Corinth rallies, tops New Albany in five sets to grab division lead

Photo by Larry Glidewell

Corinth senior All-State libero Sarah Kate Burns returns a kill shot in the fifth set of Tuesday's division match against two-time defending division champion New Albany. The No. 8 Lady Warriors fell into a 2-1 hole and trailed early in set four before somehow reaching down inside themselves and pulling out a huge win over the Lady Bulldogs at CHS gym. "This win is huge," said Corinth head coach Kelly Wright, "not only in the win column but mentally and emotionally as well. They (New Albany) have taken the division crown from us the past two years, and are a really good team, so this was sweet getting this kind of emotional win at home. But we have to play them again." Burns is part of a senior-laden class that controlled the division prior to New Albany's two-year run so this was a huge win for her and her teammates, too. "We all came together after we lost those two sets and we decided we were just gonna settle down and play our game and that's what we did. This felt like a playoff game to me. And our fan support was really huge as always." Corinth improves to 20-2 overall and 1-0 in division play. They travel to take on Ripley Thursday.
