The Harrison County Volleyball Fillies saw their season mark drop to 8-3 with back-to-back losses to Powell County on Thursday and Campbell County on Tuesday night.
Powell County (7-1) narrowly defeated the Fillies in each of the three sets winning 18-25, 23-25 and 19-25 in the hard-fought match played in Powell County.
“In each set we just couldn’t get a stop when we had to have one,” bemoaned Coach Bill Faulkner. “Powell County has a really nice team, but we were in each set with a chance to win and just didn’t do it.”
Campbell County brought a 3-6 record to the Hilltop on Tuesday, but the Lady Camels record does not indicate the type of team that they have this season.
The Fillies battled to a close score in the first set, losing 20-25, but the visitors eased away in the next two sets winning the second set 10-25 and the third 12-25 for the straight set win.
“We could have won the first set,” said Faulkner. “But, in the second and third we didn’t do a very good job blocking their left outside or their middles with their quicks and slides.”
Faulkner thought that his team served and handled the ball well but they just didn’t handle the constant pressure applied by the Lady Camels.
“Jordan (Doram) had several kills tonight,” noted Faulkner. “We will continue as a team to work hard and improve.”
The Fillies’ next match is Thursday on the Hilltop when they host the Lady Royals of Mason County. Coach Katie Mason’s squad is 2-1 so far this season.
Then next Tuesday, the Fillies travel to Montgomery County to face the undefeated Lady Indians.
