    David Hibbard said his team was a little nervous to start the season opener against Woodford County on Aug. 14. Those nerves didn't last long. Behind 11 kills each from Mary Ann May and Chloe May, the Lady Knights defeated the Lady Yellowjackets in four sets (22-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-18) in Versailles.  
    "We were aggressive, but we hit balls out on offense, missed a few serves and just couldn't get a passing rhythm,” Hibbard said. “Even then, we still almost won the first set."
