The Lady Govs volleyball squad played its season opener at home against Amherst last week as the Lady Lancers took three out of the first four sets, 22-25, 11-25, 25-23, 22-25.
“With the exception of set 2 the match was highly competitive for an opening match of the season. Both teams battled and competed at a high level,” said Nelson coach Vicki Crawford. “There were many back and forth points scored. I was certainly disappointed that we did not win, but was pleased at the effort and competitiveness that we put out.”
Nelson stats: Megan Seitz, 16 digs, 10 kills; Hailea White, 19 kills; Ainsley McGarry, 3 blocks; Abbey Foley, 19 assists; and Kate Strong, 16 assists, 6 digs.
The Lt. Lady Govs also lost in the junior varsity matches.
