LANGDON, N.H. — The members of the Hanover High volleyball program can now say they understand both the ins and outs of the game.

The Marauders overcame a first-set loss Thursday afternoon and defeated host Fall Mountain in four sets, 25-23, 26-24, 25-12 and 25-22. The win came in the first outdoor volleyball match in New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association history. 

“With the differences between indoor and outdoor volleyball, this was a different kind of challenge for the girls,” said fourth-year Hanover coach Megan McFarland. “As a team, they looked more cohesive than ever and played as a real unit. All 10 players contributed to a real team win in a first-of-its-kind match.”
