The Colleton County Lady Cougar varsity volleyball team fell in a region match against Hilton Head last Thursday Sept. 14 to bring them to 4-6 overall and 2-2 in Region 8-AAAA.
Earlier this month, Colleton County picked up a win over Lake Marion in three sets 25-6, 25-7 and 25-18, then lost to Branchville in four sets 25-13 (L), 25-13 (L), 25-23 (W) and 25-22 (L).
Against Hilton Head, the Lady Cougars lost in three sets to the Seahawks going 25-14 (L), 25-10 (L) and 25-17 (L).
“Although we didn’t get the numerical outcome we wanted, it was still a win for us,” said assistant coach Katelyn Willis. “This season we’ve struggled with different areas of the team and components of the game and bringing it all together. Sure, there were some ouch moments and small frustrations when we gave up points and things didn’t go our way. But the girls really played well as a team and looked like they were having fun, which is something that had been missing earlier in the season. We will definitely be ready for another chance against Hilton Head in October.”
The JV team defeated Lake Marion in three sets Thursday Sept. 7 at home 25-7, 25-13 and 25-9.
