On Tuesday night the Mauldin Lady Mavericks JV Volleyball took to the court for a region match against the Hillcrest Rams.  From the start you could tell the Lady Mavs were playing their rival as the atmosphere was charged.  Both teams came out with some first game jitters and some unforced errors on both sides kept the game close.  The Lady Mavs received some strong serves from Middle Hitter Laura Woodlee with 3 aces and two kills from Kristina Brown, but in the end the Rams got the upper hand and defeated the Mavs 25-18.


In game two the Lady Mavs shook of the jitters and found their game.  With Juniors Kristina Brown and Brandy Cessarich each contributing 3 kills the Mavs jumped out to a quick lead.  Freshman setter Kayla Whitten came through as well with seven assists and two aces in game 2 to help lead the charge.  Up 24-23, Whitten set up Laura Woodlee with her seventh assist of the game for the game clinching kill, 25-23.


In game 3, the Lady Mavs took over!  On the strength of 2 kills by Megan Archer and some hitting errors on the Rams, the Mavs streaked to a 10-3 lead.  After a small run by the Rams got the score to 10-5, Sophomore Chelsey Scott served 4 aces and the rattled Rams could not come back with the Mavs closing out the match 15-6.

Another display of fight and determination by the Lady Mavs!!  Way to go, girls!!
