GRANDVIEW – A fast start nearly wasn’t enough as the Grandview Lady Greyhound volleyball team had to hang on for a 3-2 win over visiting Othello last night.
Grandview sprinted out to a 2-0 lead in Tuesday night’s non-league tilt, winning 25-18 and 25-16.
The Huskies had plenty of bark left, though, and prevailed in the next two games by scores of 25-21 and 25-18.
“We had quite a few unforced errors and we let up a little,” Grandview Coach Becky Ramirez said of her team’s lull in games three and four.
Grandview regained its mojo in the fifth and final game with a decisive 15-3 win.
“In the fifth game we had to immediately get the momentum on our side,” said Ramirez. “Kaysie Kolmar played some excellent defense for us in the fifth game.”
Evann Swearingen handed out 33 assists on the night to spark the Lady Greyhound attack and she came through with 14 digs.
Taylor Hall paced Grandview at the net with 16 kills, while also serving six aces and hustling for 11 digs.
Another standout behind the service line for Grandview was Hannah Pond with five aces to go with 14 digs and four kills. Teammate Samantha Grove knocked down 12 kills and recorded three blocks.
Grandview (1-1) returns to action tomorrow, Thursday, with a non-league match at home against Toppenish.
