(webcast) 3A-29 Round 1- Rushville 3, South Dearborn 0

While coach Nan Scanlan’s Lady Lions won in three, the match was quite entertaining.  There were numerous long rallies and a slew of great hustle plays. Coach Denise Rose’s Lady Knights played very good defense but did not have enough power and efficiency on the offensive side to match Rushville.

The Lions led from start to finish in game one after opening with a 7-1 run.  The Knights got as close as 10-9, but Rushville pulled away scoring eight of the next nine points.  A late SD charge narrowed the gap, but the Lions prevailed 25-22.

Set two was all Rushville as the Red and Black cruised to a 25-8 final.

The final game saw South Dearborn take its only lead of the night, 4-3.  However, Rushville responded with eight straight points to regain control and sprinted to the finish in 25-14 fashion.

Our Southeastern Indiana REMC Power Player of the Match was Rushville’s Kendra Hamilton.  The senior had 14 kills which put her over 200 for the season. She also amassed 12 digs, 8 serve receptions and 2 aces.  Hamilton had the play of the match where she was chasing down a ball off the square, running away from the net and into the team bench when, somehow, got under the ball and hit it backwards over her head to the SD side of the floor.
