Knox Central falls to Lady Generals

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LYNN CAMP — The Knox Central Lady Panthers saw their season come to an end Monday in the opening round of the 13th Region Tournament.

Barb Gregory’s squad fell to Jackson County 3-1 (15-25, 25-19, 12-25 and 12-25), but she said she was proud of her team for the progress they made throughout the year.

“We’ve had a long year, but the girls have improved quite a bit throughout the season,” she said. “I’m proud of them and what they’ve been able to do.”

The Lady Generals jumped out to an early lead, but Knox Central tied things up on several occasions before Jackson County was able to seal the 25-15 win.

Knox Central battled back in the second set to grab a 25-19 win, tying things up at one set apiece, but that would be as close as they could get to a victory.

Jackson County jumped out to a 9-4 lead in the third set and eventually cruised to the 25-12 win to take a 2-1 lead in the match.

Knox Central looked poised to tie things up in the early stages of the fourth set, grabbing a 3-0 lead to start things out, but it wasn’t to be.

The Lady Generals used a 14-4 run to gain a 14-7 lead and after that, the Lady Panthers were all but done. Knox Central was able to cut into the lead on several occasions, but Jackson County closed things out for a 25-12 win to end things.

After the win, Jackson County coach Lindsay Gasperic said she was happy with the win and looking forward to Wednesday’s match.

“It doesn’t really matter who you play in the postseason, you have to come out and take it game by game,” she said. “Every team is going to play their best and you have to do the same if you expect to win.

“Either of the two possible opponents will be a good match for us and we’ll just wait and see,” she added. “Hopefully we can come out and play well and see what happens.”

The Lady Generals will play Corbin after the Lady Redhounds knocked off Harlan in their opening match. Corbin beat Jackson County earlier in the season in three straight sets.

The winner of Wednesday's match will be in action Thursday night in the finals.
