Lady Cougars fall to North Knox
ELNORA — The North Daviess Cougars volleyball team lost to North Knox in three sets on Monday, 19-25, 18-25, 11-25.
“Last night we started out with good solid energy, and we played two better sets which resulted in scores of 19-25 and 18-25 against a taller and more athletic North Knox team. In the third set, I felt that we lost the intensity and just came out flat. We expressed to the girls that if we brought that energy every time, there would not be any fault with the outcome of any match. Wins would come and fans would fill the stands, they would love to be on the court,” said ND coach Gina Ingrahm.
The Cougars were led by Macey Wagler: two aces, 12 assists, five digs; Kaylan Craven: eight digs, three kills; Megan Marner: three kills, one ace, eight digs, one assist; Jaryn Gingerich: three digs; Mya Knepp: one ace, seven kills, eight digs; Dakota McNabb: six digs, one kill; Emma Sargent: two digs and Reagan Knepp: one dig.
