Middlesex High girls down Washington & Lee
The Lady Chargers defeated W&L in the first game 25-15, and pulled out a narrow 25-23 victory in game two.
W&L got back into it with a 25-23 win in game three before Middlesex (4-1) shut the Lady Eagles down 25-16 in game four to win the non-district match.
“We had a lot of mental errors and our energy was a little low,” said MHS coach Jennifer Harrow. “Easy balls hit the floor with players watching.”
Kelsey Hainley was out with an ankle injury, Harrow noted. “That threw off our rhythm a little, but they were able to pull themselves together for the win.”
