    “What a turnaround, compared to the Sayre performance,” exclaimed Coach Nick Hill. “We had a great intensity tonight; you could see it in their eyes.”  
    That was Coach Hill’s first statement after the Thursday night 6-nil destruction of the Grant County Braves at the Athletic Complex.  
    The first score came with only 29 seconds played as after the Braves had the opening possession, the Breds quickly took the ball away and 13 to 14 passes later, the ball was in the net.

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team traveled north to Campbell County and was defeated by the Lady Camels in three straight sets, 10-25, 13-25 and 18-25.  
    According to Coach Bill Faulkner, the speed of the match was a problem for the Fillies.  
    “We were never able to get into our offense because they exploited us with their jump serves. We couldn’t get our block to the outside, which really hurt us,” Faulkner said.
    Jordan Doram had seven kills and four blocks in this match.
