WCHS volleyball falls to Lafayette, 3-1
The Woodford County High School Volleyball team lost 3-1 to Lafayette Tuesday, Sept. 18. The Lady Jackets had a terrific start to the match but failed to match the Lady Generals in the final three sets. "The girls relaxed tonight and then could not recover from it," said WCHS Coach Meghan Bottom. "Until they realize that winning one set is not enough, this will continue to happen. We did a lot of standing around instead of aggressively getting to the ball. Tomorrow we will start from scratch. The girls will compete in practice and whatever six girls want to start, they will show it in practice." In the first set, The Lady Jackets jumped out to a 12-6 lead on some scrappy play that featured diving for balls, chasing balls out of bounds and into the bench. Woodford took the first set, 25-21. The Lady Generals rebounded by dominating the net in the second set. The Lady Jackets did not have an answer for the thunderous spikes from Lafayette and lost 25-15. In the third set, the Lady Generals took a 7-1 lead before Woodford fought back and evened the score at 12-12. Lafayette would win 13 out of the next 17 points and win the set, 25-16. In the final set, the Lady Generals took control and kept the Lady Jackets on the run. Lafayette took the final set, 25-14. The Lady Jackets beat Frankfort 3-0 (25-23, 25-8, 25-12) Sept. 13 to improve to 5-0 in district play. A night earlier, Woodford lost to Tates Creek 3-0 (25-14, 25-15, 25-20) at home’ “Right now we are focusing on the next game and we aren’t focused enough to think about down the road in the postseason,” said Bottom.
