Tiger Cubs drop marathon match on road

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

TERRE HAUTE -- The Greencastle volleyball team dropped a long match to Terre Haute North Monday night. The Patriots defeated the Tiger Cubs 25-27, 26-24, 25-23, 28-30, 15-10. Green-castle is now 8-11.

GHS coach Trish Lowe obviously wanted the win, but came away excited by the level of play exhibited by both teams.

"What a match!" Lowe said. "The fans sure got their money's worth tonight. This was a tough battle from the first serve. The match could have easily gone either way. With a couple of 'home court breaks' we definitely would have brought home the win."
