 lead thanks to 4 Woodlee kills and 2 aces.  After trading points throughout the middle portion of the game, Washington and Woodlee put the finishing touches on the game and the match with kills for points 22 and 24 and a Wade Hampton service error on match point gave the Mavs the victory 25-15.

Next up for the Lady Mavs is a match with Greenville High at MHS Thursday night at 6:30.  Go Mavs!
