Greenville comes within two points, bows to Providence

The Greenville Lady Indians volleyball team fought valiantly and to the very end of its second round Division VI playoff match against Providence Christian last week, but ultimately fell 3-2 (13-25, 13-25, 25-14, 25-19, 17-15) to the Lady Lions.

The last set, in which the Lions eventually came out on top by two points, 17-15, was the toughest by far for the Indians. Head coach Dan Brown said his squad came close to the win, though it was a case of too little too late.
“We started out the run to the end of that set leading 8-7,” Brown said. “From then on it was trading points until 15-15 when they picked up the last two points. It was tough at the end to go out like that. If we had played better in the first two games we would have won that match.”

On offense in the game, Trinity Lincoln and Autumn Brown shared top-rank honors, with Lincoln logging a 23.3 percent kill rating on 43 attempts and 10 kills. Brown did her part by penciling in eight service aces on 32 serves and a mere two errors from the backline.

In other offensive stats, Brook House had seven kills on 35 attempts while Brown and Marissa Willits each had three kills. Valerie Peter, Alex Garcia and Stevie Joseph each made one kill in the match. Lincoln also had four service aces, with Peters, House and Garcia adding one apiece as well.

Defensively, the Indians relied heavily on Peters, with nine digs and three solo blocks, while House put up eight digs and had 17 receptions. Brown was outstanding in the ball-handling department with 21 assists on 127 attempts in the game. Willits led in receptions with 20 and libero Nikole Machado ended the night with six receptions and three digs.

In terms of status in the Pioneer-Mountain League, a handful of Lady Indians led the way; Lincoln led all competition with 127 attack kills and 47 all-purpose blocks. Peters logged 84 digs, while Autumn Brown led with 96 service aces and 304 assists.

The Lady Indians finish the 2014 season with an overall record of 11-15, though they went 7-1 in league action and were tied with Westwood for the conference championship.

Graeagle Meadows Golf Course

The Graeagle Men’s Club held its last Wednesday playday of the year Nov. 19. All things considered, it was a pretty nice day to play golf. It is believed the 12 hearty men were the only golfers on the course.

Marvin Pierce was the big winner. Not only did he win first place, with a net score of 61, he shot his age with his gross score of 76. He also won a skin. Well done, Marvin. In addition to winning first, he was kind enough to buy a round of drinks. Second and third places went to John Sciborski, with a 64, and Bob McIlroy, who scored 67. Bob also won a skin while Tom Gossett collected two skins.

Afterward, chef Scotty provided a tasty chile con carne, with, of all things, egg rolls and pot stickers. Tiffany was on hand to serve us and a really good time was had by all. Special thanks from everyone to Bob Nunn, Ron Eaton and Jim Adams, who have done the business of arranging games and scoring all year.

If anyone wishes to join us next year, please contact Bryan Hansen at 836-2670. Along with several tournaments throughout the year, the Men’s Club plays every Monday, Wednesday and Friday followed by a little male bonding in the Graeagle Meadows Restaurant as the scores come in. A Friday afternoon game is in the works for those who have day jobs.

Graeagle Meadows Golf Course is in its best condition ever. So, come join us next year for all the fun.

Mt. Huff Golf Course

On Thursday, Nov. 13, the showers ended just in time for the Afternoon Scramble.

The team of Bill McRoberts, Carol Metzdorf, Gary Metzdorf and David Smuts came in first at 3 under par.

The second-place team of Darel Joseph, Margie Joseph and Dick Grace scored 2 under par.

Closest to the pin was won by Bill McRoberts and Dick Grace.

The rain politely held off until the end of the Wednesday Morning Scramble on Nov. 19. The last teams in got drizzled on a bit, but not enough to dampen their spirits.

In first place at 7 under par were team members John Bowen, Dick Grace and Leo Sorosinski.

In second place at 6 under par were Gary Metzdorf, Bill McRoberts and Mike Ingle.

Closest to the pin was won by Don McConnell, and Gary Metzdorf scored the chip-in.

The golfers were not so lucky Nov. 20, when the afternoon scramble was canceled due to rain. But then we need the rain to keep the course green. It is noteworthy that this was the first weather cancel this year.
