Coffee County volleyball beats Eagleville in straight sets

Lady Raiders Freshman Kiya Ferrell goes up for a kill against Eagleville Wednesday night.

The Coffee County Lady Raiders played host to the visiting Eagleville Lady Eagles of Rutherford County Wednesday night. 

Coffee County was looking to rebound from a disappointing 1-3 loss to Riverside Christian the night before, where the Lady Raiders had kept it close in the first and third sets against Riverside and won the second, but could not hang on in the fourth set. 

Wednesday saw a return to form as the Lady Raiders flew past Eagleville in straight sets for a 3-0 victory. 

"It was a good bounce back game for us," Coach Andrew Taylor said. "We came out with probably a little more energy than last night."

Coffee County set a solid tempo early on, maintaining the lead despite Eagleville keeping it close at 25-20. The second set saw the Lady Raiders take a more commanding 25-17 before blowing out the Lady Eagles in the third, with 25-8.

Helping seal the win was a dominant serving performance by Coffee County.

"Our service game didn't bother Riverside like it bothered Eagleville," Taylor said. "We just played better, we kept the ball inbounds. You gotta keep the ball in play."

Abigail Layne led a strong service run by the Lady Raiders with four aces and an 82.4 serve in percentage. Other standout performances included Keelie Hillis, Kerri Munn and Kiya Ferrel with four kills each and Amanda Mukai with 11 assists.
