Louisa County High School’s volleyball and field hockey teams traveled to Albemarle High School on March 23 to take on the Patriots. The Patriots came away with the win in both games.


The Lions’ volleyball team fell in a 3-0 contest to the Patriots, with Albemarle taking the sets 25-11, 25-6 and 25-10.

“Albemarle is a solid, well-rounded team,” said Lions’ head coach Rachel Green. “Our goal going in was to stay strong mentally, get as many touches on the block as we could, and get as many digs as possible off of their strong core of hitters. Although the games were tough we played together as a team and can use the many learning opportunities to build and grow.”

Kylie Robinson led the Lions’ defense with 10 digs, followed by Abby VanPelt with seven. Emma McGehee notched four kills and an ace for Louisa, while Robinson and Kallie Monahan each added a pair of kills.

The Lions (2-3) travel to Charlottesville on March 25 to take on the Black Knights, then return to The Den for home games against Albemarle and the Orange County Hornets on March 29 and 30. Varsity action begins at 6:30 p.m. for all three games.
