The Logan County High School volleyball team has been nothing short of dominant in District 13 over the course of the program. And that was clearly illustrated on Tuesday when the Lady Cougars commemorated their 100th consecutive district victory by easily dispatching Franklin-Simpson (25-8, 25-12, 25-4).

Junior Kerra Cornist led the Lady Cougars in attacking with 11 kills and four blocks. Senior Catherine Miller had a team-high five aces. Senior Kailee Moore finished with six of her team’s 18 digs and sophomore Karrah Cron had a team-high 24 assists.

Logan County (6-1) is having a typically great season so far this year. The Lady Cougars opened their schedule with five straight victories before falling to arch-rival Greenwood last week.

The Lady Cougars will be back in action over the weekend as they play in the Queens of the Court tournament hosted by Central Hardin High School.
