Leesville Road still unbeaten in volleyball after playoff win at Apex
November 3, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
APEX - After cruising through two rounds of the 2012 volleyball playoffs, it was time for Leesville Road’s biggest postseason test.
The Pride, who had dropped three sets all season long, lost its fourth of the year in a dramatic comeback by host Apex.
Using the home crowd to its advantage, the Cougars nearly did the same in the fourth set, but the Pride withstood the fourth-game rally to come away with a 3-1 victory (25-23, 25-9, 24-26, 25-21).
Leesville Road will put its unbeaten season on the line in a home state quarterfinal match. It will play conference rival Wakefield for the fourth time this season.
“We were dominating in both the third and the fourth set, and they just made great rallies. I think it woke us up a little bit. You can’t just cruise,” coach Taine Mergenthaler said. “You’ve got to stop giving the other team 15 points a set. We play aggressive, but we’ve got to play a better aggressive.”
