Ashtin Holman

Franklin County's Ashtin Holman prepares to serve the ball during a game Tuesday against Lincoln County High School. The Rebelettes would go on to lose the match in straight sets.

The Franklin County Rebelettes lost to the Lincoln County High School Lady Falcons in straight sets at home Tuesday for their 12th loss of the season.

The Rebelettes played a close game in the second set, but the first and last sets would be mostly dominated by the Lady Falcons.

Franklin County head volleyball coach Alveda Gaines said that inconsistent play has been a problem for her team this year and the issue came up again in this match.

“If we could just come out and play consistent for three sets, then we could play with anybody in this district,” Gaines said. “We’re just not focusing and getting a hand on the ball.”

The Lady Falcons scored 16 of the first 18 points of the opening set to establish an early tone for the match. The Lady Falcons went on to win the set by a score of 25-16.

The Rebelettes played a much stronger game in the second set and held a 22-21 lead late in the frame. However, the Lady Falcons then went on a four-point run to grab a 25-22 win.

The Lady Falcons went on another big run at the start of the third set by scoring 15 of the first 16 points to put the Rebelettes in a massive hole.

The Rebelettes were able to regain their footing, but it would be too late as they lost the set by a score of 25-10 to end the match.

With the loss, the Rebelettes moved to 1-12 on the season and 0-4 in district play.

They will next play Thursday at home against Shelbyville Central High School. The match is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.
