High School Volleyball: Rams open season with triangular split

Staff Report

SAYDEL – The Greene County varsity volleyball team picked up a split Tuesday night in their first action of the season at Saydel.

The Rams dropped the opening game with Gilbert, three sets to none but won the night cap over Saydel, in straight sets, 3-0.

Gilbert may have won in a sweep, but the Rams didn’t go down without a fight. After a lackluster opening set in which the Tigers prevailed, 25-11, the Rams fought back and lost the final two sets by a combine six points. 

Gilbert won set two, 25-21 and closed out the final set squeaking out a 25-23 victory.

Greene County won set two, 25-7 and breezed through the final set, 25-6.
