ROTHSAY — The hosting Rothsay Tigers could not prevent a three set sweep by Little Eight Conference opponent Underwood Rockets (25-20, 25-16, 25-14) Tuesday evening.
“I saw many improvements tonight from our team,” Rothsay coach Heather Reber said. “Underwood is always near the top of the conference so the fact that we played as well as we did is encouraging.”
The Rockets were hot from the service line as Megan Biegler went 10 for 10 with an ace, while teammate Brianna Fitzgibbons finished the night 9 for 9 with three aces.
“The sets were back and forth and fortunately we were able to make some good runs in each set to pull away with a victory,” Rockets coach Diane Ross said.
The Tigers will look to right the ship as they travel to take on Lake Park-Audubon Thursday at 7:30 p.m., while the Rocketswill battle Brandon-Evansville Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
