The Lady Greyhounds opened third set action with a 2-0 advantage before a 10-1 Arcanum run had the home team leading 10-3 bringing a timeout from the Dixie bench.

Coach O’Dell include her bench down the stretch with the Lady Greyhounds using a 9-5 run to close within three at 15-12 followed with a 10-1 Arcanum scoring run to win the third set 25-14

“We have started playing really well as a team,” O’Dell stated. “They have a lot of fun out there. They are just a very good team unit right now – they’re a lot of fun.”
