in the second set.

 The match started off well for the Lady Pioneers. They opened the first set with a 6-2 lead. Jordyn Kondras got three aces in a row to take the score from 14-6 to 17-6.

The final set was more tightly contested, however. It was not until the score got into the high teens that the girls began to pull away. Their defensive play shined in the third set with the ladies providing great coverage defensively. The Pioneers won the third set 25-17 to secure the win.

"Teamwork and determination are what won the match for us," said Katelyn Reed. "We wanted to get the season off to a good start."

The girls' next match is against Solanco, who is 0-1 going into their match tonight against Penn Manor.
