Second-half surge propels South Central

-A A +A
By Andrew Harner

FARINA – The Lady Cougars may not be as potent as some of the recent versions, but this year’s squad has sure made the most out of an otherwise ordinary season.

Coming into the regional title game with just a 16-16 record, South Central gave its pedestrian season an extraordinary finish with a 25-21, 18-25, 25-19 win against top-seeded North Clay.

South Central was 5-10 on Sept. 26 after losing to North Clay in three sets. After that weekend at the Herrin Tournament, it was 8-12.

But a 3-2 record there was undoubtedly the season’s turning point.
