The Knox Central Lady Panther Volleyball Team played host to the (5-6) Corbin Lady Redhounds on Thursday night. The Lady Panthers dropped their second straight game losing to Corbin (25-12, 25-15 and 25-8). Assistant Coach Becky Gregory said that her team has got to learn to pull together when they get down. Corbin went on long scoring runs that Knox Central was unable to defend. The Redhounds rolled off scoring runs of five in the first set, seven in the second set and nine in the third set. Assistant Coach Gregory said, “We have to learn to keep in the game mentally and adjust to hitters and tips.” Notable performers include Kelsey Engle with three attempts, Sadie Harris with three assists, Vinie Price with four digs, Kristen Smith with six digs and Paige Phipps with four digs. The Panthers will be back in action on Sep. 8 when they host a (3-4) Harlan team that just came off an All-A region championship.
