The LeRoy-Ostrander volleyball team outlasted Lyle-Pacelli by scores of 25-17, 25-21, 20-25, 22-25, 15-12 in Lyle Thursday.

Sam Volkart, Sidney Lewison and Libertee Smalley all had nine kills for the Cardinals (4-8 overall, 3-5 SEC) and Olivia Christianson tallied 28 kills for LP (0-12 overall, 0-7 SEC).

“In the first two games we played really well and then we fell back on our heels a little bit in the third and fourth game,” LO head coach Lindsay Milks said. “Olivia Christianson had a phenomenal hitting night for them, but it was a good win for us. We needed it.”
