Fleming Co. 3,
East Carter 0
In the second match of the night, Fleming County had no plans of taking their foot off the gas after building the 2-0 lead as they cruised to the 3-0 victory.
“We really hustled all night,” Fleming County coach Angela Humphries said. “You could not ask for them to hustle any more than they did tonight. We just played well tonight and everything was clicking.”
While Fleming County (15-17) was chasing down every loose ball in sight, East Carter couldn’t seem to muster enough energy to put up a sustained fight.
“We did not play with any energy,” Lady Raiders coach Cathy Harris said. “We didn’t play like we wanted to win tonight.”
The Lady Panthers didn’t just dominate the hustle plays, they dominated the net as well thanks, in large part, to Samantha Humphries, who finished with 10 kills and six blocks.
“I thought we dominated the net,” Humphries said. “When (Samantha) is aggressive at the net it intimidates the other team and they start to shy away from the net.”
Whitney Gollihue led East Carter with 10 kills on the night.
East Carter finished the season with a 14-13 record.
