Coal Grove lost 31-29 and 27-25 in two great sets to begin the game, but then won 25-17, 25-20 and 15-9 in the tiebreaker to take the Ohio Valley Conference win.

“Tonight, we had an overall great team performance. They played together and got the job done.”
Addi Dillow led the group effort with 18 points, 18 kills, six ace serves and 27 digs while Kaleigh Murphy put in an impressive performance with 22 points, seven kills, three ace serves and 19 digs.
