Corbin grabs third in Lady Rocket Invitational

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

ROCKCASTLE COUNTY – The Corbin Lady Redhounds have rarely struggled this season, sitting at 22-4 and riding a 13 match win streak heading into the Lady Rocket Invitational this past weekend.

After dropping 3-of-5 matches for the tournament, two of which came thanks to 12th region power Wayne County, the Lady Redhounds brought home a third place finish and an experience that Corbin coach Liberty Roberts said would go a long way for her team.

“Overall, it was a tougher weekend because it’s been a while since we’ve played teams like Wayne and Russell County,” Roberts said. “They both have really good solid records and they are very competitive.

“It was a good thing for us, but it was a little bit discouraging for the girls I think to lose those two matches to Wayne County,” she said.

Like every other team across the state, the Lady Redhounds are making final tuneups as the postseason approaches. Roberts said the opportunity to see the level of competition her team saw couldn’t have come at a better time for her team.

“I think it really was perfect timing for us,” she said. “Leading us up to district and region play and beyond that should we advance, I feel like Wayne and Russell County are the type of teams we are going to see if we’re able to advance to the state level.

“They both play at such a consistent level and they are very similar to Allen Central, which is who we faced at the state level last year,” she aded. “So, I was proud of the way we hung in there, but it definitley emphasized our weaknesses and stuff we need to work on.”

With her team set to close out the regular season this week, Roberts said it will be business as usual for the Lady Redhounds as they try to work out a few kinks before trying to defend the 13th Region crown they claimed last season.

“We have oone more home match on Tuesday and the girls really want to win that one,” Roberts said. “That would complete the season unbeaten at home for the first time ever.”
