Meyer notches 500th kill
Jac-Cen-Del senior Maria Meyer put up a career milestone on Thursday night and helped Lady Eagle volleyball pick up a big 3-2 win over South Decatur as part of Senior Night in Osgood.
Meyer bashed the 500th kill of her career in the match, doing so in a back-and-forth affair between the two Class A sectional foes.
South Decatur (14-7) opened up the night with intent to spoil the big occasion, winning set one by a 25-20 score before Jac-Cen-Del returned the favor in set two by the same score. The two teams would again trade sets to tie the match at 2-2 but the Lady Eagles used a late surge in the decisive fifth set to pull away for a 15-13 win and claim the evening.
Jac-Cen-Del had won set three 25-21 before South came back in set four for a 25-22 victory.
