Inconsistency continues to plague Lady Red

After having one of their best games of the year at Monticello the Tuesday prior, Sullivan’s volleyball team had, what head coach Heather Lindenmeyer referred to, as their worst.

“We just played awful tonight,” said the Sullivan coach. “We had a wonderful match against Monticello. We came out so aggressive. We were in system. It was just amazing to see that, so this loss is much more disappointing, because it’s probably one of the worst.”

But signs of this worst-to-come match didn’t surface at the beginning.

Sullivan took an early 2-0 lead, but Meridian responded with four unanswered points. A Brittin Boyer kill would provide the side out and just a one-point deficit, but the Lady Hawks’ Maggie Comerford had her first of many kills on the night. Meridian tallied another four unanswered points, two of which thanks to unforced Sullivan errors. Despite stringing together three straight points and cutting Meridian’s lead to two, Sullivan fell back after the Hawks got back out to a four point lead at 8-12.     Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
