“Although we were playing without two varsity starters due to illness, I was extremely proud of how we battled each point against a very good Pike Central team. Their jump serves caused us difficulty in serve reception and their attack was relentless. Our defense was very good, but several of their hitters were very powerful,” said ND coach Ruthanne Burkhart.

“For us to score in the middle teens in each game was a huge positive for us. We hung in there on many long rallies and never gave up. Heads were up, attitude was good and effort was unquestionable.

“As their coach, I felt pride in their representation of Lady Cougar volleyball.”

The JV Lady Cougars were defeated by PC 13-25 and 17-25. ND was led by Stevi Beck with four kills and two blocks, while Larynda Keith had four assists and three service points.
