Monticello falls to Powhatan in volleyball

Monticello’s volleyball team hit the road and fell Tuesday night, dropping a 3-1 decision to Powhatan, a future member of the Jefferson District.

After falling in the first two games — including a narrow 26-24 loss in game two, the Mustangs bounced back with a 25-15 win in game three. Powhatan then responded with a 25-21 game four to close out the match.

The Mustangs got a trio of strong performances despite the loss, with Kate Geldmacher coming up with 18 kills, Taylor Hopkins had 12 digs and Mariah Williams dished out 38 assists.
