PEDRO — Chalk up another five-set win for the Rock Hill Redwomen.

Rock Hill downed the Minford Lady Falcons on Monday in five sets, 14-25, 25-20, 25-16, 22-25 and 15-4.

The win gave the Redwomen their third win in the last four matches. They are now 10-3 on the season.

“The girls are playing better as a team,” said Rock Hill coach Mary Ferguson. “They play together well. They’ve come a long way.”

Katie Johnson had 21 kills and Mei Ueda 17 kills in the win over Minford. Tommi Butler had a solid game with 9 kills and 4 blocks and Brooke Hanshaw added 5 kills.

Last week the Redwomen were 2-1.

They lost the first two sets at Wellston on Monday, then rallied to win 11-25, 21-25, 25-16, 26-24 and 15-11.

Rock Hill topped Chesapeake on Tuesday in an Ohio Valley Confefrence match 25-19, 25-19 and 1-0 (9-7) in a set the Lady Panthers had to forfeit.

The Redwomen fell to River Valley on Thursday in an OVC game, 27-25, 17-25, 23-25 and 21-25.

Rock Hill visits Coal Grove on Tuesday in a key Ohio Valley Conference match.
