The Cougars splashed the volleyball through the defense of Berkeley Springs creating a kaleidoscope of three straight sets forming a match victory in Baker last Tuesday by the scores of 25-16, 25-20, 25-17.
“We came out and battled. When you are down a couple of kids, it is always a challenge to try a new rotation out and our girls did a good job of adapting to it. We basically gutted out a win here. That is a scrappy team we just played. We knew they had a couple good players including a freshman middle hitter who really stepped up since we last played them,” East Hardy assistant coach Chris Hahn stated.
“Hopefully things can stay consistent and keep going the way they are going for us. I wouldn’t say we are hitting on all cylinders, but we are tuning the car in pretty good right now. We will see how things hold up barring injuries. The effort is there and they are putting the work in at the gym during practice and it is translating out here on the court during the match. We play some good competition. You either get better or get smacked pretty good. I am proud of these girls, they are coming around nicely.”
The Cougars hosted Union on Tuesday evening and will return to action next week.
