Countryside extended its record to 26-0 with a 25-16, 25-20, 25-14 win against Sickles (13-12) in the Class 6A-District 7 girls volleyball final Thursday at Gaither High, but Cougars coach Kaylyn Bayly still wasn't impressed.
"To win and not play as well as we could have showed that we got complacent," Bayly said. "We weren't as focused as we should have been and we have some work to do."
The win avenged Countryside's loss last year to Sickles in the district final, so there was a lingering aftertaste that Bayly said fueled the fire in the win against Sickles.
"On a good night we can play with anyone in our region," Bayly said. "We have a lot of work to do because we didn't play our best tonight."
Madison Truluck dominated the net with 13 kills and Sickles spent most of the third set hitting away from her only to find Davionna DiSalvatore, who took over. Sara Wright had 30 assists for the Cougars.
