GADSDEN, Ala. — Pearl River was able to pick up a big road victory at Gadsden State on Monday, winning 3-1 (18-25, 25-19, 25-16, 25-18).

“Tonight’s win was the result of a victory mindset,” head coach Haley Chatham said. “They have the talent and the tools. When they combine those things with belief in each other, they do great things.”
