MAVS WIN OVER GREENVILLE HIGH IN SEASON OPENER:    27-25, 25-12, 25-14

 The Lady Mavs Varsity Volleyball team got their regular season off to a good start defeating Greenville High in 3 straight games, but not without some excitement and nail biting ...  In the first game, Greenville High's frontline blocking and some excellent serving kept the Lady Raiders in the game until the 52nd point as this game see-sawed back and forth with neither team being able to extend a lead beyond 3 points and the lead changing 7 different times during game 1.  Our Mav netters were aided in the first game by service aces from Rachel Woodlee, Heather Grainger, and Kim Minor. More offense was provided in the form of kills by Rachel Woodlee (2), Jordan Bowling (2), Alex Evans (1), Heather Grainger (1), Melissa Unger (1), and Jordan Stovall (1).  Defensively, Dana Landers and Tiffany Smith each recorded 2 digs, while blocks were contributed by Heather Grainger and Rachel Wooodlee.  The Lady Mavs finally prevailed in the tightly contested first game 27-25 on a service point by Heather Grainger.

In games two and three, our girls were able to impose their will on the Lady Raiders from Greenville, winning 25-12 and 25-14 thanks in large part to the excellent setting of Haley Register and Kimberly Minor who assisted Senior Captains Jordan Bowling & Rachel Woodlee, as well as junior Jordan Stovall in amassing 9, 6, and 4 kills respectively for the match.  In game 2 Jordan Stovall added 2 blocks to her outstanding performance and Jordan Bowling contributed 4 digs in the second game. 

The third game started competitively with Dana Landers contributing 5 digs and an outstanding save.  But the Lady Mavs toook full control when Rachel Woodlee went on a 15 point serving spree including 2 aces, aided by a block from
Melissa Unger and outstanding play from the whole team.
