North Laurel picks up road win over Knox Cen.

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

The North Laurel Lady Jaguars came into Tuesday’s match against Knox Central needing a win and that’s exactly what they got, cruising to a 3-0 win (25-17, 25-15 and 25-22).

After a rocky weekend in the McCreary County Invitational Tournament, head coach Ali Ray said the win was a welcomed one.

“This was a much needed victory for us confidence-wise after a pretty rough weekend tournament,” Ray said. “Of course, a win always feels good and a win on the road is a little tougher to get.

“I thought it was important for us to get back in the win column as we head into a match against a tough Jackson County team,” she added. “We lost in a scrimmage to them in the preseason, so it really should be a good match that I think our girls are going to want to win.”

As for her team, Ray said there were several areas where she saw improvement Tuesday, which was a good sign.

“I thought our serves were really good today,” she said. “Our passing needs a lot of work, so that’s something we need to continue to improve upon.”

Despite the small improvements though, Ray was none too pleased with the overall execution of her team and said things could get rough if the Lady Jags can’t turn the corner offensively.

“We have to start running some kind of offense,” she said. “Right now, we are just trying to get the ball back over the net and we have to get better as the season goes along.

“Hopefully we can improve with each match, but we’ll have to start Thursday with Jackson County,” she added.

Thursday’s match at Jackson County is scheduled for 6 p.m.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
