Lady Pirates Outlast Lady Rebels in Last Night’s Volleyball Matchup
The Charlestown Lady Pirates (3-4 & 2-1 MSC) earned a hard fought victory against the Southwestern Lady Rebels (6-4) 25-19, 13-25, 23-25, 25-16, 25-12.
“Tonight was a hard fought match between both schools. We came off two hard loses last week where we didn’t play our best, but I’m proud that the girls were able to regroup and play together tonight as a team. We played consistent the first match, but had trouble in the second when Southwestern started running their middle. The third set was a hard fought battle. We played well, but just had a few off plays at the end. Despite the close loss, it was good to see the girls not give up and play even harder to win the fourth. The final set we had a 5-0 lead, but let them creep back to 12-13. It was good to see us hang on to the finish. I cannot say enough good things about our passing tonight. Our primary passers: Savannah McClellan, Kyra Sharp, Abbi East, Peyton Crace and Kayleigh Smith stepped it up tonight which was a key to our success. All of the hitters had positive hitting percentages. Kyra Sharp led in kills with 11 and Korea Tutt was a close second with 10 kills and also had 3 blocks. Kayleigh Smith also contributed 8 kills. Southwestern always has a strong team so this was a good win for us. We will work to carry our positive start this week into our away match against Silver Creek on Thursday“, reported Lady Pirate Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll. The Lady Pirates are back in action Thursday against rival school Silver Creek @ SC, with JV starting at 6.
The Junior Varsity Lady Pirates had a tough loss (4-2) 10-25, 20-25 in their home match-up.
