Last night the Lady Cats fell to top-rated district foe Whitesville-Trinity (21-4, 6-0) in a home match-up in four sets. While the game was notched as another loss for Edmonson County, the effort given by the Lady Cats was as good as EC fans have seen all season long.
After a rough start for Edmonson County, Trinity took the first set 25-22. Edmonson County responded with an intense second set, taking the Lady Raiders past 25, and winning 28-26. With starters Kaylee Lindsey who is nursing a sore ankle and Alyssa Doyle who has battled illness this week, Trinity took advantage of some big runs and outlasted the Lady Cats for the final two sets, 25-17 and 25-11.
Multiple team members said it was fun feeding off the positive energy from the fan section in Wildcat Alley, which was the largest group of student fans the gym has seen in a couple years.
Interim Head Coach Caitlin Caudill said some big blocks and timely digs kept the game close, but the girls seemed to run out of gas toward the end of the game.
"I am very proud of the fight the girls showed last night", Coach Caudill stated, "They proved last night that they can play with anyone. We have a few things we need to work on, but we will work over fall break and be ready to take on Muhlenberg County when we return."
The Lady Cats are scheduled to take on Muhlenberg at home on Monday, October 11th, at 5:30 pm. Edmonson County is 7-18 on the season and now 3-5 in district play.
