It was a one-sided victory for the Lady Cats last night at ECHS as they took care of the Lady Hornets of Hancock County 2-0. Edmonson County was in control from the first serve at set one, to the final point of set two.
The Lady Cats began the first set with a 5-1 lead that caused Hancock to take their first timeout. Unfortunately for Hancock County, the four point deficit was as close as they would come as dominating runs of 7 points and two-5 point runs allowed the Lady Cats to win the first set handily, 25-10.
The second set was much of the same as the Lady Cats were once again able to control the pace of the game with numerous runs that Hancock County had no answers for. ECHS finished the set with a 7-0 run, 25-11, winning the game 2-0.
Edmonson County now has their eye on top seeding in both the upcoming District 12 and Region 3 tournaments. If things progress as they have all season, it looks as if top seeding will come down to the Lady Cats and their cross-county foes, Grayson County, who currently has a slight edge in the standings.
The Lady Cats improve to 20-9 on the season and will now enjoy Fall Break. They won't play again until Monday, October 12th at home against Caverna.
