Batesville- At the 3A Sectional 29 volleyball tournament Saturday, hosted Batesville, Greensburg avenged four earlier losses to a pair of EIAC opponents and captured the program’s first sectional title since 1999.

During the regular season, Greensburg lost twice to both Batesville and Lawrenceburg.  On Saturday, coach June Rigney’s Lady Pirates beat both the Bulldogs and Tigers to win their fourth sectional overall.

Saturday’s semifinals began with a 3-0 win by Lawrenceburg over Madison: 25-19, 25-16, 25-15 (stats pending).  It was the 30th win of the season for coach Staci Knigga’s Lady Tigers and marked the third time in five years LHS has reached the 30-win mark.

In the second semi, Greensburg took on tournament host Batesville for a third time this season.  During the first two meetings, the Bulldogs beat the Bucs 3-1 on each occasion.  But in the postseason match, Greensburg bested Batesville 3-0: 25-22, 25-17, 25-22.

Greensburg’s June Rigney- “Mary West had the match of her career with 20 kills. She was effective at the net and swinging from the back row.”

Batesville’s Jody Thomas- “It’s hard to beat a good team three times, and that would seem to be our destiny.  But after seeing the Pirates in the final, it wasn’t about our destiny but theirs.  Greensburg played every point Saturday with chip on their shoulders.  The Pirates had a ‘we cannot lose attitude’ and some outright gritty defense.  We struggled to make plays, saw some communication breakdowns and missed the square more times then hit it.”

“Their Libero (Jara Ramirez) was causing us fits, digging every hitting lane we had open due to their big blockers.  She had a great game but held our team to a .016 hitting percentage.  Defensively, we were doing our all to keep the Pirates down, but you cannot play defense all the time.”
