Corinth volleyball wins heavyweight showdown against New Albany
Corinth was facing quite a task entering the fourth set against New Albany on Tuesday.
The Lady Warriors were down 2-1 to a Lady Bulldogs squad that had won 20 straight district matches. New Albany had won the previous two sets against coring 50-31. They were, for lack of a better term, rolling.
As has been the case throughout this season: all of those odds meant little to the Lady Warriors
Corinth stormed back and tied the match with a 25-21 win in the fourth and shut the door with a 15-9 victory in the 5th set to claim the match and move to 20-2 on the season (1-0 in district).
Corinth Coach Kelly Wright had no problem expressing how it felt coming away with the victory over their biggest district rival.
“It feels unbelievable. We won a physical and mental battle tonight and I couldn’t be more proud,” Wright said of her teams victory.
Corinth won the first set 25-23 and it was a taste of the evenly matched games to follow.
New Albany went on to win the next two sets, setting up the comeback for the Lady Warriors, who closed the match out with this 15-9 winner and jubilant celebration.
