After a string of 11 straight wins, Galion dropped their last two and were in need of a win Thursday night at Colonel Crawford. The Tigers would indeed bounce back with a dominating 3-set victory, wrecking the Eagles 25-13, 25-7, 25-15.

"I told the girls we need to get back on track and get refocused." Galion head coach Jaime Valentine says. "And they did what they were supposed to do."

Junior Reanne Neal had a monster performance with a team high 12 kills for the Tigers, while senior Caroline DelGreco posted 29 assists and sophomore Taylor Valentine added 6 kills and 6 digs.

Thursday's win helps Galion keep pace with Upper Sandusky and Buckeye Central who are in a 3-way tie atop the NCC standings at 7-1. Coach Valentine says it's been a goal all season long to capture the conference crown after finishing second behind Wynford and the Rams a season ago.

"We're tired of finishing second." Valentine says. "They're ready to leave the NCC winning the last NCC league championship."

The Tigers are now 12-3 overall and will play at Crestline next Tuesday before a big showdown at home with the Bucks on Thursday.
