SALINEVILLE OH- The Southern Local Indians are out to prove their 18 wins in 2021 was no fluke.  Valley Christian learned that lesson emphatically as Southern reeled off their 3rd straight win in straight sets 25-7, 25-8, 25-12.

The Indians dominated the Eagles behind an impressive offensive attack. Rylee Mellott set up that attack for her teammates all night long recording 52 sets and 20 assists to go along with 21 points and 10 aces. Ashley Shroades was a huge benefactor of Mellott’s effort putting away 10 kills on the night.  Aleah Bach contributed 9 points and 5 kills, while Esther Forbes provided 14 points, 5 aces, and 3 kills. Kya McCulley also recorded 10 points in victory for the Indians.

Southern (3-0, 2-0) looks to stay hot on the young season as they travel to Conotton Valley on Monday.
