MEDORA — Something just didn’t seem right about the Medora volleyball team in the first set of Monday’s match against South Decatur.
But the team that seemed lifeless to begin the match picked up its all-around game and rallied with three straight wins. The Hornets came back from a 25-13 loss in the first set to win 25-20, 25-8, 25-22.
“We’ve been running a 5-1, and we discussed it and we decided we’re going to go back to a 4-2,” Hornets coach Sara Carney said. “I think the slow start was getting settled and getting back into that rotation and getting comfortable. I think it took a little bit to adjust the defense back. Once we got that back and everybody talked and everybody was settled and got comfortable, I think everything was fine.”
South Decatur went to its middle hitter often in the first set to take an early 11-1 lead. Late in the set, the Cougars went back to her for three of the final four points.
