Corbin picks up 10th win at home by defeating Jackson Co.

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds struggled through their first set against Jackson County Thursday, but battled back to sweep the Lady Generals by scores of 26-24, 25-18 and 25-17, improving to 19-4 on the season.

Redhounds’ coach Liberty Roberts said she was proud of the way her team fought off what she thought may have been some fatigue setting in.

“I felt like coming into the gym tonight, the girls were tired because we have played a lot of volleyball lately,” Roberts said. “When you take the tournaments into consideration, we’ve already played the equivalent of a full season.

“I do think we did a good job of toughing out that first set,” she added. “I thought it was going to be a long night and they just started playing great in the second and third sets.”

After squeaking by in the first set, Corbin fell behind early in the second set 3-1, but once they took a lead at 6-5, they never looked back.

The Lady Redhounds continued the trend of falling behind early, trailing until they were able to grab a 10-9 lead. Corbin was able to stretch the lead to 21-14 before the Lady Generals made a run, cutting the gap to 22-17.

Roberts and company proved to be too much as they pulled away for the 25-17 win, extending their home win streak to 10 straight matches.

Now with her team off until Monday’s showdown with Knox Central, Roberts said she will give them the weekend off to try and regroup.

“I think they may be kind of worn out due to how much we’ve played,” Roberts said. “I think they could use some time away and maybe see if they can regroup when we come back in to play Knox Central Monday.

“Hopefully we’ll come out and play well Monday, then we’ll have a little bit more time to get ready for some good competition the following week.”
