Lady Warriors score big off the court

Staff writer

The Peabody-Burns Lady Warriors did not win in last Tuesday’s Dig Pink event. At least, not on the court.

Off the court, however, the PBHS volleyball team raised $289 from T-shirt sales to donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in support of those fighting breast cancer, head coach Isaac Burnett said.

The night opened for the Lady Warriors with a game against Centre. The Cougars won both sets 25-13. In PBHS’s second match, also against Centre, the Lady Warriors won the opening set 25-22 before falling in the last two 25-14 and 25-23, respectively.

“We made some minor adjustments between games, but the biggest difference from (the first match to the second) was the girls trusting each other and themselves to achieve success in a team effort,” Burnett said. “League tournament is coming up and you never know what can happen when a team is getting hot.

“If we continue to play like we did Tuesday in the second match we will have as good a chance as anyone at league.”

Brianna Larsen led the team with 12 kills over the two matches. Katy Benson had nine kills, Anna Lubbers had six. Benson led the team with 13 assists on the night. Lubbers had three blocks, Schreiber had three as well including one assist.
