The Harrison County Volleyball Fillies won an easy home victory over Madison Southern’s Eagles, 25-6 and 25-10, on Thursday evening.  
“We played well,” briefly stated Coach Bill Faulkner.  “The girls are continuing to improve on their passing and setting the ball for some kills.”  
Junior Jordan Doram had nine kills to lead the Fillies with fellow juniors Samantha Adkins and Ellie McLaren chipping in with four kills each.  
Senior setter Alyssa Campbell had a nice game with 18 assists.
The win makes the Fillies 3-2 for the season while the Lady Eagles dropped to 1-3.  
The Fillies junior varsity also won two straight for their second straight triumph.  
The freshman Fillies lost in three sets.
Tuesday evening the Fillies traveled to Winchester to meet region rival George Rogers Clark.  
The night was started off on the right foot as the Fillies freshman team took two of three from the first year Cardinals to win the match.  
The junior varsity was next to do battle, but that didn’t turn out as well as the Harrison County squad dropped two straight sets to the Lady Cards to go down to defeat.  
The loss ended a two-match winning streak for the junior varsity girls.
The varsity match started slowly for Harrison County as the Lady Cards roared out to a first set victory.  
The Fillies bounced back however to win both the second and third sets only needing to win one more for the match.  
The Fillies took an early lead in the fourth and appeared to be on the way to the win but couldn’t finish as George Rogers Clark came back with some real solid play to take the fourth and fifth sets to win the match three sets to two.  
The loss evens the Fillies’ record at 3-3 with the next three matches on the road.  
The Harrison County girls head to Fleming County on Thursday for a match followed by the Dink Scott Memorial Tournament this weekend at Montgomery County.  
The Fillies then head north to always tough Boone County next Tuesday before finally returning home on Aug. 30 to host Lexington Christian.
