FORT WAYNE—A spirited third set by the Lady Jets was not enough to salvage a faulty first two frames as Adams Central fell 3-1 on the road at Carroll Monday night, 25-18, 25-19, 25-15, 25-16.
The Chargers, one of Bellmont's fiercest rivals from 4A, looked sharp in their opening first set jumping out to a 9-2 start before the Lady Jets managed their first kill of the game off the hands of Abbey Lichtle. A combination of some out of character errors by AC and Carroll's quick start were the culprits.
