Following one of Seymour volleyball’s worst season ever (8-25), the Owls are off to a good start. After defeating Jeffersonville in five sets on Saturday, the Owls beat the Columbus North Bull Dogs in four sets on Tuesday. The first set was tied at 13-13, until the Owls went on a 7-0 run, taking a 20-13 lead. The Bull Dogs came back, making the score 22-20, but the Owls pulled away, while Junior Sophia Stahl ended the game with a kill, putting Seymour up 1-0.

The Owls maintained momentum heading into the second set, taking an early 7-4 lead. The Bull Dogs then bounced back, taking a 9-8 lead forcing Seymour coach Angie Lucas to call a timeout.

The Lady Owls were leading the set 22-17, but after a big kill, the Bull Dogs started a rally. Seymour was then up 24-22, but they gave up two points in a row, and ended up losing the set 29-27.

Seymour won the third set 25-21, giving them a 2-1 lead, one set away from victory.

With Columbus North up 12-7 early in the fourth set, the Owls needed a big push to avoid going into a fifth set. The Owls got the push, and battled back, making the score 21-19, forcing North to call a timeout. Down, 23-19, the Owls scored, giving the serve to junior Carlee Robinson. She had four serves in a row, including an ace that hit the net and rolled over, landing right in front of all the North defenders. Giving the Owls their second win of the season.
