(October 2nd, 2014)-MONTPELIER: Hannah Blake did a bit of everything for Montpelier in their game against Bryan, making 10 kills, 13 assists, 13 digs, and 3 aces on the evening. Despite that well rounded effort, the Lady Locos still lost in straight sets to the Golden Bears, though that is hardly indicative to the level of play displayed by the Montpelier girls.
The first set was a slug fest, with neither side willing to relent. The girls of Bryan were able to gain just enough separation to claim victory, winning the game 25-21. Game 2 was even tighter, with the Locomotives dropping the set 23-25. On the brink of losing the series, Montpelier continued to play at a high level. Yet Bryan was able to fend them off, as the Locomotive girls fell 24-26 to lose the match.
Landri McKelvey had a strong showing for Montpelier in the loss, making 15 assists, 12 digs, 5 kills, and 2 aces. Sidney Houk and Christy Duchene each recorded 21 digs for the Locos as well.
