The Mathews High School volleyball team made it all the way to Saturday’s Group A, Division 1 championship game at VCU, before falling to the Nelson County Governors, 3-1.

To get to the state title game, Mathews first had to get by Rye Cove in the tournament semifinals on Friday. Mathews had little trouble with the Eagles, sweeping them in three straight sets by scores of 25-13, 25-21 and 25-12.

The Lady Devils came pumped and ready for anything that Rye Cove could throw at them. Mathews did especially well in passing, and everything else just seemed to fall into place.
