The Lady Bears Volleyball team had a good showing over the weekend at a tournament in Louisville, going 3-2 as they continue to prepare for the postseason.

Coach Tim Elder said it was an exhausting day with five matches, but winning three of them left the team “feeling like we had made some big improvements.”

The girls opened with a match against Washington County, winning the first game 25-18, then dropping the second one 21-25. In the deciding game, the girls rallied to take a 25-23 victory.

That win placed them against Fern Creek. Elder admitted his girls did not play well in that match, dropping two games (25-10 and 25-14), but said Fern Creek is a very good squad who made few errors.

Spencer County was then matched up with host Seneca, and dropped the first game 25-18. The girls then came back to score an easy 25-10 win in the second game, and secured the match with a 25-23 win in the third.

That win advanced Spencer County to a bracket with Louisville Brown. They lost the first game 25-18, but came back with two strong showings in the second game, winning 25-22 and the final game, winning 25-19 to take a 3-1 record against Scott High.

Elder said Scott High is a very good team that he said is talented enough to make the state tournament. The Lady Bears lost that match 2 games to none, losing 25-10 and 25-17.

Spencer County now stands 8-17 on the season. They were slated to be on the road at Collins on Tuesday, at home against Bardstown on Wednesday and home again on Thursday against North Bullitt. Their final home game will be Monday night when they host Bullitt East.
