Green County’s reign over the 18th District continued Tuesday night.

The top-seeded Lady Dragons won their 11th straight 18th District Volleyball Tournament title with a 25-19, 25-13, 25-12 win over the second-seeded LaRue County Lady Hawks.

Green County (31-6) has won the district every year since 2003 and improved to 3-0 against LaRue County (23-9) this season.

“They’re good. They took care of business when they needed to,” said Lady Hawks coach Ben Schell. “They’ll take advantage of every opportunity you give them.”

After a close first set, the Lady Dragons pulled away in the last two en route to another sweep over LaRue County.

Senior middle hitter Alley Evans led the Lady Hawks with six kills, two blocks and one dig, while senior middle hitter Ivy Brown added four kills, three blocks and one dig.

Senior setter Lorren Newby chipped in with 16 assists and sophomore outside hitter Chloe Owen had two kills, two aces and two digs.

Brown, Newby and senior libero Sadie Peters were named to the All-Tournament team. Brown and Evans were named to the district’s All-Season team.
