The Lady Raider volleyball team is not ready to give up their 2014 district crown just yet.   An incredible night at the net led the CHS volleyball team to a 4 set win over Lincoln County on Tuesday night in a huge district win at home for the Lady Raiders. Coach Andrew Taylor called the win the best match of the season for Coffee County as the Lady Raiders scored 50 kills and registered 13 blocks on his front line. In the back, the Lady Raiders got 67 digs and 36 assists to set up the front line offense. The Lady Raiders powered out to a 2 set lead winning the first 2 sets 25-20 and 25-22. The Lady Falcons clawed their way back into the match by winning the 3rd set 25-20 before Coffee County slammed the door in the 4th set with a 25 to 20 win.
Up front, Aerial Williams was the big star as she had 13 kills and 4 blocks on the night. Diana Davis added 9 kills while Kaylee Skipper added 8. Grace Spellings and Peyton Nicoll each had 4 blocks for Coffee County. On the back end, Davis and Maddie Taylor each had 13 digs while Nicoll added 12. Taylor had 18 assists and Nicoll added 17.

The Lady Raiders are back in action on Thursday night as they play host to district leading Columbia in the final regular season home game of the year. A straight set win for Coffee County would draw the Lady Raiders into a tie with Columbia. First serve is scheduled for 6:00 PM at the Joe Frank Patch Memorial Gym.
