The Meridian volleyball has found more consistency in their all around performance in the second half of the season and continued that on Tuesday night in a straight sets win on the road against conference foe Central A&M, 28-26, 28-26.
There were no easy points throughout the match and Meridian relied on nice defensive play throughout the night and good execution to fight hard and grind it out to move them to 3-2 in conference play. “This was definitely one of the most intense matches we’ve had all season and it took solid performances by everyone on the court to get the win,” said Meridian head coach Tony Holly.
Hannah Wetzel and Drew Newberry were good defensively with Wetzel tallying 2.5 blocks and Newberry pick up 14 digs added by senior Chelsea Getz’s eight kills. “There weren’t really an east points by either side and we really relied on the defensive play from Wetzel and Newberry to get the win,” said Holly.
The Hawks are now 14-10 overall and look to keep the momentum going next Thursday in another conference game at home for Dig Pink Night for Breast Cancer Awareness as they take on Clinton.
