MCCONNELLSBURG 3, SOUTHERN FULTON 2 >> After dropping the first set in extra points, McConnellsburg rebounded to earn a Sideling Hill/Inter-County Conference victory over Southern Fulton.
"I think inconsistency continued for us tonight, but it was a back-and-forth battle every single game," Spartan coach Heidi Johnston said. "I think if we had've pulled out Game 1, we would've had a bit more confidence, but we bounced back. It came down to the wire in Game 5; it was very close the entire end of the game."
Bridgette Ritchey led the Spartans (14-2, 9-1 SHL, 8-0 ICC) with 15 kills, while Kylie Keefer had eight kills and four blocks. Carly Swope played another well-rounded game, finishing with seven kills and 16 digs. Kailey Dils was the anchor of the defense with 23 digs, and Lindsey Randler dug 21 balls to go along with 34 assists.
"Kailey Dils, our libero, held us together on defense," Johnston said. "I have to give her a lot of credit for her fight and tenacity to keep us up. We've been talking about fighting and battling if we need to, and having intensity, so we showed those things in the end."
For the Indians (7-8, 4-6 SHL, 4-5 ICC), Shaye Smartt finished with eight kills and 10 digs, while Morgan Fitz had 11 digs. Madison Breeze had a fine night from the service line, racking up 14 points on five aces.
