The Letcher County Central High School girls’ volleyball team headed into action this week with a record of 15 wins against only two losses on the season.
The Lady Cougars won three straight 3-set-to-0 matches last week over Betsy Layne (Aug. 30), Pike County Central (Aug. 28), and Wolfe County (Aug. 27). The team’s only two losses — both in 0-set-to-2 matches — came against Lexington Henry Clay and Campbell County on Aug. 24, the opening day of the Bluegrass Invitational
Volleyball Tournament at Lafayette High School in Lexington. The Lady Cavs bounced back to win four matches in the tourney’s second day, beating Christian County, Hopkinsville, and Boone County, each by 2 sets to 0, and Beechwood High School, by 2 sets to 1.
LCC’s 15-2 record leads the 14th Region. The Lady Cavs will host the region’s current No. 2 team, Jackson City, Sept. 5 (6:30 p.m.) and will visit Campton for a rematch with third-place Wolfe County Sept. 6 (6 p.m.).
