The Lady Raider volleyball team worked their way to a hard fought 3 and 1 record on Thursday in their own scrimmage play day at the Joe Frank Patch Gym. The Lady Raiders, coming off a District 8AAA championship last year, opened the day with a 2 set win over district rival Tullahoma. Coffee County won the match 25-12 and 25-22. The lone loss came in the noon match with Warren County as the Lady Raiders dropped a hard fought 25-22 & 26-24 straight set decision. Coffee County rebounded to close the day out with a pair of sweeps against Fayetteville(25-11 & 25-12) and Grundy County(25-22 & 25-21). The Lady Raiders, who graduated 8 seniors that provided most of the minutes last year, will host their annual Alumni game on Friday, July 31st before traveling to another play day on August 1st in Chattanooga. Coffee County will open the regular season on August 18th at home as they host Shelbyville.
