Greenfield-Central 3, Lawrence Central 1
The Cougars moved to 11-6 by beating Lawrence Central 25-19, 25-20, 18-25, 25-22 going away in a non-conference tilt Monday.
Season-best performances by Rachel Irbe (19 kills), Megan Bradley (44 assists), Alex Colclazier (30 digs) and Jordan Bunch (16 kills) propelled Greenfield-Central to victory.
“I’m so proud of these girls and our fans, together we earned this one. Lawrence Central had a very strong defense and they made it very hard for the Lady Cougars to get the ball down for a point,” G-C coach Rita Rouse said. “Persistent, aggressive play by our hitters backed up by our own strong defense finally got the job done in four sets.”
G-C is at Scecina Thursday.
