Lady Jackets lose to West Jessamine
On Tuesday night, the West Jessamine Colts defeated the Woodford County High School volleyball squad 3-0 at "The Hive." The Colts looked sharp out of the gate, winning the first six points of the first set and sparking a timeout by Coach Meghan Bottom. Early on, the Colts had an answer for every move the Jackets made. The Colts won the first set 25-12. "We were scrappy out there," said Bottom. "We were a little rattled early on. That is all part of growing up and figuring out who we are. Luckily, it's early in the season, and I'd rather have the girls learn this lesson now instead of two months from now." In the second set, the Lady Jackets were once again stifled by the Colts offensive attack. The Colts went on runs of five and six straight points. West Jessamine won the second set 25-12. "At times we showed fight and had some energy, but then we went back to letting West Jessamine dictate the match," said Bottom. "We will have to be better with our blocking and communicating on the floor." In the third set, The Colts continued to be aggressive and kept the Lady Jackets on their heels. West Jessamine made numerous kills at the net that had the Jackets reeling and fighting to stay in the match. West Jessamine won the third and final set 25-11. The Lady Jackets will travel to Louisville this weekend to compete in the First Spike tournament.
