Meigs sweeps Vinton County

By Paul Boggs -

ROCKSPRINGS, Ohio — No rest for the wicked, but no problem for the Meigs High School volleyball team on Tuesday night.

That’s because the Lady Marauders, one night after defeating Federal Hocking in a five-game thriller, captured a straight-sets sweep of the visiting Vinton County Vikings 25-18, 25-20 and 25-7 inside Larry R. Morrison Gymnasium.

The Tri-Valley Conference Ohio Division victory raised Meigs’ record to 10-11 — and 4-7 in the TVC-Ohio.

Kassidy Betzing led the Lady Marauders’ attack with 11 kills and two blocks, as Devyn Oliver’s all-around good game featured 17 assists, five digs, three aces and four kills.

Maddie Hendricks served up five of the team’s nine aces, as Alliyah Pullins posted the other ace — to supplement six kills.

As a squad, the Lady Marauders amassed 27 kills, 20 assists and 18 digs, as Jordan Roush tied Oliver in digs with five.

She also added two assists, as Morgan Lodwick had the other — along with a block.

The Lady Marauders have one regular-season and TVC-Ohio tilt left to play, as they travel to River Valley on Thursday night.
