Volleyball team edges Robertson Co.,
loses a close match at Brossart
The Harrison County volleyball team eased past district rival Robertson County Thursday night in a straight set win 25-11, 25-22, 25-18. The 3-0 win was due to a good display of passing, setting and ball handling, according to Coach Bill Faulkner.  
“Robertson County has a nice team with some good size and we had to play well to beat them in straight sets,” he noted. “It is always important to win the district matches.”  
Harrison County improved to 18-7 with the win while Robertson County’s loss left them with a 19-7 record which is the most wins in the region.  
Tuesday night the Fillies traveled to Alexandria to face the always-tough Bishop Brossart Lady Mustangs.  The Fillies gave an indication of how much they have improved this year by surprising the home team with a 25-22 first set victory.  
“We played well the first set,” said Faulkner. “But our ball handling went south on us after that.”  
The Lady Mustangs rallied for a 25-17, 25-7, 25-17 four set win to improve their record to 16-12 for the season while the Fillies fell to 18-8.  
“Jordan (Doram) had 14 kills and six blocks for the night,” noted Faulkner. “Sydney Motell passed well and Sara Tanner had eight service aces for some bright spots for us.”  
The Fillies host Fleming County’s Lady Panthers (9-11) on Wednesday on the Hilltop before playing host to the Fillies Fall Fling on Saturday.

Mallory Lovell shot a round of 77 to lead the Scott County Lady Cardinals to the team win. Mason County’s Lauren Vice was second with an 80.
“All of the girls played well,” said Coach Jason Crisp. “We are very young and continued to improve throughout the year.”
