Apollo volleyball snuck out a win in the third set against Daviess County, but it was too little too late as the Lady Panthers won the match in four sets (25-18, 25-19, 14-25, 25-21).

Daviess County came out looking to take an early lead in the match, grabbing a 25-18 win in the opening set. 

Following the second set, the Lady Panthers had all momentum, earning a similar victory by a score of 25-19.

Determined to swing the momentum in the complete opposite direction, the E-gals came out on fire in the third set and grabbed a 25-14 win.

However, Daviess County responded by trading points back and forth with Apollo in the fourth set, but ultimately grabbed a 25-21 set win in order to claim the match 3-1.

Juniors Josie Newcom and Adylan Ayer set the tone for the match offensively, recording 11 kills each on the night.

Junior Lexi Owen led the charge for the Lady Panthers, setting up the offense time and time again with a team-leading 30 assists.

It was junior Taylor Roberts and Newcom leading the way defensively, finishing with 12 and 11 digs respectively.

Senior Havanah John and sophomore Ahalia Ramirez led the way offensively for Apollo finishing with 28 kills and 42 assists respectively.

It was a balanced approach for E-gals defensively, as sophomore Kelsey Dickinson (14), senior Abby Spong (13), senior Courtney Hagan (13) and sophomore Kaley Dickinson (12) all finished in double figures.

Daviess County now sits at 16-9 overall on the season and will look to close out the regular season strong when they host Hancock County at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
