MOUNT VERNON — Two teams that usually sport orange came to The Hive all dressed up in pink.
The Mount Vernon Yellow Jacket volleyball team displayed the consistency it lacked all season long, defeating the visiting Olentangy Orange Pioneers in five sets, 21-25, 25-19, 17-25, 25-20, 15-11, in Thursday’s Ohio Capital Conference matchup.
Both teams, trimmed out in pink to promote breast cancer awareness, battled hard throughout the match. The Jackets, down two sets to one, came back to defeat the Pioneers, who were missing a couple of players in their backcourt.
“I think the chemistry on our side of the court was great,” said Mount Vernon setter Nichole Doyle. “We have gone to five sets in so many games and we finally came back and had the gas to get through it. It was great to have that energy there.”
Doyle finished the night with 27 assists for the Jackets.
