MAVS VOLLEYBALL DEFEAT GREENVILLE IN STRAIGHT SETS 25-11 26-24 25-23

On Thursday, the Lady Mavs volleyball team played their second match of the season against the Greenville High Red Raiders.  Just like Tuesday night, the Mavs got off to a quick start!  With the match just a few minutes old, the Greenville coach needed to call her first timeout to try and settle down her team as the Lady Mavs had stormed to a 10-2 lead.  The timeout was not successful and with Senior Co-Captains Heather Granger (6 kills) and Dana Landers (12 digs) pacing the way, the Mavs cruised to a game one victory 25-11.

In game 2, the Red Raiders finally showed up.  A scrappy defensive bunch from the heart of the city, made the going to tough for the Lady Mavs.  The Mavs found themselves down midway through the game and had to burn a timeout of their own.  Coach P made a defensive substitution with Junior Sammi Hauser making a couple of nice digs and with Granger and Junior Outside Hitter Katie Faith combining for 10 kills in the game, the Mavs overcame a late 4 point deficit (18-22) to claw back and gain a 26-24 victory.

Game 3, would be very similar to game 2.  The Red Raiders held tough and again took a lead late into the game.  But again, the Lady Mavs would fight hard on this night and overcome another late deficit to win 25-23.  Junior Setter Kayla Whitten, who had 27 assists on the night, fed her big hitting, red headed outside hitter Granger late in the game to complete the comeback.  Granger finished the night with a total of 22 kills!

The Lady Mavs will try and continue the win streak with their first region match, in the toughest region in the state (2AAAA), when Boiling Springs makes its way to MHS from Spartanburg County on Tuesday.  Game time is 6:30.  Go Mavs!
