On Monday evening, September 18, the Junior Varsity (JV) and Varsity girls’ volleyball teams headed to Lexington for a match-up with the Rockbridge County Wildcats. JV stepped up to the court first at 5:30 p.m. to take on their opponent in white.
The Lady Cougars showed no mercy. Blow after blow, they proved themselves superior to their competition, taking down the Wildcats quickly and forcefully. In Head Coach Kelsey Young’s last interview with the Virginian Review, she stated that her method of coaching involved teaching the girls that, “as long as you can shut them down in the beginning, you’re good to go.”
Two up, two down. The Lady Cougars got an early lead in both sets and held on to it, slowly extending their lead as the game progressed. This win clenched their longstanding —and spotless—winning streak. Now hanging on to an impressive 15-0 undefeated streak, it looks like the sky’s the limit for these student athletes. Up next, they will play Glenvar at 5:30 p.m. at Clifton Academy on Thursday, September 21st to see if they can continue to clutch onto their winning streak. However, it appears as though these ladies are unstoppable!
Immediately following the JV game, the Varsity girls stepped up at 7 p.m. to take on the Rockbridge County Wildcats. Though their sets were unsuccessful with bringing home a win for the Varsity Lady Cougars, they fought hard and played a solid game against a tough opponent. Even with the tough loss, the Alleghany Varsity Cougars volleyball team hangs on to an impressive 12-3 record this season. Their next match-up will also be against Glenvar at Clifton Academy, though they will face-off at 7 p.m. immediately following the JV game.
