The LSE Lady Pirates volleyball team dropped a three set match at home Thursday night at the hands of the Versailles Lady Tigers by the scores of 25-23, 23-25 and 12-15.
LSE assistant coach Jessica Luscombe said the girls definitely showed up to play against Versailles. “This was easily one of the hardest teams we have faced and we did not back down,” Luscombe said. “They were blocking and getting almost everything up. Our serves really kept us in the game as well. Even though we didn’t win I feel that all the girls played really well and played as a team.”

Rayghan Skoufos finished the match with 16 service points with nine digs while Nora Morris added 11 digs  along with 10 service points with one ace and two assists, Faith Mesik with 15 digs and eight service points, Hope Mesik with six service points and four digs, Deana Henderson with eight service points, one dig and one kill, Jenna McKee with three digs and three service points, Kadison Hammers with one dig and one kill and Ella Kearns with one dig.
In the seventh grade match, LSE lost in three sets as well 25-20, 23-25 and 9-15.
Luscombe said serves are usually the Lady Pirates down fall but they did great against Versailles. “They moved their feet a lot better,” Luscombe said. “They played as a team and I am very proud of them. I hope this carries over into next week.”
