CLARKSVILLE – After not playing a match in exactly two weeks, Clarksville’s volleyball team got off to a slow start against GMG on Tuesday, Sept. 4.

However, once the Indians got a momentum shift in the third set, they overcame a two-set deficit to earn their first match win of the season in five, 19-25, 17-25, 25-14, 25-20, 15-9.

“It’s been a while,” Clarksville coach Brandon Zelle said. “With the holiday weekend, we did have practice (on Labor Day) but still, it took a while for us to wake up, but man, that was exciting.”
