Cougars fall to Rockville in 4

ROACHDALE -- The North Putnam High School volleyball team hosted the undefeated Rockville Rox on Thursday and proved that it wasn't going down without a fight.

The Cougars came out and won the first set 25-18, but lost the next three 25-22, 25-18, 25-13.

"This was a good loss for us," NPHS Coach Jill Schreiber said. "Yes it is still a loss in the books, but it was more than a loss. It gave the girls confidence in themselves and each other.

"They played with intensity and heart tonight, which is something they haven't done all year," Schreiber added. "The girls played with the intention to beat Rockville in the first three games, but they gave me everything they had in the fourth set. We are getting better, in small strides, but better and have finally taken the first step forward and I just hope that we can take a few more."

Carlye McGaughey led the team with eight kills and 11 digs while Megan Robinson had five kills an, eight digs and one stuff block. Leeann Davis had 12 digs while Megan Gray had 16 assists. Paxton Stephenson had three stuff blocks.
