Lexington got off to a good start taking its first lead at 2-1, which progressed to 15-9 before Caldwell came roaring back with a rally to tie at 19. From there the Lady Hornets got six straight points for a game one victory of 19-25.

The second game was Lexington’s all the way. The Lady Eagles jumped out to a 4-0 lead, extended it to 9-2 and 24-21 before winning 25-23. The Green team withstood a furious Caldwell rally to win the game.

Game three was in the Hornet corner all the way. Lexington never got in the lead and lost 12-25. The hustle and desire was still there for Lexington, but the winning hits were not present.

Game four was almost a repeat of game one. The teams would get a two or three point lead and the other would rally back until 14- 14. From there, Caldwell pulled ahead to win 18-25.

Every one of the Lady Eagles seemingly hit the floor diving to save a point, dig a shot, or get a ball out of the net. Karsen Ross made some spectacular sets off some foul hit passes. Krista Lerche made some good sets for teammates, as she learns to be the secondary setter so Ross can be the hitter when needed. Madison Bexley fits the libero slot very well as she is constantly moving and diving for balls. Meghann Wrinkle gets some hits as she assumes the hitter and blocker role for the young team. Kristen Boettcher, Mikayla Daniels, Mary Beth Ross, Garlyn Radford, and Amber Turnipseed played well for the Lady Eagles.
