CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

NORTH LAUREL — The North Laurel Lady Jaguars came oh, so close in capturing the Steak ’n Shake Tournament this past weekend, but fell in the championship game to McCreary Central, 21-16, 9-21, 10-15.

The Lady Jaguars (15-12) won the first set in the title game, but dropped two straight sets while being outscored 36-19 during the process. North Laurel posted a 2-1 record during the tournament, picking up wins over both Garrard County (12-21, 21-13 and 17-15) and Jackson County (21-18, 21-10).

North Laurel will try to get revenge from the championship game loss against the Lady Raiders in a road match Tuesday.
