CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds may still be unbeaten after Tuesday’s 3-0 (25-23, 25-21 and 25-23) win over rival Whitley County, but head coach Liberty Roberts said her squad is far from perfect.

“Not by any means are we perfect and I keep trying to instill that in practice,” Roberts said. “You can’t just be happy with being this or any year.

“We can’t be good, we can’t be great, we have to be as close to the best as we can be every time out,” she added. “They’ve really bought into that mindset and they work hard every time they get on the floor.”

That mindset sent the Lady Redhounds to 6-0 on the season as they knocked off a Whitley County team that should be in the region title mix as the season winds down. The Lady Colonels move to 9-4, snapping a three-match win streak with the loss. Head coach David Halcomb said he felt like the match was a close one despite the 3-0 final.

“It’s disappointing to come in here and lose three games because I feel like we could’ve won one of them,” Halcomb said. “But you’ve got to give them credit. They play unlike any other team we’ve played all year and it took us the first two games to adjust.

“I’m proud of my kids because they never quit and that showed tonight,” Halcomb said. “I don’t think we did a good job passing and serve receive, but those are things that we can improve upon and that’s just what we’ll try to do.”

After falling behind 2-0, Corbin jumped out to a 6-1 lead and never let go of it from that point. The Lady Colonels were able to close the gap to one point on three occasions in the first set, but fell 25-23 in the end.

The second set was similar as the Lady Redhounds grabbed a 6-1 lead to get things going before Whitley County trimmed the gap to 6-5. Halcomb’s squad never got closer than two from that point on as they dropped the second set 25-21.

The starting point in the third set was again 6-1 as Whitley County seemed to wake up at that point, rallying to eventually take a 13-12 lead. Whitley County led by two on separate occasions, but the Lady Redhounds rallied from that point to go ahead 22-20.

The two teams traded points, but the Lady Colonels ran out of room as Corbin sealed the win 25-23.

Vanessa Wiseman led the way with 15 kills in the match as Hannah Norris notched eight kills of her own. Landry Jung tallied 31 assists for the Lady Redhounds.

Corbin’s next match will be against Lincoln County on the road Thursday, while the Lady Colonels will be off until Sept. 4 when they travel to Bell County.
