MOUNT VERNON — A big night for the Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets was ruined by one good stretch by Big Walnut.
The Eagles went on a 16-2 run early in the fourth set of Thursday’s Ohio Capital Conference girls volleyball match at The Hive. The run made the final set look like a mismatch, but it didn’t tell the story of the match up to that point. The Yellow Jackets’ 32-30, 25-23, 22-25, 25-12 loss actually consisted of solid play, with the team matching skill and intensity with the best team in the OCC.
Mount Vernon (1-5, 1-2 OCC) didn’t commit many errors in the fourth set; the team simply didn’t have the energy to keep up. The team recorded only three kills in the set, while Big Walnut had 10. The Eagles’ Morgan Alley had three straight aces at one point.
“Our serve-receive let us down,” said Mount Vernon head coach Alan Cassell. “I think we got tired. We don’t have much depth. We tried to move a few people around, but we got tired and got frustrated.”
