Tiffany McGuire slams a kill during Thursday’s battle with Russell.

    The Lady Raiders volleyball team is 7-7 on the season after winning two and losing one last week.

    On Tuesday, East beat Greenup County on the road, 2-0.

    East took the first set 25-15 and the second 25-12.

    “The girls played really well,” Coach Cathy Harris said. “Their serving was really good and we played more together as a team.”

    East’s gals were getting in more hits and showing marked improvement.

    The Lady Raiders fell to Russell at home Thursday, 2-0.

    “Basically we just didn’t move our feet or communicate in the first game,” Harris said. “If you talk and know where everyone is, that’s the key.”

    East fell 25-12 in the first set and 25-19 in the second.

    Russell showed off their older and more experienced team. The Lady Raiders played great defense but was lacking in offense.

    East beat Bath County on Monday, 2-1.

    The Lady Lions took the first set 25-21, but East battled back and took the second 25-19. The two teams fought through the final set, but the Lady Raiders came back for a 25-23 win.

    “It was really exciting,” Harris said. “We are pretty evenly matched with them. We served and communicated well and we had a lot more offense.”

    East played host to Lewis County on Tuesday (after press time). The Lady Raiders fell to Lewis in the EKC, but East is looking for payback.

    The Lady Raiders travel to Morgan County Thursday for a 6 p.m. match-up.
