The Logan County Lady Cougars continued their dominance of 13th District Volleyball last week by beat Franklin-Simpson 3-0. Set scores were 25-18, 25-8, 25-9.

Coach Caleb Sheffield’s Lady Cougars were credited with 30 kills while Franklin-Simpson had just 5.

This was the 127th straight district win for the Lady Cougars, who have won 17 straight district championships since last losing a district match on Aug. 17, 2004. They also haven’t lost a single set since Sept. 11 of that same year, with the total reaching 305 straight sets in this match. The current juniors were age 1 when the streak began.

Lady Cougar statistics follow:

Kills: Rachel Dearn 11, Zoe Steenbergen & Katie Baer 6 each, Aubrey Sears 5

Blocks: Caroline Kelley & Steenbergen 1 each

Assists: Nevaeh DeArmond 28, Embry Burgess 2

Digs: Burgess 12, Katie Fitzgerald 7, DeArmond 3, Kelley & Sears 2 each, Dezarn & Kallie Jo Carpenter 1 each

Service Aces: Dezarn 6, Fitzgerald 5, Summer Price, DeArmond and Kelley 3 each

Sears, Dezarn, Steenbergen, Kelley, DeArmond, Baer, Fitzgerald and Burgess played in all three sets. Lydia Owens and Haleigh Wood joined Carpenter and Price in alternating.

After beating Muhlenberg County Monday, the Lady Cougars return to district play tonight at Todd Central. Saturday Sheffield’s team is scheduled to play in the Bluegrass Invitational in Lexington. 

The official Volleyball Senior Night is scheduled next Tuesday, Sept, 22, against Russellville. Athletic Director Greg Howard held a simple recognition Monday night in case the real Senior Night gets cancelled because of  COVID-19. Game will start at 5:30 p.m. in LCHS Auxiliary Gym.
