OLM Volleyball advances to Sweet Sixteen

October 18th, 2010

The Mercy Volleyball team defeated Walker on Saturday in front of a great crowd to advance to the "Sweet Sixteen" in the GHSA State Volleyball Tournament.  The win marks the first time in Mercy history that the volleyball team has advanced to this round in the state playoffs.

After a slow start and dropping a close Game One (23-25), the Lady Bobcats woke up and began playing their game. Walker did not go quietly though, as they pushed the Cats into a 5th and deciding game. Mercy came out swinging with 4 quick kills to take a 4-0 lead. After a string of unforced errors, the game was tight to the end before Mercy emerged victorious, 15-13. 

Mercy will play Gordon Lee at Gordon Lee High School in Chickamaugua, GA (Near Chattanooga, TN) this Tuesday, October 19th at 5:30 pm.
