Lady Pirate Volleyball Opens with Hard Fought MSC Win
The Charlestown Lady Pirate Volleyball team (1-0 & 1-0 MSC) opened their 2018 season with a well earned and hard fought Mid-Southern Conference victory over the visiting Corydon Central Panthers (3-2) 25-21, 23-25, 25-20, 20-25, & 15-4. The Lady Pirate Junior Varsity team also outlasted their counterparts (2-1) 25-15, 22-25, & 15-10 in the evening opener.
“Tonight was a hard fought match between two MSC Conference teams. There was lots of good play on both sides of the net, and I’m proud of how this young team played together in their first match of the season. Our program lost 8 seniors and only returned one starter, so most of these players are new to varsity volleyball. Their composure in a five set match is promising and I’m glad to see how they stuck together and showed some excitement to get the win. This team shows a lot of potential and I’m looking forward to seeing what they can accomplish together. Preliminary stats show that freshman Kyra Sharp led the team in kills with 12 while Kayleigh Smith and Korea Tutt had 6 kills each. Lanae’ Crowe did a nice job setting for us. Peyton Crace contributed 7 kills and Abbi East led the serve reception. Savannah McClellan led the team with 6 aces and had 9 service points in the deciding set. We will work on a few adjustments in practice tomorrow before we play a tough Jeff High squad on Thursday”, summarized Lady Pirate Head Coach Tammy Nuxoll.
