This Tuesday, the Lady Eagles played Paducah Tilghman in Volleyball.

Khristian Elliot shares his insight on Tuesdayś game: ¨I believe our Lady Eagles will came out strong and play hard for the win, our libero has been a key player on our team this weekend and I believe they will continue to be.¨

The Lady Eagles beat the Tornadoes in 3 straight sets at home Tuesday night adding to their 10-1 record. The Lady Eagles swept Tilghman with scores of 14-25, 9-25, and 10-25. Graves County is currently ranked 12th in the state and the Lady Eagles are hoping to push their way to state this year and beat their known rivals the McCracken County Mustangs.

¨I have been seeing more and more mental toughness from these girls,¨ Elliot continued, ¨and want to see it continue to grow, in the past I’ve seen pressure be applied by other teams and we would fold under it but this season is definitely a step in the right direction. Our team has to own it to win it.¨ 

Taylor Courtney had a total of 21 assists and 4 kills against Tilghman Tuesday night.

¨Tonight’s game was great but it could have been better,¨ Courtney said. ¨We didn’t come out as strong as we should’ve and that’s why we didn’t beat them as much in the first set. I have high hopes for this season. This is the best opportunity we have had for going to regionals since McCracken was formed. We have a great team and a great new head coach, and I believe he will lead us to our goal of 30-5 this season.¨
