The Grand County Lady Devils’ volleyball team improved to 8-5 (1-2) on season Wednesday, Sept. 13 after defeating the Monticello Lady Buckaroos, 3-2, on a non-region road match.

The Lady Devils came out strong in the first set, blasting the Lady Bucks 25-15. It wasn’t long before Grand found themselves fighting for their lives in the second set, which they dropped, 29-31.

Grand fought back in the third set, winning it 26-24; after a strong performance by Monticello in the fourth set, the Lady Bucks tied the game at 2-2, recording a 25-15 score. The Lady Devils would not be denied the victory, however, as they fought to a 15-12 win in the fifth and decisive set to take the match.

The Lady Devils also fought a five-set battle (15-25, 24-26, 25-23 25-20, 14-16) with the Emery County Lady Spartans, falling only after a two-point loss in the fifth set.

Grand County will host the Manti Lady Templars tomorrow night, with action beginning at 3 p.m. as part of the Red Devils’ homecoming activities. The Lady Devils will face North Sanpete on Saturday starting at 4 p.m.
