The Wellsville Lady Tigers opened their Volleyball season notching two wins against ITCL rivals last week.  This past Tuesday afternoon they hosted the Western Reserve Lady Devils.  Then Thursday they traveled out Route 39 to take on their backyard rivals, the Lady Indians of Southern Local. 

In the match against Western Reserve Tuesday the Wellsville squad dropped the first set 22-25.  They then went on to win the next three sets 25-6, 25-17 and 25-18.  The pictures shown here are from that match.

In Thursday’s match against Southern they won the first set 25-23 and dropped the second one 12-25.  They then went on to seal win #2 winning the next two sets 25-15 and 25-20.  It was career win #600 for Coach Dan McKinstry. 

McKinstry started his volleyball coaching career at East Palestine.  He coached there for 20 years.  According to newspaper accounts he estimates that he’s been at it for 35 or 36 years now.  Our congratulations go out to both Coach McKinstry and the Lady Tigers.

Coach McKinstry is a true pioneer in the world of woman's sports!! He coached girls basketball at E. Palestine in 1976!! I am proud to have been on his first team. He was tough and made a life long impression. Congratulations Coach!! What a wonderful contribution you have made!!
