OLIVET, Mich. - The Adrian College volleyball team, under the guidance of head coach Elisa Joris, dug deep on Tuesday to come back from behind to top Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association foe Olivet Collge, 3-2.
The Lady Bulldogs earn their first win on the season and go to 1-4 overall and 1-0 in the conference, while the Comets fall to 1-4 and 0-1 in league play.
After falling 24-26 and 19-25 in set one and two, Adrian came together and posted three straight wins (25-8, 25-21, 15-12) for the victory.
"We made lineup changes for game 3, which the girls felt more comfortable," said Joris. "We started focusing on our side of the court and trusted each other to play each position. Third set was a statement and it gave confidence to do Adrian College volleyball. Girls needed [the win] and it's a great way to start off the conference season."
Adrian will continue its conference swing as it travels to Alma on Friday for a 6:00pm match-up.
