MERCERVILLE, Ohio — Another tough night, only this time at home.
The South Gallia volleyball team had little luck in its home opener against visiting Federal Hocking Wednesday night following a 25-18, 25-15, 25-5 setback in a Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division matchup in Gallia County.
The Lady Rebels (0-3, 0-2 TVC Hocking) have now dropped consecutive matches in straight games while also losing their last nine games overall, which dates back to a 2-0 lead over Meigs in the season opener.
South Gallia’s best effort came in the opener as the hosts stayed within single digits, but the Lady Lancers finished the evening with 10- and 20-point victories to wrap up the sweep.
Kirstin Burnette and Courtney Haner led the SGHS serving attack with three points apiece, followed by Alana Riggle, Sara Bailey and Tiffany Beaver with two points apiece. Bailey led the hosts with two aces, followed by Burnette with one ace.
Jayla Wolford led the Lady Rebels net attack with three kills and a block, followed by Haner and Katie Bostic with two kills apiece. Bailey, Beaver, Caitlyn VanScoy and Mariah Hineman also recorded a kill each in the setback.
Bailey led the defense with four digs, while Riggle and Haner each contributed two digs. VanScoy also had one dig for the hosts.
SGHS returns to action Saturday when it travels to Oak Hill for a tri-match starting at 2 p.m.
