CLINCHPORT — The Rye Cove volleyball team closed out the regular season Tuesday evening with 25-14, 25-9, 25-14 sweep of Scott County rival Twin Springs.
The win assured the Lady Eagles of a No. 2 seed heading into next week’s conference tournament.
Rye Cove was in command throughout the Cumberland District match.
A short 8-0 outburst by the Lady Titans knotted the score at 13 in Game 1, but the Cove embarked on a 12-1 run to close out the set.
Games 2 and 3 carried a similar theme: long service-point runs that secured the win.
“It was one of those nights where we didn’t have anybody with big stats other than our servers,” said Rye Cove coach Greg Gilliam. “We had four or five servers get hot and run off a bunch of points and Twin Springs couldn’t handle them.”
Anna Fugate led the Lady Eagles with 14 service points, and Lucindy Lawson had eight to go with 18 digs. Kristin Sanders' six service points fell in behind 21 assists and 11 digs.
Amanda Compton had 20 digs for Twin Springs with Dare Bond chipping in 16.
