WATERFORD, Ohio —Sometimes you’re just outmatched.

The South Gallia volleyball team — which is still in search of its first Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division win of the season — traveled to Washington County Thursday night to take on league leading Waterford. The Lady Cats kept their perfect league record unscathed and prevailed in three games, by counts of 25-20, 25-15 and 25-15.

South Gallia (4-6, 0-5 TVC Hocking) was led by senior Courtney Haner with seven points, including two aces. Taylor Burnette, Caitlyn Vanscoy and Erin Evans each had four points and one ace, Kirstin Burnette added two points and one ace, while Maddie Simpson finished with one point in the setback.

At the net the Lady Rebels were led by Mariah Hineman with three kills and two blocks, followed by Vanscoy with two kills and one block. Evans posted two kills, while Haner and Taylor Burnette each finished with one. SGHS freshman Rachal Colburn marked one block in the loss, while Taylor Burnette had the lone South Gallia assist.

Kirstin Burnette led the Lady Rebel defense with four digs, followed by Taylor Burnette with three. Vanscoy and Evans both had two digs, while Haner and Keirsten Howell each finished with one.

The Lady Rebels will look to avenge this loss on October 8, when the Lady Wildcats invade Mercerville. South Gallia returns to action on Monday when the Red and Gold visit Belpre.
