With the win, Greencastle improves their record to 1-2 on the season.  “We knew going into this week that this was going to be a tough first week,” said Blue Devil head coach Corry Eagler.  “Now we can head into next week with a lot more confidence,” Eagler said.

On the defensive side the Blue Devils were led by Gearhart and senior Madee Goodwin each with 11 digs.  Sophomore Kylie Cunningham recorded 9 digs while junior Brianne Lugar added another 6.

Up next for the Greencastle girls is a trip Tuesday to face Mechanicsburg.
