The Peebles Lady Indians picked up a win in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference on Sept. 1 as they hosted the Whiteoak Lady Wildcats and handed the visiting Lady Cats a loss in four sets, 25-21, 23-25, 25-21, 25-11.
Peebles took the first set , but fell behind early in the second set, 11-5 at one point.  Behind the serve of senior Brittany Lloyd, the Lady Indians closed the gap t0 16-12, before Whiteoak added some distance, moving in front 19-13.  A side out plus two service points from Sara McFarland kept the home team threatening and a later kill by Madison Pierce drew the Lady Indians to within 21-18.  The remainder of the set was nip and tuck with a pair of service points from Tatum Arey cutting the Whiteoak lead to a single point at 23-22.  The Lady Cats got the next point, the Lady Indians the next, but when a Peebles return went into the net, Whiteoak had evened the match at one set apiece with a 25-23 win.
Set number three began with a flourish for the Lady Indians with junior Baylee Justice at the service line, aided by two Jessica Johnson kills, giving Peebles a quick 7-0 advantage and forcing a Whiteoak timeout.  A later series of service errors from both teams saw Whiteoak pull back to within 13-7 and two service points from Bayley Carey made it 13-10 in favor of the home side.
The Lady Indians responded tot hat Whiteoak run with three more service points from Justice combined with another Johnson kill to stretch their lead to 17-10.  A pair of McFarland aces made it 20-11, but the Lady Cats had another run in them, as they rallied to slice the Peebles margin to 23-19, forcing a timeout from Peebles coach Katrina Obenshain.

Up at the net for a block in last week’s match with Whiteoak are Peebles’ Jessica Johnson, left, and Josie Myers (4).  The Lady Indians got their first SHAC win of 2016, downing the Lady Cats in four sets.

After the timeout, the Lady Indians got the next point and Whiteoak the next two, but when a return by the Lady Cats went wide, Peebles had taken the third set 25-21 and a two set to one lead in the match.
With their backs to the wall, the Lady Cats grabbed the early lead in the fourth set, only to see the Lady Indians roar into control when McFarland served six consecutive scores to put her team in front 8-3 and they never looked back.
An ace among four service points from Lloyd put Peebles in the driver’s seat at 13-4, before the Lady Cats showed a spark of life and came back to cut the gap to 14-8.  That rally dissipated quickly when Peebles sent the freshman Arey back to serve and she gave her team six in a row capped by a Josie Myers kill, that gave the Lady Indians a commanding 21-8 advantage.
Whiteoak got the sets’ next three points, but with Pierce serving and Myers handling the job at the net, Peebles got the final three and in that the match, winning the fourth set by a final count of 25-11.
With that win in hand, the Lady Indians were back in action on Friday, Sept. 2, winning a non-conference home match over Felicity to improve their season mark to 2-4.  On Sept. 6 Peebles hosted Manchester in SHAC play and then on Thursday, Sept. 8, they will get a chance to avenge an earlier defeat when they travel to Brown County to battle the Eastern Lady Warriors.
