Rallying from a 10 point deficit midway through the first set, Medina rebounded to defeat visiting Lyndonville 25-22, 25-9, 25-10 this evening in a non league volleyball match.

Lyndonville built up as much as a 14-4 lead in the opening set as Kennedy Clark served up points 2-5, including three aces, Cierra Riley points 8-11, with one ace, and Jessica Harling points 13-14 with an ace.

However, Medina rallied to claim a 25-22 win as a five point run of service points by Emily Kams (6-10) ignited the comeback. The rally also featured two spiking kills each by Lexie Sargent and Abigail Maines and one by Kams.
