In the final game of the two-day OVA tournament, Men's Volleyball stormed back for a thrilling victory over Miami Palmetto which included a marathon third set. Palmetto took control quickly with a 25-14 victory in game one but the Panthers (4-5) rallied for a 26-24 win in game two to tie the match at a game apiece. In the deciding third game, DP outlasted Palmetto for a 27-25 victory led by Richie Diedrich (16 kills, six digs), Ladarius Tuggerson (five kills), Sam Barnett (six kills) and Noah Sullivan (21 digs). DP fell in the opening game Friday against Cardinal Gibbons, 18-25, 19-25 but bounced back in the nightcap with a three-game victory over Tampa Berkeley Prep, 24-26, 27-25, 17-15. Richie Diedrich led the way with 14 kills and ten digs while Blake Inlow totaled 24 assists and Noah Sullivan 13 digs. The Panthers finished the weekend with a 2-3 record and will host Wekiva Tuesday night as they look to improve to 2-0 in the Metro West Conference.
