The Lady Cougars, coming off a loss in the Purples Classic finals against Whitefield Academy, was looking for a little redemption. A chance to knock off perennial power Greenwood and stay unbeaten in regional play was a great motivational force for the Cougars. There would only be one undefeated region team leaving the building that night and unfortunately it was not the Lady Cougars. Logan County lost 0-2 (13-25, 13-25).
“They got two really good players and it’s really hard to stop them,” LCHS head coach Steven Lyne said. “They are going to be tough to beat in the tournament, but we can work on some timing on our blocking issues and we’ll be fine.”
The Lady Gators sprinted out to leads in both games and never looked back. The Lady Cougars will look to get back on track and snap their first ever two match losing streak tonight at the JCPS tournament in Louisville.
The Lady Panthers after a first round exit in the Purples Classic tournament over the weekend were looking to exact a measure of revenge. The Lady Blazers of University Heights were their first victims. The Lady Panthers won the match 2-0 (25-15, 25-16). Then it was the Lady Scotties of Glasgow. The Panthers tallied another victory 2-0 (25-17, 25-16) and are looking to keep the roll going Monday when they host the Lady Dragons of Warren Central and make it three in a row. Perhaps they have found that groove they’ve been searching for all season. If ever there was a time for the Lady Panthers to find their stride its now with the district and regional tournament looming on the horizon.
