Lady Mules Win Three On The Road, Move To 22-1

With three straight road wins this week, Chet Snyder’s Fairfield Lady Mules have already eclipsed the 20-win mark, and have run their win streak to 13 straight.

Aces

Fairfield traveled to Mt. Carmel Monday for nonconference action against the former NEC rival Aces. Mt. Carmel caught them sleeping in the first set and sprung a 25-20 win on them. Fairfield rallied to take the next two sets, however, 25-16, 25-21, to keep the streak alive.

Fairfield let an 8-4 lead slip away in the first set. In the second, they jumped out to a 16-6 lead and did not let that one get away. The third set was tied at 13 before Fairfield finished them off with a 12-8 run.

Bulldogs

On Tuesday, Fairfield picked up a road BDC win against Carmi-White County, 25-18, 25-18, in a battle of two teams win 15 or more wins. The loss was the second in conference play for Carmi, while Fairfield remained undefeated in the BDC-East.

Lions

The Mule gals made the short road trip to Albion Thursday to face the rival Edwards County Lions. For the past several seasons, it has been the rivalry that has decided the BDC-East. The Lions took the opening set on their home floor, 25-23. Fairfield nearly saw the streak end in the second set, but rallied for a 26-24 win. Deflated with the lost opportunity, the Lions were overpowered by Fairfield in the third, set, 25-10.

20 Plus

Fairfield improved to 22-1 overall, 5-0 in the BDC-East. In Snyder’s 16 seasons, Fairfield has won 20 or more in 13.

The Lady Mules will play their fourth straight road match Tuesday at Johnston City. They return home Thursday to host Hamilton County.
