Nothing about Tuesday night’s home match against Franklin County was easy for the Central High School Lady Raiders.

But they pulled through.

Coffee County fought from behind in the first two sets and pulled away in the fourth in a 3-1 win over the Rebelettes, a district match you heard live on Thunder Radio as part of the Capstar Bank Hometown Sports Series.
