After opening their week with a 3-1 win over former district rival Coffee County, the roles were reversed when the Warriorette volleyball team hosted Rhea County, on Tuesday.
The visiting Lady Eagles in the first meeting between the two teams defeated the Warriorettes 3-0.
On Monday night, the Warriorettes picked up a 3-1 (25-17,25-23,22-25, and 27-25) win over the Lady Raiders. Lauren Turner led the Warriorettes in kills, with eight and blocks with nine. Hannah Kate Sims also had a good night, on Monday, finishing with seven kills and six blocks.
On Tuesday night, the first game of the match was a see-saw affair, but the Lady Eagles held off the Warriorettes for the 25-21 win. The game was tied at 21, but the Lady Eagles scored four straight points to take the 25-21 win.
Things didn’t go so well for the Warriorettes in game two. The Warriorettes tied the game up at 7-7, but four straight points by Rhea County would give them control, and the Warriorettes could never get any closer the rest of the way and the Golden Eagles took a 2-0 lead with the 25-12 win.
In game three, the Warriorettes and Rhea County would battle back and forth for most of the match. The Warriorettes would lead the Lady Eagles 15-14 during the game, but five straight points by Rhea County would give them the 16-19 lead. They would end up taking the set and match by a final score of 25-17.
The Warriorettes now sit at 3-6 on the season, and 0-3 in District play. The Warriorettes will return to action on Thursday when they travel to Warren County. Game time is set for 6 p.m.
