MARSHALL -- To say that the 2008 season for the Greencastle volleyball team has been tough would be an understatement. The Tiger Cubs fell to Turkey Run in four games and moved to 3-19 on the season.
"We lost," Greencastle head coach Trish Lowe said. "It is difficult to continue on this path for all of us; the players, the coaches and the fans."
For the second night in a row, Greencastle started the night strong. They came out and won the first game, then proceeded to lose three highly contested games to drop the match.
Chelsea Samuels came through big for Greencastle, collecting 12 digs, 14 kills, eight blocks, two stuff blocks, one ace and six points. Kayla Nobles also had a nice game adding 23 digs, four kills, two aces and six points. Mallory Miller recorded 22 digs, three aces, one block and was 18-for-19 serving with 10 points. She also added 32 assists.
Brooke Lewis contributed 18 digs, seven kills, four aces and seven points, while Jordyn Lewis added 24 digs, two kills, one ace and five points. Braden Amis tallied three digs, eight kills, four blocks and one stuff block on the night. Kelsey Grzesiek had eight digs and five point, with Brooke Buckner adding three digs and five points.
The Greencastle junior varsity lost in three games. They lost 17-25, 25-23 and 11-15, dropping to 2-16 on the season.
