No. 7 seed Lady Wave tune up for No. 4 seed Urbana in first round DII tournament action

GREENVILLE – The Lady Wave dropped a 3-0 MVL volleyball match to the Tippecanoe Lady Red Devils in Saturday morning action.

“We had moments of good stuff today,” said Greenville coach, Michelle Hardesty, “just not enough of them.”

The OHSAA DII Lady Red Devils stand at 20-2 on the season with its two losses coming at the hands of MVL rival – the DI Troy Lady Trojans owners of a 21-1 season record.

“Gets us ready for the tournament,” Hardesty said of the team’s final regular season match. “Tipp is always strong. Give them lots of credit, they are very talented.”

The DII Lady Wave sporting two freshmen, Brooke Schmidt and Lilly Camacho in the starting lineup played well in falling 25-19, 25-17 and 25-13 to the visitors in straight sets.

“Our passing is going to have to get better playing next week (tournament),” Coach Hardesty noted. “I am confident that is going to happen.”

The Lady Wave close out the season with an 8-10 conference mark and an overall 10-12 season record.

The always strong MVL Miami Valley side of the conference (Troy, Tippecanoe, Butler, Piqua and Greenville) have a combined 64-26 (.711 winning percentage) MVL mark to close out season play. The weaker Valley (Xenia, Fairborn, Sidney, Stebbins and West Carrollton) side of the MVL have a combined 26-64 (.288 winning percentage) MVL season ending record.

The MVL is made up of eight OHSAA DI teams and two DII teams, Tippecanoe and Greenville.

Greenville goes on the road tonight at Tecumseh High School, Monday, October 18 for a first round tournament matchup with the No. 4 seed Urbana Lady Hillclimbers. Greenville enters the match as the No. 7 seed team.
