GUYTON — The South Effingham Lady Mustangs beamed throughout their Region 2-AAAAA volleyball victory over New Hampstead on Thursday. Their grins got broader as the three-set match progressed. “We had to a few things around in the rotation today but I think the girls worked hard and pulled it out,” South Effingham coach Jennifer Cribbs said. The Lady Mustangs got stronger with each set, winning 25-16, 25-13 and 25-8. Billie Collins, Caroline Grayson, Anna Freeman, Katie Cartrette, Kayla Arnold and Ginger Vorel saw the bulk of the playing time. “They did a great job,” Cribbs said. “They were having fun, and it’s always a good day when they are having fun.” It wasn’t all smooth sailing for South Effingham. Middle hitter Kayla Morgan missed the game with a sprained ankle and likely won’t return for a couple of weeks. In addition, outside hitter Emily Schuman was out with knee trouble. “It’s been one thing after another,” Cribbs said. “I’m losing (players) quick but they are working their way back. We are trying to hang on for the region tournament.”
