The Lady Rebels volleyball team hit the road this week; scoring big against South Montgomery and falling hard to Lakeside.
In a 4 match game against South Montgomery on Tuesday the Rebels had a strong serving game with 22 team aces. Kelsey Oliver led the team with 6 aces and Bailey Allen added 5. Tate Reese scored on 7 kills and Bailey Allen had 6 in the win.
Thursday’s trip to Lakeside in Eufaula told a different tale. The ladies lost to Lakeside in 3 straight matches; 25-22, 25-19 and 25-18. Leading the Rebels were Tate Reese with 7 kills and 3 aces, Jessica Harmon with 3 kills and Bailey Allen with 3 aces and 2 kills.
The JV girls also succumbed to Lakeside in 2 matches; 25-23 and 25-14. Leading the JV was Audra Slay with 4 aces and Lindsey Fuller with 7 assists. Britten Stephens also had 2 kills in the loss.
Head Coach Chandra Beck commented on the games stating “They didn’t play their game the way they know how to: therefore resulting in a loss”.
The Lady Rebels are on the road again facing Autauga on September 8th. This will be a big area game for the Rebels. A win, putting them one step closer to post season play.
