Head coach Tara Turner has developed the Monroe County Lady Falcons into a program bordering on a volleyball dynasty. Over the last two years, the Lady Falcons are 42-11 during the regular season.
Pretty impressive numbers for any team.
But if Monroe County wants to be successful next week at the District 15 Volleyball Tournament at Barren County High School, the Lady Falcons’ chances may rest on the play of sophomore standout Connar Richardson.
“We've faced a lot of adversity this year. Rachel Lundy, one of our best middle hitters, was hit by a car as she was loading the school bus one day. She is doing OK, but she has 10 screws, one plate and two pins in her ankle,” said Turner. “She's fortunate to be with us, but she will be out the rest of the year.
“We were playing so well with Rachel in the lineup. We were solid all the way around with her on the floor. But with her not in the lineup, it is hard to be as consistent.”
The Lady Falcons (22-4) will open play in the district tournament on Monday, Oct. 8, against the Glasgow Lady Scotties (1-24) at 5:30 p.m. Barren County (14-17) will take on Allen County-Scottsville (15-15) immediately following the first match at approximately 7 p.m. The district final is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 5:30 p.m.
