    In an important district match-up, the Lady Panthers volleyball team fell short, losing 3-0 (15-25, 23-25, 20-25) to border rival Gallatin County Sept. 24, at home. The Lady Panthers had 17 attack errors compared to 13 kills and 27 dig errors compared to 63 digs.

    The best thing the Lady Panthers can do after their loss to Grant County is forget about it and move on. That was the message head coach Lynn Eaglin gave her team following their 2-0 loss Wednesday, Sept. 23. The Lady Braves (18-6) won the match by a commanding margin, 25-7, 25-7.

    “Offensively, we gave them too many free balls and opportunities to be aggressive at the net,” Eaglin said. “Those two big girls [Michelle Baker and Maddie Morgan] were all over the place.”

    Returning home after a 10-0 win over Henry County the night before, the Panthers looked a little tired. But head coach Ben Crutcher said he was really pleased overall, noting that the team showed improvement and is still adjusting to the width of the new field and the speed of play.
