Wellsville Lady Tigers Earn Trip To District Play

Lady Tigers were ready for Southern Local Serve last Wednesday

Head Coach Dan McKinstry offers some
encouraging words to the Wellsville team

The Wellsville Hi Lady Tigers Volleyball Team made a clean sweep of the Southern Local team this season.  This past Wednesday evening the Lady Tigers took three straight sets from the Lady Indians to claim the OHSAA Northeast District Division IV Sectional win. It was the third time this season the Wellsville team defeated Southern.  The other two wins were during the regular season.  The match was played at Lisbon’s David Anderson gym and the win was the 619th career victory for Head Coach Dan McKinstry.

The Southern Local ladies came out in the first set looking like it was going to be close all night.  They lost by only three points in that set.  However, after the slow start, the Tigers came back winning the second set 25-12 and the third with a score of 25-17.   The win puts the Lady Tigers at 21&3 for the 2012 season. 

The Lady Tigers return to action next Tuesday evening at 6 PM in Lisbon. They will face the Crestview Lady Rebels.  Crestview defeated Columbiana Heartland Christian last Wednesday in the opening match.  That match needed five sets to determine the winner.  Wellsville & Crestview have not faced each other in the 2012 Season. 
Our money is on the Lady Tigers clawing their way to win #22 for the season and moving on the District Championship to be played next Thursday. 

Good Luck Lady Tigers!!!
