NEW ALBANY — NEW WASHINGTON-LANESVILLE

Senior Caroline Ricks had another solid effort for the Mustangs in their 25-18, 25-18, 25-20 victory. She had a double-double with 13 kills and 10 digs. Fellow New Washington senior Ashley Johnson ended up with 11 digs, eight kills and three blocks. Also for the Mustangs, Courtney Amick dished out 18 assists and Kaitlyn Schindler made 12 digs. Ricks and Schindler each served three aces.

Trailing 4-3, New Washington took control of the second set with a 13-1 run to go up 16-5.

In the third and final set, the Mustangs made another big spurt. Holding a 10-8 lead, New Washington went on a 9-3 run to go up 19-11. The Eagles answered with an 8-1 spurt to pull within one at 20-19.

“We struggled mentally at times and that’s one thing we have to focus on is the mental aspect of the game,” McCutcheon said. “When we get up, they can only score one point before we come back and we just falter in that area. That’s what we need to fix.”

New Washington sealed the match with a 5-1 run thanks to two kills and an ace by Ricks.
