Yellow Springs Bulldogs Win over Troy Christian in Volleyball

On Sept. 23 the YSHS Bulldogs went up against friendly rival Troy Christian.  The Eagles fought hard seeking to make up for their loss in the first meeting between these two teams.  Yet the YSHS team held together through the long match and collected the win  13-25, 25-20, 25-20, 20-25, 20-18.  In the third game the Bulldogs came back behind to tie it up at 18 and then win it on a tip kill from setter Stephanie Marion (l). Stephanie also provided three very helpful aces in the final game.  Maya Hardman (r) pulled her weight in the match contributing 14 kills, 7 blocks and 5 aces.  Kennedy Harshaw-Butler was also a big help with 10 kills for the day.  Yet it was the hard work of all 7 players on the court that brought in the win.  The team members showed above average ability to play together, to trust each other, and to share the job.
