The Woodford County High School Lady Jacket volleyball team has been on an up-and-down ride on the court recently. The team traveled to Bourbon County on Aug. 29 and won 2-0 (25-18, 25-22). "I felt like we had good energy for the match and that made a difference for us," said Coach Meghan Bottom. "We talk about this often, but consistency determines our fate." The following evening, the Lady Jackets hosted Washington County and were beaten 2-1 (25-20,26-28,25-19). Many long points were played in the three-set match. Seniors Lauren Smiley and Alex Gililland continue to shine on the court and set an example for the younger players. "Smiley gives her best every time out here," said Bottom. "Lauren does a bunch of little things to make you better. We have some things that we have to clean up if we are going to be successful but it's still early, and we can be much better." Rounding out the week for varsity was a great showing at home against rival Franklin County on Aug. 31. The Jackets won the match 3-0 (25-9, 25-11, 25-16). "Volleyball is a rollercoaster type of sport," said Bottom. "One minute you are up feeling good and the next minute it changes. I am hopeful that we can start gaining momentum into September and keep growing."
