Volleyball Splits with Brookstone and Greeneville

MACON, Ga.- After dropping five matches in a row, including its first match on Tuesday evening, the First Presbyterian Day School volleyball team (5-11) knew how important picking up a win would be.

The Vikings did just that, defeating Greeneville in two games in their final match 26-24 and 25-21.

During a back and forth battle in game one that saw seven lead changes, the Vikings were able to rally from a 23-19 deficit and win the match by two, 26-24. The Vikings rattled off a 7-1 scoring run to take game one 26-24.

In game two against Greeneville, the Vikings stormed out to an early 9-2 lead. Greeneville would slowly chip away and take the lead at 11-10 before the Vikings would bounce back and take the lead for good at 15-14. FPD would go on a 10-7 spurt to win the game and match.

In the first match, the Vikings fell to Brookstone in two games 25-8 and 25-16, respectively.

FPD returns to the court on Thursday, September 13, traveling to Yeshiva for a 5:00 p.m. match.
