Lady Lions Volleyball – August 18, 2021

Here is the write up from Nan Scanlan, Head Volleyball Coach:

The Rushville Lady Lions traveled to Tri High to take on the Lady Titans Wednesday night in a 5 set thriller. The Lady Lions took the first two sets winning 25-20 & 25-20. Olivia Yager had 11 out of 14 of her service points in the first two sets. Olivia and Audrey Angle both had 5 kills a piece in the first two sets. The Lady Titans came storming back in the 3rd set and never looked back. They won the last 3 sets 24-26, 19-25, & 10-15. The Lady Lions JV Team lost to the Lady Titans 22-25 & 18-25.

Comments from coach Nan Scanlan: We have players that have never been in these types of situations before so it is a learning process.  Right now it is not about the wins and losses, it is about the work they put in and to keep moving forward. They just have to keep working hard and the rest will come.
