Neither Lawrence County volleyball team was able to win a match Saturday, as they participated in multi-team tournaments.

Lawrenceville dropped five matches in a tournament at Casey, while Red Hill was 0-4 in competition at Robinson.

The Salukis (0-5) lost matches to Robinson, North Central, Ind., and Martinsville in pool play before falling to Hutsonville in three games in the seventh-place match.

"It was a growing and experience day for us," Red Hill coach Sarah Will said. "We definitely improved and are still trying to overcome that hump to win."

Robinson decked the Salukis, 25-12, 25-13 in the opener.

Hannah McVey had three aces to lead the Salukis, while Emilee Ellingsworth led the team with three assists and McKenzie Wolfe led the team with two kills.

North Central stopped Red Hill, 25-9, 25-18, in the second match of the day.

Ellingsworth led the team with seven assists and two aces. Andi Tennis came through with four kills while Wolfe led the way with four digs.

Ellingsworth led the team with six assists in a 25-18, 25-12 loss to Martinsville. Tennis added two kills and two digs while Wolfe had a team-high six kills with two digs and two aces. McVey led the team with four aces.

The Salukis got off to a good start in the seventh-place match against Hutsonville by winning the opening game, 25-20. Hutsonville fought back to claim the match by winning the final two games, 25-23, 15-6.

Ellingsworth had 12 assists, while Katie Nicholas had four kills. Tennis added four aces while Wolfe had six kills and McVey a pair of aces.


The Indians dropped matches to Teutopolis, Hartsberg-Emden and Edwards County. LHS dropped a match to Broadlands Heritage in the flight for teams that finished third in their pool, then fell to Fairfield in the 11th-place match.

"In the morning matches the girls played very hard and competitively against solid teams," said LHS coach Trinity Britton, whose team is now 0-7. "We've got mostly underclassmen but they hung in there during those matches."

Brianna Mefford totaled nine aces on the day to lead the Indians, while Morgan Mefford was credited with five. Mefford also led the way with 19 kills, while Amanda Seed and Kazia Frederick both had 10. Morgan Mefford's 23 digs were a team-high, while Seed added 16 and Frederick 12. Brianna Mefford contributed six blocks, while Kourtney Osmon led the team with 22 assists and Abby Higginbotham contributed 20.

"It was a long day all the way around," Britton said. "But the girls pushed through it as a team."
