Parish had four aces and Megan Scantlin had three aces.
In game two, the Lady Eagles played host RTC. The Lady Eagles played well, losing to the usual state tourney team 26-28 in game two of the match. Alford had five kills, Marley Ross had 12 assists, Parish 10 digs, and Johnston had three blocks in the loss. Haley Jatzlau just released by the doctors after summer surgery had four digs.
The Lady Eagles lost to Ganado in match three. The girls were hurting when the game started. Two ankles, a groin, and a sore knee hindered the girls in the match. Coach Robertson said, "I give the girls a lot of credit. They went out, gritted their teeth, and played really hard until the end. It takes a lot of mental toughness to overcome pain and play your game. I would have to say we have some pretty tough girls representing Lexington. We will be taking ice baths, and sticking feet into ice buckets. You know the old saying, 'no pain, no gain'."
