Needing to close the gap from “almost there” to “there” has been the focus of Coach Andrew Taylor with his CHS Lady Raider volleyball team. Tuesday night they welcomed district foe Lawrence County to “The Patch”. The pesky Lady Wildcats gave Coffee County a scare before the Lady Raiders prevailed in 5 sets. The Lady Raiders were able to work their offense effectively as they scored 42 aces on the match off of 33 assists. At the service line, Coffee County had 19 aces with 15 service errors on the match. Defensively, Coffee County was credited with 3 blocks and 46 digs.
Leaders for Coffee County in aces was Tyanna Fenton as she scored 8 aces. Diana Davis had 11 kills and 12 digs to lead in both of those categories. Fenton added 11 digs while Maddie Taylor had 8 digs and led the team in assists with 22. Logan Carr, Aerial Williams and Grace Spellings each had a block for the Lady Raiders while Peyton Nicoll and Kaylee Skipper joined Williams with 7 kills apiece. The Lady Raiders travel to Eagleville on Wednesday for an “In-School” game before the Eagleville student body. First serve is set for 1:30 PM.
