After rolling through most of the regular season, the WCMS volleyball team is looking for a little momentum before the Central Tennessee Conference tournament.

The Lady Pioneers suffered their second loss Monday, falling 25-9, 25-9 at Coffee County.

“Our passing was nonexistent,” said coach Holly Morgan. “We know what to do and how to do it, but we beat ourselves mentally.”

Warren County (11-2) had lost just three sets all season going into Monday’s road game, but the team’s serve receive didn’t seem to make the trip. Coffee County was able to pick apart the Lady Pioneers, leading to the easy victory.

“Coffee County took us down with their serves. We tweaked our rotation and serve receive, but nothing seemed to help. It was one of those nights where nothing went our way, and even when it did, we didn’t capitalize on it,” said Morgan.

The Lady Pioneers were playing without one of their best all-around players. Krista Chisam was out due to an illness, leaving the team short-handed against one of its CTC rivals.

Emily Davis had a kill and ace in Monday’s match, while Kennedi Pegg had a pair of assists. Mia Henry added a kill, while Sophie Woodlee finished with one ace.

Morgan is hoping for a quick bounce back this Thursday in the team’s final home game.

“This was a good wake-up call before the CTC tournament. We have one last home game and a playday at the high school this weekend. We’re undefeated at home, so we hope to keep it that way,” said Morgan.

The Lady Pioneers are set to play Tullahoma Thursday at 5 p.m. The CTC tournament is scheduled for September 23 and 24.
