JOHNSONBURG – St. Marys volleyball overcame a two-set deficit with wins in the last three in a 3-2 (17-25, 18-25, 25-22, 25-21, 15-12) victory over Johnsonburg Tuesday night at Johnsonburg Area High School.
St. Marys coach Erica Vogt said it was a nice comeback win for the Lady Dutch.
"We have two starters injured right now so we had to bring up a couple girls," Vogt said. "The way they played and the way the team came together was really nice to see."
Vogt said she was aided by the play of freshman Taylor Schutz who saw some time in the lineup due to the injuries.
