The LCHS Maids volleyball team traveled to Gilmer County Wednesday, Oct. 3, for a tri-match with the Gilmer County Lady Titans and Braxton County Lady Eagles. Lewis County never needed a third game in the best two-out-of-three contests rolling over both opponents in two games.
The first game against Braxton County was close until a thunderous spike from Anna Tucker seemed to spark the Maids and they rolled a 25-20 win in the game. The second game was more of the same with strong play at the net from Tucker and Seanna Stump and the a great all-around game from Tiffany Curtis to give Lewis County the 2-0 match win over the Lady Eagles.
Tucker had four kills in the contest to go along with six pushes and five aces. Curtis added another five aces in the match.
The first game of the second match against Gilmer was again very much the same with Lewis County taking the game 25-17 behind all-around strong play from the entire team.
The second game was a much closer affair and at one point it looked like the Maids might drop their first game of the evening as Gilmer County moved to game point, but the Maids came roaring back in a thrilling game that had the crowd on the edge of their seats. Lewis County capped off the perfect night when Tucker scored the final point to seal a 28-26 game win, and 2-0 match victory.
Tucker had six kills on eight hits and added two aces and Stump added four blocks and five kills on eight hits.
The Maids look to continue this strong run when they travel on Buckhannon Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 6 p.m.
