Volleyball team wraps up busy week
The Woodford County High School volleyball team was on the road this week, playing a pair of away games, and followed that up with tournament action in Louisville. The Jackets defeated Nelson County 3-2 (16-25, 25-21, 15-25, 25-21, 15-4) on Aug. 23. The next night in Frankfort, the Jackets were victorious again 3-0 (25-9, 25-5, 25-3). "The team did a better job serving aggressively and consistently which made the difference in the last two matches," said Coach Meghan Bottom. "The younger players are still learning how to lead on the court but are making strides in the correct direction." On Saturday, Aug. 26, the Jackets played four matches at the "First Spike" tournament in Louisville. The Jackets went 3-2 on the day. "Tournaments offer the best opportunity to maximize individual and team growth due to the repetition players get throughout the day," said Bottom. "With that in mind, the overall goal of the tournament is continual growth concerning individual skills and understanding as well as team dynamics throughout the day." The Lady Jackets will host Franklin County in a district showdown on Friday, Sept. 1, at 7:30 p.m.
