The Washington County Commanderettes lost their first scrimmage match last Tuesday, falling to Taylor County 28-26, 25-7, 25-20.

“We played a really good first game against Taylor,” said WC head coach Brett Hudson. “I told the girls that Taylor would definitely bring the ball back and that they would not give up points easily. Turns out that prediction was pretty accurate. Game two was horrible, the ladies let the loss in the first game get to them. We were a completely different team in game two. Being a scrimmage match, we played a third game and I must say I was proud of the girls because they put game two behind them and played some good volleyball.”

They followed that up Thursday night with a two-set loss to West Jessamine (25-22, 25-21).

“We played great,” Hudson added. “We lost two straight games, but you wouldn’t have known that by my reaction and talk with the ladies. This was probably the best I have seen our team look in a scrimmage since I started coaching at Washington County. We could have been a little quicker getting to and blocking some of West Jessamine’s shots, but we were able to put some good pressure on a couple of West Jessamine’s good hitters. I think by the time we get into district play this year, we will be tough to handle.”

The Commanderettes are back in action Thursday night at Green County.
