Although the George Rogers Clark girls volleyball team won one game in five tries last weekend, the Lady Cardinals progressed as a team in the KBA¿Tournament in Lexington.
Clark lost to Woodford (2-0), Casey County (2-1), defeated Western Hills (2-0), followed by losses to Raceland (2-0) and Pike County Central (2-1).
“We always like to go there and play some of the best competition in the state,” Clark coach Robyn Curry said. “You don’t get any better playing teams that aren’t the best.”
Curry said her team “did some good things” and added that the tournament proved to be a learning experience for her team.
“We learned what we need to work on as a team,” she said. “We need to consistently pass the ball to our setter. We have the top hitters in the region in my opinion we just need to be able to get them the sets.”
Curry also singled out the play of Maddie Hamlin, Brittani Gay and Amy Kao in the two-day event.
“Maddie Hamlin came up big for us when we used her in the back row defensively when no other passers were stepping up — she is such a good athlete,” she said. “Brittani Gay also played great defensive games as well for us. Amy Kao also played consistent for us — she works so hard and is every coaches dream with her dedication and heart.”
Next game: Today, 7:30 p.m. at Montgomery County.
