GREENVILLE – The Lady Wave dropped a 3-1 volleyball match to the Vandalia-Butler Lady Aviators in Miami Valley play.

Greenville jumped out to a 20-10 first set double digit lead on their way to 25-21 win to go up 1-0 over the Lady Aviators.

“We played really well the first set,” said Greenville assistant varsity coach, Jim Hardesty. “That is the way they played this past weekend at the Arcanum tournament.”

“Pretty proud the way they played in the tournament,” Hardesty added. “They played strong and then we come back tonight and kind of looked tired at the end.”

The Lady Wave went up 3-0 to start set No. 2 before falling 25-18 to knot the score at 1-1.

The third set of the night had the Lady Wave trailing 18-23 before making a run to fall by two, 25-23 and trail 2-1 heading to the fourth set of the night.

The visitors jumped out to a 9-4 advantage on its way to a 25-13 third set win and take the MVL matchup by a 25-13 score.

“We’ll be back, we’re young,” Hardesty stated. “Our two freshman started tonight and played like freshmen, not to say anything bad about that – they’ll learn how to play a little bit stronger and then they will be a lot better and fit in with these seniors. We got some good contributions tonight.”
