After dropping their second conference game to Orrville on Tuesday, Madison needed a win over Lexington on Thursday to keep pace with the Red Riders for the OCC title chase. Lady Lex entered Wayne E. Miller Gymnasium just a game back of the Rams in the OCC chase, but Madison would take care of business at home with a 4-set win.

"This one was really big after our loss Tuesday." Says Rams junior Ali Brown. "It couldn't have made us happier winning tonight after everything that happened Tuesday."

Brown says that the team was really down on their selves after the loss to Orrville, but pulled things together at Wednesday's practice because "they had to win this game" against Lexington to keep up with the Red Riders in the conference.

Madison sophomore Kamilla Brown agreed, saying, "We needed this game more than anything and we did what we had to do." Kamilla added that she also wants to win an OCC title "more than anything." 

Lexington entered the 2013 season as the defending conference champs, but after falling 25-23, 26-28, 25-20, 25-13 to the Rams on Thursday, they can only hope for a tie with some serious help. Rams junior Mekaila Grose says the win over Lady Lex was huge for them to try and make a statement.

"Last year since we didn't get [the OCC title] this is huge." Grose says. "We're trying to prove something this year."

With Orrville knocking off Clear Fork in 3-sets on Thursday, they remain in a 2-way tie with the Rams at 10-2 in the OCC with a pair of conference games remaining for each squad. Orrville has handed 18-2 Madison their only two losses of the season, while Lady Lex is responsible for the 16-3 Red Riders only two OCC defeats thus far.
