Outside hitters Melanie and Brea Huhn combined for 22 kills, leading LaRue County High School past Campbellsville 25-20, 25-11 in varsity volleyball action at Campbellsville Thursday.

"We've had a stretch for the last couple weeks in which we really haven't played well, but we've been able to compete and win," LaRue's coach, Ben Schell, said.

"We made a lot of mistakes in the first game with Campbellsville, but finally got our act together and dominated game two."

Melanie Huhn totaled 15 kills, Brea seven kills and two aces as the Lady Hawks (19-8-2) picked up their third straight victory.

Sophomore setter Molly Kennedy notched 20 assists and added three kills.

"Molly struggled early but kept working hard," said Schell.  "Melanie and Brea did a great job of finishing points."

The Lady Eagles jayvees won 21-9, 21-7.

Lady Bulldogs tamed

Playing what Schell described as, "well enough to win," LaRue drubbed John Hardin 25-18, 25-19 at Elizabethtown Sept. 30.

"John Hardin is a very young team who will be a force in the area in the years to come," said Schell. "We were fundamentally superior and we did what we had to do to pick up the win.”

Melanie Hun made 10 kills, Brea Huhn nine kills, one block, one dig; Jessica Stanley two kills, five blocks, one ace; Lauren Patterson four blocks; two kills; Kennedy 19 assists, two kills, two aces; Megan Mauldin two blocks, one ace; Allie Perkins four digs.

"Brea did a good job of pounding the ball down when she was given the opportunity," said Schell. "Melanie was the exact opposite as she looked for the open spots, played tips, and pushed the ball when she had the opportunity."

He continued, "Molly did a great job of getting the ball where we wanted it to go. She wasn’t given the best passes in the world to work with, but she worked hard and did a great job."

John Hardin's junior varsity won 23-21, 21-15. In the freshman match, LaRue scored an 18-13, 18-10 win.
