The Lady Titans volleyball team continued their quest for a 20-win season this week with matches over the Boyle County Rebels and Danville Admirals.
Mercer hosted the Boyle County Lady Rebels Thursday, Aug. 21.
The teams started out slow trying to find a rhythm and trading serves, but it didn’t take long for Mercer County to find their groove.
The Titans had leads as much as 16-9 and 24-12 in the first game, before sloppy play and a rally by the Rebels tightened the gap.
The Rebels battled back to make it 24-17, before a wild shot gave Mercer the first game 25-17.
“We made way too many mistakes, and played really sloppy”, said Head Coach David Sullivan.
The second game started out all Mercer as they led 11-4 early on. But the same mistakes hurt the Lady Titans and Boyle County closed the gap to 15-13.
As the score got closer, Mercer County sophomore Kennedy Bryant held serve for six consecutive serves to extend the Team’s lead to 21-13.
