The Lady Pirates rallied back from a 0-2 deficit against the North Harrison Lady Cougars in a classic MSC showdown last night. The Lady Pirates (now 5-5; MSC 3-2) came back to win three consecutive matches (18-25, 25-27, 25-19, 25-23, 15-11) after falling behind 0-2.
“I’m really proud of my program tonight. Both the JV and Varsity were very close matches against a good North Harrison team. I found out tonight that my starting middle was going to be out for a while due to a knee injury, so I had to switch some players around but the whole team worked hard and really stepped up! Every set was close and hard fought by both teams. It was good to see my team’s resilience after being down two sets and fighting their way back. Kayleigh Smith stepped up and covered the middle for us tonight and contributed six kills. Junior, Savannah Spencer played the best game I have ever seen her play and led the offense with 13 kills. Kyra Sharp had 9 kills and 5 service aces. My primary passers, Savannah McClellan, Kyra Sharp, Peyton Crace and Abbi East did their job when we really needed them to. We need to carry this momentum into our tournament this weekend at Crawford Co.” said Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll after the very impressive Pirate victory.
The Lady Pirates are back in action this weekend as they have a tournament at Crawford Co.
Coach Tammy Nuxoll had this to say about the match: “We started out strong against Shaw with strong serving from Savannah McClellan and had a 17-7 lead but got stuck in a rotation and let them score 13 points in a row. We just cannot do that against any opponent. We we able to hang on with Kayleigh Smith scored some big points at the end of the set to allow us to win 27-25. We played a little better each set and were able to put things away in the third set. Lanae’ Crowe did a nice job mixing up the sets and ended the night with 27 assists. Kayleigh Smith and Savannah McClellan had 8 kills each and Kyra Sharp had seven kills. Abbi East had a good nice passing to help the offense. Savannah McClellan had a great night serving and ended up breaking a school record with 9 aces on the night. The previous record was set in 2016 by Amelia McCoy who had 7 aces in one match. We need to increase our focus for a tough conference matchup tomorrow night against North Harrison.”
