"We finally pulled out all stops to come up with a win," GHS coach Trish Lowe said. "I am sure proud of the effort the team gave tonight."
It's been a tough season for the Tiger Cubs, but on Thursday they were able to come together behind some big performances.

Brooke Lewis also had a nice game with 25 digs, 17 attacks, seven kills and three blocks. She was also a force serving, recording six aces and eight points.

Braden Amis added 17 attacks, 11 blocks, 17 attacks, five digs, one stuff and seven points for the Tiger Cubs.
After winning the first game, Greencastle dropped the next two. They rallied to take the fourth game and then outlasted the Vikings in game five to grab the win.
"Things didn't always go our way, but we just kept holding on and pushing toward the light," Lowe said.
Greencastle won the junior varsity game as well, winning 25-23 and 25-22, making their record 2-12 for the season.
