Coming off a five-set victory over Harrison County Tuesday night, The George Rogers Clark High¿School volleyball team couldn’t keep the streak going Wednesday night.
The Lady Cardinals suffered a 3-0 loss at Franklin County. The Lady Flyers won the first game 25-13, followed by a 25-16 victory in the second set. Franklin Completed the sweep with a 28-16 victory in the final game.
“It was a tough night,” George Rogers Clark coach Robyn Curry said. “I’m not sure if we were worn out from (Tuesday’s) game versus Harrison or what, but we didn’t come to play and that is tough as a coach. I¿tried to get them going and play with energy, but not until the last few points of the third set did we do that and then it was too late. We beat ourselves, which makes losing that much harder.”
Curry also was disappointed in her team’s defense.
“(Our) passing hurt us tonight,” she said. “We didn’t play smart defense and we were out of position all night.”
Kyndal Curry had five aces, while Amy Kao had two. Sandra Skinner followed with three blocks and 10 kills. Sydney Wright added five kills and Maddie Hamlin followed with two.
Carrie Irvin paced Clark with 10 assists, while Kao added 18 good passes and seven errors. Kaylee Raymer and Seri Crawford combined for 10 passes and nine errors. Veronica Worsham had five good passes and one miscue.
Curry hopes the loss will pay dividends in the future.
“Hopefully it was a huge learning experience for this young team,” she said. “You have to come ready to play and can’t take plays off. We host Montgomery County (tonight) and we have to be ready to play.”
