Greensburg avenges four losses to win 3A Sectional 29

So the finals were set with Greensburg to play Lawrenceburg for a third time in 2018.  In August’s first match at Lawrenceburg, the Tigers won 3-1.  A month later in Greensburg, LHS prevailed 3-1.  But in Saturday’s sectional championship, it was the Pirates who won in four outstanding sets.  GCHS took sets one and two by counts of 29-27 and 25-23.  LHS pulled off a victory in game three, 25-22.  But Greensburg responded in the fourth set, winning a thriller, 25-23.

Following a couple of early ties and lead changes in the fourth game, Lawrenceburg scored four straight points to go up 8-6.  Cora Taylor had three kills and Grace Taylor carded an ace in the run.

From there, Lawrenceburg had a couple of three-point leads while turning away Greensburg after the Pirates tied the score three more times.  LHS led 20-17 after a kill by McKenna Lorton.

Greensburg called time out and coaxed the Tigers into a service error.  It was part of a four-point flurry for the Pirates which included a kill by Mary West and an ace from Reagan Rigney.

Greensburg’s 21-20 lead was brief though.  The Pirates had an attack error and Lawrenceburg’s Emma Cornett put back a Pirate overpass to give the Tigers a 23-21 advantage.  That proved to be Lawrenceburg’s final two points.

An LHS service error followed by a block from Anna West squared the game for a 10th time at 23-all.  A Tiger attack error resulted in the game’s sixth lead change and then Greensburg finished off the sectional championship as Taylor Cooney fed Anna West one more time for the 25-23 title winning hammer.

Greensburg’s June Rigney- “It was such a dogfight and one we finally believed we could win which resulted in a sectional title. Without a doubt, it was a team win. Each player had a role to fulfill, and that’s exactly what they did. They all found a way to contribute.”

We had multiple people serve at a high percentage like Jara Ramirez, Raegan Rigney, Ellie Jackson, Taylor Cooney, Anna West, Mary West, and Emma DeWeese. We only missed four serves in the entire match which was a huge stat for us. Offensively, Mary and Anna led us in kills, but Aliyah Evans did her job so well keeping Lawrenceburg off balance and Audrey Lawson and Jackson contributed with a kill now and again. Blocking was key to our success especially in game four and, throughout the match, we executed 13 blocks as a team.”
