The Trinity Lutheran volleyball team appears to be making it a habit of getting down in a match before finding a way to win.
The Cougars had a four-set win over Crothersville on Tuesday and a five-set win over Hauser on Thursday. Then in Saturday’s Cougar Invitational, after cruising past Rising Sun in the opener, Class A No. 3 Trinity trailed early in the first set against Brown County before rallying to the win. Brown County forced a third set, and Trinity built an early lead and held off a charge.
In its final match of the day, Trinity commanded Crothersville 25-9 in the first set. The Tigers took the lead late in the second set before making some errors, and the Cougars took advantage.
That marked the Cougars’ fourth straight year winning their own tournament. Earlier this season, they beat three of four teams in three sets in winning the Barr-Reeve Invitational.
“It shows a lot that we like to ride the roller coaster going up and getting down and then coming around,” Cougars sophomore hitter Liz Hill said.
But that’s not to add stress to coach Chelsey Hackman, is it? “We try not to,” Hill said with a smile.
