GRANDVIEW – Despite winning game one, the Grandview Lady Greyhound volleyball team faltered in a 3-1 loss to Ephrata last night.
After the visiting Tigers were downed 25-21 in Tuesday night’s first game, they rallied with 25-15, 25-19, 25-22 victories to prevail in the non-league contest.
“We went out and had a lot of momentum,” says Grandview Coach Becky Ramirez. “We just weren’t able to hold onto it. We just fell short.”
Taylor Hall paced the Lady ‘Hounds with 24 kills and 16 digs to go with three aces. Teammate Hannah Pond hustled for 21 digs last night and was strong at the net with two blocks and three kills.
Grandview received a boost from Suzie Medina’s 17 digs. In addition, the Lady Greyhound attack was led by Evann Swearingen, as she dished out 36 assists and was strong on defense with 19 digs.
Samantha Grow and Kaysie Kollmar also aided Grandview with six and five kills, respectively. Kollmar also came through with seven digs and Grow added four blocks.
The 2A Lady Greyhounds (2-2) return to action tomorrow, Thursday, when they host 4A Davis in non-league play.
“We’re going to focus on our offensive work, last night we weren’t as solid as we could have been,” says Ramirez. “We’re going to be more aggressive with our blocking and hitting.”
