Lady Pirates volley over Lions

The Greensburg varsity volleyball team won a back-and-forth match over Rushville in four sets Tuesday. The Lady Pirates defeated their new conference rivals 25-17, 23-25, 25-18, 25-15 at home.

The Pirates bounced back from the set-two loss by building on an early 4-1 lead in the third set. Rushville climbed as close as 13-10, but Greensburg put away the Lions with five straight points. The hosts went ahead 11-3 in the clinching fourth set and never led by less than five points.

Second-year head coach April Hershauer said she sees improvement in the team, which improves to 4-5 on the season.

“We’re getting better,” she said. “We’re working hard on our passing to get it where we want it.”

Sophomore Taylor McIntosh led her team with nine kills, while senior Claire Welage and sophomore Keauna Schultz notched seven each. Welage served 100 percent on the night.

Schultz tallied a team-high five aces, while sophomore Mackenzie Kovacich recorded a team-best 13 assists.

Greensburg combined for 31 kills and 13 aces.

The Greensburg JV team beat Rushville 25-15, 25-18 in the first match.

The Lady Pirate varsity squad claimed second place in the Scottsburg Invitational, beating South Dearborn and Scottsburg, but falling to Seymour in the final match.

“We played well against them, but not well enough,” said Hershauer. “I’m happy with the way we’re progressing.”

Greensburg travels to Oldenburg Academy Thursday night, with the junior varsity match starting at 5:30 p.m. instead of 5 pm.
