Volleyball: Lady Tigers pick up first win of season

Tuesday, August 31, 2021

The Green Forest Lady Tigers notched their first victory of the 2021 volleyball season last Thursday, beating Mountain Home Christian in straight sets.

The Lady Tigers won 25-20, 25-19, 25-15.

“They weren’t a bad team and we beat them in three sets,” Green Forest coach Terri Harness said. “It was good to get that win because we’ve got a tough week coming up.”

Before the win over Mountain Home Christian, Green Forest dropped its opener to Bergman in four sets.

“We played really well, but we just couldn’t finish off some sets,” Harness said. “We’re still kind of working on nailing down some positions. Once we get that done, then I think things will smooth out.”

Harness credited seniors Samantha Delavin and Samantha Uvieta for providing leadership.

Green Forest hosted Lincoln on Monday for the first of three home matches this week. Hackett visits on Tuesday, and the Lady Tigers will host Elkins on Thursday.
