The Hesston College volleyball team placed seventh Saturday at the Hesston Invitational.

The Larks finished 0-3 in pool play, falling to Dodge City Community College 25-15, 25-15, 25-16. Brookhaven College 23-25, 25-14, 25-11, 25-16 and Allen County Community College 27-25, 25-15, 25-17.

In the seventh-place match, Hesston beat Labette County Community College 21-25, 25-20, 25-22, 25-14.

Brookhaven, ranked second in the National Junior College Athletic Association Division III poll, downed Butler Community College, ranked third in Division II in the championship match 24-26, 25-20, 25-21, 25-14.

Otero Junior College downed Dodge City in four games for third place. Highland Community College downed Allen County for third place.

“Kory Hiebert continues to dominate at the net for our team,” Hesston coach Vanessa Schroeder said. “I was pleased with the dramatic service reception this weekend. Sarah Masenthin was a huge factor in that. Krystal Hathaway came in off the bench in our last match to contribute in passing and defense and created great offensive options with her consistency.”

Hesston is 7-10 and hosts the Tabor junior varsity at 7 p.m. today.
