TALLMADGE — Facing a little bit of adversity in the form of a five-set volleyball match is nothing new this season for Revere.
Minutemen head coach Dana Cummins and her players have conquered situations like that multiple times, including Thursday when they topped host Tallmadge 16-25, 25-16, 25-14, 24-26, 16-14 in a Suburban League American Conference match at James O. Maddox Court.
The Blue Devils led the fifth set 10-5 before Revere rallied.
"We need to finish," said Tallmadge head coach Jim Maloof, whose team dropped to 7-4 overall and 4-4 in the conference. "It is that simple. You have to finish. Every one of these kids stepped up at a different time. As a team, we all stepped up and we all did what we needed to do at times, but you have to finish strong."
Dakota Drenth, a sophomore, totaled 50 assists, 17 digs and two service aces.
Revere’s leaders at the net were 6-foot sophomore Anna Freeman (24 kills), 5-11 senior Alanna Ramsey (21 kills) and 6-0 freshman Presley Baker (nine kills and three blocks).
Jackson is the only team to beat the Minutemen this season.
Senior Sydney Kirker led Tallmadge with 17 kills, nine service points and three aces. Sophomore Ellie Kirker and senior Amelia Perdue both had 19 assists, junior Kelsie Horner contributed 30 digs and 10 service points and senior Katie Seeker had two blocks.
