Lady Pack win own invitational


September 18, 2013
Crawford County rebounded from its Tuesday loss to Perry Central to win its own invitationsl tournament on Saturday.

In their first match, the Lady Pack got a little payback from earlier in the season against Springs Valley, winning in a 25-17,17-25, 15-11 decision. In their second match of the tourney, they upended Chirstian Academy of Indiana's JV 25-14, 25-19.

"We were able to redeem ourselves against Springs Valley," Crawford County coach Angie Allen said. "The girls were communicating really well and playing as a team. They were really happy and excited they beat Valley.

"The Christian Academy game was a bit slower paced, but it allowed us to really work on passing to the target. Tylynn (Allen) had some awesome sets and Kayla (Elsea) and Brooke (Sauer) had good hits. We tell the girls all the time it starts with a good pass. With a good pass, we can get a good set, which allows us the opportunity to have good hits."

It took three games for Crawford County to get by the Mitchell Lady Jackets. The Lady Pack fell to Mitchell in a close 25-22 game one, but bounced back in game two for a 25-15 win. Crawford County had to rally in game three, but came away with a 15-10 win for the tournament title.

"By the time the Mitchell game rolled around, our girls were getting tired and their playing showed it," Allen said. "We were struggling on our back row passing, and mentally our girls were not in the game. By the second game, we told the girls they had to focus on each play, play by play. We came back to win game two and came from behind to win game three."

"We wanted to keep the trophy here at home," Allen said. "I'm not exactly sure how long it has been since we have won our own invitational. Our girls worked hard today. We have started a new mentality when playing, focus on the 'now,' play for a point at a time and only allow the other team one serve. Desire, dedication and teamwork are key."
