South rolls past North again

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SOUTH LAUREL — The South Laurel Lady Cardinal volleyball team continued their dominance against their cross-town rivals by defeating the North Laurel Lady Jaguars, 22-25, 25-8, 25-22 and 25-15.

Despite seeing North Laurel jump out to the first set win and needing only two more sets to defeat the Lady Cardinals for the first time in school history, Fawn Greer’s squad settled down and captured the final three sets to improve to 4-1 on the season.

“I was really happy with our passing, but it wasn’t up to par in the first game,” Greer said.

Even though North Laurel (6-6) won the first set, 25-22, North Laurel coach Ali Ray still had concerns heading into the second set.

“I think we got too overhyped after that and then we could never recover,” Ray admitted. “We couldn’t pass the ball. We’re always ready against South Laurel, but we just couldn’t get the job done.”

Greer said she felt good about South Laurel’s chances of winning coming into the contest even though the Lady Cardinals might feel a little pressure of keeping their win streak alive against North Laurel.

“I’m confident when we come into the game, but in the back of my mind, I know we still have to work hard,” she admitted. “With some teams, when one person gets down, everyone gets down, but I’ve told my girls that when someone gets down to pick them up and we do a good job of doing that.”
