PEDRO — The way things are going with the Rock Hill volleyball team, coach Mary Ferguson may need a heart physician instead of a team doctor.

The Redwomen won their third come-from-behind match in four games this season as they rallied past the Fairland Lady Dragons in give sets on Thursday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

“They’re going to give me a heart attack,” said Ferguson as the Redwomen won 21-25, 13-25, 25-13, 25-20 and 15-8.

“It was a team effort. It’s great to see that they have a lot of heart and determination. They’re just determined to win.”

In the win over Fairland the Redwomen got 12 kills and 6 blocks from Tommi Butler while Mei Ueda had 6 kills and 2 blocks.

On Tuesday, Rock Hill got its first-ever win over River Valley in another comeback, 25-22, 23-25, 19-25, 25-12 and15-12.

Rock Hill got a pair of wins last week.
