Lady Rebels sweep Belpre


BELPRE, Ohio — Simply put, the Lady Rebels brought their proverbial brooms to Belpre.

That’s because the South Gallia High School volleyball team captured a three-game sweep on Thursday night — defeating the host Golden Eagles 25-18, 25-19 and 25-20 in a Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division tilt.

The win marked the first of the season for the Rebels, which are now 1-5 overall and 1-2 in the league.

Rachal Colburn paced South Gallia with eight kills, eight aces and a pair of block-kills, while Erin Evans added five kills and Kara McCormick served up five aces.

Christine Griffith had a pair of kills, while Olivia Hornsby, Alyssa Cremeens, Aaliyah Howell and Amaya Howell had one kill apiece.

The Howell sisters served for one ace apiece, as Hornsby and Evans each added an assist.

The Lady Rebels return home, and return to TVC Hocking Division action, on Monday against Federal Hocking.
