RHS volleyball falls to Colbert Heights
Kim West, Franklin County Times
In volleyball action last night, the Russellville varsity and junior varsity teams hosted Colbert Heights.
The Lady Golden Tigers varsity (9-12) dropped their first two games en route to a 3-0 loss the Lady Wildcats in a best-of-five match.
The Russellville junior varsity won its first two games against Colbert Heights but lost the final three to lose 3-2 in a best-of-five match.
Both squads will have a much-needed weekend off to rest for a region tri-match at Decatur on Tuesday, Sept. 25. Both the varsity and junior varsity play matches at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.
The match against the Lady Red Raiders will be the next-to-last opportunity for Russellville to improve its Region 8 standing, with only a match against Athens left on the region schedule.
The Lady Golden Tigers return home on Thursday, Oct. 4 to host Haleyville and Cherokee in a tri-match at 4 p.m. (varsity and junior varsity) and 5 p.m. (junior varsity only).
