Hesston spikers keep on rolling

By Steve Sell
October 01, 2014

The Hesston Swathers continue to show the form that has made them a state-ranked volleyball team all season.

The Swathers stayed on cruise control Tuesday in a home tri, dispatching Nickerson (25-12, 25-13) and Pratt (25-19, 25-14).

Hesston is now 15-2, 6-1 in the Central Kansas League. Its only losses are to Hillsboro, which recently moved up to 3A. The Trojans are the defending 2A champions and have been ranked No. 1 all year.

“We hit very well against Nickerson with 30 kills and only four errors,” Hesston coach Jason Peters said. “We had 27 kills against Pratt, but lost a little energy throughout the match and weren’t quite as sharp in all areas. We had our best blocking matches of the season so far, and we were able to get more attacks in out-of-system situations.  Next week starts a very busy and tough part of our schedule, as we play about half of our matches for the season in the next three weeks leading up to sub-state.”

Against Nickerson, Cami Richardson and Caylee Richardson totaled eight kills apiece. Jessanna Nebel led in assists with 13 and Caylee Richardson was tops in digs with eight. Against Pratt, Caylee Richardson had nine kills, Nebel totaled 14 assists and Cami Richardson came up with eight digs.

• WILDCATS GO 1-1, EAGLES 0-2 — In a quad it hosted, Moundridge split as it defeated Canton-Galva (25-16, 25-16), but lost to Sedgwick (23-25, 20-25).

“We blocked well tonight,” Wildcat coach Kelsi Chisholm said. “We had lots of opportunities to block against Sedgwick's hitters. I thought our usual good serve receive was a bit off.  Also our hitting needs to gain more power and consistency.”

Anna Stucky led in kills with nine, while Peri Lange and Elizabeth Ratzlaff turned in 11 and 10 assists, respectively. Emily Knight contributed four aces. Moundridge stayed in the hunt for the HOA title as it’s now 6-1 in league matches.

In that same quad, Canton-Galva went 0-2.

The Eagles’ other match in addition to Moundridge was against Bennington and the Eagles took the Bulldogs to three sets (19-25, 25-15, 14-25).

“We definitely have the physical talent to compete in the HOA,” C-G coach Jenny Loyd said. “We lack the mental toughness, leadership skills and the motivational push to consistently achieve individually and as a team. It’s time for players to dig deep, step up mentally and decide to go for the gold.”

• INMAN GOES 1-1  — The Teutons had a break-even night.

They defeated Remington in a thrilling three-setter (25-20, 18-25, 25-23), but lost to Marion (21-25, 18-25).

No other information was available.

• ELYRIA EARNS SPLIT — Elyria Christian won and lost in its triangular.

The Eagles lost to Solomon (19-25, 15-25), but came back to topple Peabody (25-20, 25-12).

No other information was available.

• VIKES LOSE TWO — Smoky Valley is now 3-4 in the CKL after a pair of losses.

The Vikings dropped a decision to Haven (18-25, 8-25) and also went down to Hoisington in three (25-23, 17-25, 25-27).

No other information was available.

• No report from Little River.

GODDARD — McPherson High’s reshuffled tennis team placed third Tuesday in the Goddard Quad.

The Bullpups did not send their normal lineup, as coach Tyler Brown rested his top singles players Ellea Ediger and Katlyn Reifschneider.

Conway Springs scored 9 points, with Wichita Independent next with 8. MHS scored 4 and Goddard 3.

MHS scored all but one of its points at No. 1 doubles as the defending 4A state champions Emily Ediger and Camry Holle won all their matches.

MHS’ other point game at No. 2 singles from Madison Hoffman, who was 1-2.

Riley Burhart played No. 1 singles, while Caroline May and Ashley Venable played No. 2 doubles. Both entries were 0-3.

The Bullpups host their second invitational of the season on Saturday.
