Susan McCoy led the Lions with 26 kills and 18 blocks.

“Susan had a great day today,” Brown said. “She has stepped into a leadership role and is leading by example.”

Katie Clapp had 58 assists, Marissa Weedin and Brittney Page each had 18 kills and Kyle Tincher added 14 kills for the Lions. McCoy, Clapp and Holly Whitworth, who finished with six kills, all made the All-Tournament team.

“Katie Clapp did an excellent job getting the ball to the hitters and Kylie Tincher, Brittney Page and Marissa Weedin had some tremendous kills,” Brown said.

Clarksville finished 2-1, beating Cannelton 25-15, 25-22 and Crothersville 25-19 and 25-22 before falling to Rock Creek.

Ali Sparkman paced the Generals with 28 kills, 22 digs, five aces and three blocks. Cheyenne Bledsoe had 54 assists for Clarksville.
