Eight is Great

Lady Redhounds capture eighth home win in a row

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — Other than a rough outing this past weekend in tournament play, the Corbin Lady Redhounds have been on cruise control.

Liberty Roberts’ squad improved to 11-4 on the season with a 2-0 (25-15 and 25-17) win over Rockcastle County Thursday, extending the team’s home winning streak to eight matches dating back to Sept. 1 of 2011.

After the win, Roberts said the streak is something her team has talked about and takes a lot of pride in every time it takes the floor.

“We actually talked a little about the streak tonight and that is something they want to continue,” Roberts said. “They take a lot of pride in the fact that they haven’t lost a match here, so anything to motivate them is a good thing.”

Corbin jumped ahead early in the first set and never looked back, leading by nine points on two occasions before going on for the 25-15 win.

The second set wasn’t as easy for the the Lady Redhounds, losing the lead at one point before grabbing the win.

Corbin grabbed an 8-3 lead before the Lady Rockets turned the tables and rallied to gain a 13-12 lead. The Lady Redhounds scored five straight points to regain the lead, 17-13.

Rockcastle County tried to rally on several occasions, but Roberts and company were able to hold on to get the 25-17 win.

Roberts said she was pleased with the way her team responded to some adversity after losing the lead.

“We were able to battle back and not lose our focus, which is always a good thing,” she said. “It seems like every match we play, we seem to be improving in some aspect, which is always a plus.”

Corbin will be back in action today when they take part in the Lady Colonel First Priority Classic at Whitley County High School.
