Lady Colonels win in three sets

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

MIDDLESBORO — The Whitley County Lady Colonels picked up another road win Tuesday, knocking off Middlesboro in three sets by scores of 25-9, 25-15 and 25-15.

The win is the Lady Colonels’ 19th of the season as they improved to 19-5 on the season.

After the win, Whitley County head coach David Halcomb said he felt like his kids played well.

“I thought our kids came out and played well and did the things we wanted to do,” Halcomb said. “We’ve play a lot of volleyball in the last few days and we’ve had to keep the girls from getting worn out.

“We got to play a lot of kids the last few days and that’s always a good thing,” he added. “We’ve worked on some plays that we wouldn’t have had a chance to work on otherwise.”

Next up for Whitley County is a border rival match against Jellico, Tenn. The Lady Colonels have beaten them three times this season already, but Halcomb said he expects a tough match come Thursday.

“We’ve played them three times now and every time they have played a little bit better against us,” he said., “You know they’re going to want to come across the border and get a win against us on our home floor, so I expect them to be ready to play.”

If the Lady Colonels can get the win Thursday, they’ll move to within one win of tying the school record for victories at 21.
