VOLLEYBALL: Big Green bounces Tigers

October 19, 2011

ELIDA — The Waynefield-Goshen Tigers hung tough, but could not overcome a strong Ottoville Big Green squad in a Division IV volleyball sectional semifinal Wednesday at Elida High School.
The Big Green (9-11) were taller and deeper and fed a relentless line of power hitters to the front row in a 25-19, 25-11, 25-16 sweep of W-G.
“I think my girls faced up to that rather well,” Tigers coach Karen Dunson said. “They talked and they moved. We got some plays on the net that I think were really nice. Once they got used to the game, we were picking more stuff in the back.
