Down 2-0 at home against Fernley, the Yerington volleyball team showed it still had some cards up its sleeve as the Lions recorded a season-high 33 service aces to win three straight games and defeat the Vaqueros 10-15, 14-16, 16-14, 15-5, 15-7.

“It’s the first time this season we’ve come back from two games down,” said Yerington coach Marci O’Neill. “We were hitting well and had incredible serving – Fernley just couldn’t return our serves.
