After a short break, the Lady Raiders squared off against an impressive Riverside Christian squad. Coffee County never trailed in a 2 set win grabbing the victory by set scores of 25-16 and 25-19. The Lady Raiders closed out the day with a hard fought loss to Lawrence County. The Lady Cats took the match 24-26 and 19-25.
“I thought we took a step forward today. We played more consistent” said Lady Raider coach Andrew Taylor. He went on to say, “The girls did a good job with their service game. We played everyone that dressed and all the girls had and some good moments. I thought Keelie Hillis, Kiya Ferrell, and Maddie Husted really played well. We have to improve on our defensive slides and serve receive.”
