CHS volleyball sweeps Tullahoma

CHS volleyball player Kiya Ferrel defends the net.

The CHS volleyball team played in county rival Tullahoma on Sept. 23 for the second time this season. This time, however, the Cats would travel to Coffee County Central. The Red Raiders swept Tullahoma in the first meeting of the two teams and had won quite a few tough matches since then. The first set was punctuated by a dominate performance by Laura Brandt who blasted Tullahoma with six aces. Kiya Ferrel made her presence known in the first set with thunderous spikes that Tullahoma couldn’t return. The duo combined for 11 points for the Red Raiders as the team cruised to a 25 to 16 victory in the first set.

Ferrel kept her dominate performance in the second set as she was a menace around the net. Ferrel was always in a position to score during the match, but she hit her stride in the second set as she scored six points for her team. Keri Munn also found her stride in the second set as she scored ace after ace on Tullahoma. The team took the second set off of Tullahoma 25-15.

The third set was a back and forth contest as both teams fought to finish the game. Tullahoma was able to gain a lead for the first time of the match as the team was able to string to together score after score. Coffee County responded in kind with their own offensive flurry. Coffee was able to weather the storm and pulled off the sweep winning 25-23.
