A week of mixed results was in the cards for the Seymour High School volleyball team last week as the Lady Eagles sparkled in a home win over Clinton (23-25, 25-18, 25-18, 25-14) but fell short a couple nights earlier in a match with a strong South-Doyle club.
The Clinton win and the South-Doyle loss left Seymour with a 4-4 overall mark.
After a slow start, Lady Eagles’ head coach Ed Irvin was encouraged with the way his girls played in front of the home crowd against the Clinton Lady Dragons.
After dropping a close first game, the Lady Eagles got on a roll in the second game and pulled away to even the win total at 1-1. Seymour fed off its momentum from the second game and posted a third-game win by an identical score as the second game. In the fourth game, Seymour’s Courtney Ervin found her serving groove and notched 13 straight points for the home team. Following a six-point run by the feisty Clinton squad, the Lady Eagles re-gained momentum and cruised to a 25-14 win, clinching the match in the process.
“It was our first match in front of our home crowd and we played tentative at the first of the game,” Irvin remarked. “The teams went back and forth with quite a few lead changes but it was nice to see our girls rise to the challenge and get the win in front of the home crowd.”... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
