STREAK ENDS: Lady Raider volleyball falls on the road, ending district winning streak

Gia Perez serves the ball for the Lady Raiders in a match against Shelbyville on Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2022.

To find the last time the Coffee County Central volleyball team lost a district match you would have to turn the calendar all the way back to 2019.

Until Thursday.

After rattling off 30 consecutive wins in district matches, the CHS Lady Raiders lost in straight sets at Lincoln County Thursday night, falling 16-25, 12-25 and 17-25.

“It was just an all around bad night,” said CHS head coach Andrew Taylor. “Poor serving and poor passing didn’t allow us to get any offense going.”
