Rushville coach Nan Scanlan: The Lady Lions got their first conference win by defeating Franklin County.  From the first serve to the last, the Lady Lions played hard and played one of their best matches of the season.  Emily Hadley stepped into the outside hitter position for the first time this season and we did not miss a beat.  She played one of her best games ever.

I am so proud of this team for the way they bounced back from Greensburg and come out against Franklin County with more energy.  I have to give a shout out to Emily Hadley as she was just amazing.

Franklin County coach Jill Mergenthal: We were ready but somehow let this win slip away from us. It was a combination of little things. Net calls, both ways, service errors and our serve receive. I really felt like we were going to capture the “W” in set 2. When we didn’t, we were still head strong and ready to play set 3. These girls are playing good ball. It’s just not all at the same time. We will get there!  We did have 5 aces tonight.
