McARTHUR, Ohio — Better late than never.

Finally, the River Valley High School volleyball squad is officially in the win column in the Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division —thanks to the Lady Raiders sweeping host Vinton County 25-20, 25-23 and 25-19 on Tuesday night.

River Valley began its season at 2-1, but lost a dozen consecutive before a victory over Ohio Valley Christian School snapped its losing streak.

As part of that skid, the Lady Raiders dropped a four-set decision against the visiting Vikings on Sept. 14.

Since then, the Raiders had dropped their last three — but righted the ship for one night at least.

With the win, River Valley is now 1-11 in the TVC Ohio — part of 4-16 overall.

The Raiders racked up 21 team kills out of 95 attacks, and served up 11 aces out of 66 serves in play.

They also amassed a dozen digs, 18 assists and three blocks.

The Raiders returned home, and returned to non-league action, on Wednesday night against South Gallia.

River Valley will close out the league slate, and its regular season, against Alexander on Thursday.
