After falling to Henry County last week, the Eminence Warriors hit the road to Owen County.
When Eminence hosted Owen County earlier this season, they came away with a 3-2 victory. This time the outcome was much different as the Lady Rebels handed the Warriors a tough defeat, 25-17, 25-16, 25-21.
Warriors coach Stephanie Barrows was unhappy with her team’s performance. “We did not show up to play,” she said. “We have been really off this week. Owen looked no different skill wise from when we played them before. We just could not execute plays at all. This was a huge key to their victory, because when we would set our plays, we would score. We need to improve our passing, setting, serving and setting up plays.”
But Barrows was happy with one specific player.
“Brie Prewitt was amazing,” she said. “She was all over the place and really took charge in this game. I was really proud of her and her willingness to do whatever it took to make the play.”
EHS 2, Waggener 0
In a trip to Louisville on Sept. 10, the Warriors came away with a 25-14, 25-15 victory.
Barrows said the key to victory was good teamwork and communication. Coming off a big win over Western Hills, Barrows thought the team was ready to get back to winning ways.
“I think that the team was ready to win and get that winning taste back,” she said. “We played really well. We had really good hits and really worked the net well. Our serving was on and we kept up the enthusiasm the whole game. The game was never close.”
EHS 2 Evangel 0
Monday night, the Warriors made short work of Evangel Christian, winning easily 25-7, 25-5.
The Warriors served well and Evangel found it hard to return serve as the Warriors had 33 aces in the contest.
