Lady Miners fall to South

The Linton-Stockton Lady Miner volleyball team lost a 25-21, 14-25, 23-25, 21-25 decision to visiting Terre Haute South in a non-conference match at home Tuesday night.

The Lady Miners slipped to 17-13.

"The girls played a pretty decent match against a really good team," said L-S coach Jill Fougerousse. "South is a much bigger school with a lot more girls to choose from a lot more girls that play club volleyball.

"I really think a match like this, despite the loss, will help us next week when the sectional begins."

South also won the junior varsity match.

Linton-Stockton will play at Class 2A No. 9 Cloverdale Thursday to conclude the regular season.

The Lady Miners will face Sullivan at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Class 2A Eastern Greene Sectional.

It would be nice if more girls played club ball, it would also be nice if Coach Fougerousse supported the local club ball program. Not all families have the resources to make mulitple trips weekly to Terre Haute or Bloomington to play club ball, so why not support the program that makes that option available to her players? Also, what happened to the days of the coach running the elementary feeder program on Sundays? Certainly the earlier these girls get their hands on a ball, the better the HS program, so why isn't Linton concerned with building the program?

There is work to start a program in the elementary. There is a local club volleyball called SWISH and there are local girls who play in it. Locally it is difficult for club ball to run at the same level as the out of town clubs. Keep in mind...rent must be paid to use gymnasiums these days. Money is a huge factor for the local club. I believe Coach Fougerousse does a wonderful job and is open to new ideas. Always looking for volunteers to help and believe me...volunteers are not jumping out of the woodwork.
