SAYRE Sayre bounced back from a first-set loss for a 3-1 win over Northeast Bradford here Thursday evening in NTL Small School volleyball action.
The Lady Redskins, 3-7 overall, have now won three in a row.
"They crushed us in the sets at NEB, so It's great to play them again and be competitive," said Sayre coach Tom Shay. "Once again it was a great team effort.
"I told the girls in order to beat (NEB), everyone had to have a good night as they are arguably the most athletic Northeast team I have ever faced," he noted. "For the first time this year, we had a team-wide positive hitting percentage.
"We are getting better each match," added Shay. "Hopefully it will continue."
