Southwest Covenant entered Monday’s match with Union City shorthanded with two starters out for medical reasons but that didn’t stop the Patriots, as they went on to win three sets to one.
The Patriots lost the first set 25-21 but they rebounded quickly by winning the next three sets 25-15, 25-17 and 25-22.
Southwest Covenant coach Samantha Lindsay said she was proud of her team for staying together in a tough match.
“Very proud, tough win,” Lindsay said. “It’s not easy when you are down two starters, but our girls really fought hard and played tough.”
Patriot sophomore Macie Noland stepped up for Southwest Covenant in the match with 25 kills and just one error on the night.
Southwest Covenant will have the remainder of the week off from matches. They will return to the court at 7 p.m. next Tuesday at the Harding Fine Arts Academy.
“Macie played great for us,” Lindsay said. “She stepped up when we needed her most. It will be good to be able to get healthier this week since we have no more matches. We will continue to work hard in practice and try to work on some things we need to improve on before next Tuesday.”
