The Meridian volleyball team continues to play good volleyball as they went on the road for a non-conference tilt against Edinburg on Monday night and picked up a straight sets win, 25-15, 25-16. It was a different feel than most nights as they game had to me moved up in time due to maintenance and the power being shut off at the high school later in the evening. That didn’t not fluster the Hawks offense and rhythm as they took care of business in both sets to move their record to move 13-9 on the year. “Overall the team played well and it was another big night for Chelsea Getz with 17 kills. All of the hitters seemed to benefit from seniors Dominique McPeek and Abby Herbert spreading the ball around and getting 11 assists a piece,” said Meridian head volleyball coach Tony Holly.
The three seniors in Getz, McPeek and Herbert once again set the tone for the offense and also contributing on the night was Hannah Wetzel who collected three blocks and Drew Newberry’s eight digs. “We are going to need to bring our best game of on Thursday night against a Shelbyville team that went to state last year and still knows how to win,” said Holly.
The Shelbyville match up on Thursday night will be a Central Illinois Conference match and will be on the road for Meridian.
