The Whitley County volleyball team put a stop to Lynn Camp’s three-game winning streak with a 25-23, 25-10 win Tuesday.
The win was the fifth of the season for the Lady Colonels and also gave them some much needed confidence according to coach Derrick Lowrie.
“We won the match and hopefully we can build on it,” he said. “But this was still one of those games where we were out of position.
“There were just too many mental mistakes for us to be making at this point of the season at the varsity level,” he added.
Whitley County handled a late scare in the first game after jumping out to a sizeable lead.
With the Lady Colonels ahead 24-23, Lynn Camp served with a chance to tie the game, but the serve went into the net, giving Whitley County the win.
Game two was another story as the Lady Colonels cruised to the win.
“I really felt like we eliminated some of those simple mistakes from the first game,” Lowrie said. “Those are the things you have to do to get better though.”
Brittany Dotson led the way for Whitley County with nine aces, one dig and one kill and at one time served 13 straight points for the Lady Colonels.
“I thought Brittany did a great job getting us an early lead,” Lowrie said. “From that point on we were able to keep them at a distance just because we got ahead early.”
Lowrie said the win was much more than a W in the win column for his team.
“What this does is put us in position where we can still be the top seed in the district tournament,” he said. “The way things may pan out is we beat Lynn camp twice and Corbin has beat Lynn Camp twice.
“I really believe we can beat them,” he added. “I think it would be an upset, but I think we can do it if we play the way we are supposed to.”
Both teams will be back in action today when Whitley County hosts Clay County and Lynn Camp travels to Redbird.
