Hesston,?Halstead?split?at SterlingSTERLING — The Hesston and Halstead volleyball teams each claimed a double-dual split Tuesday in Central Kansas League play at Sterling.?Hesston downed Halstead 25-20, 25-20; but lost to Hillsboro 25-22, 26-25, 26-18.

Hillsboro downed Sterling 25-14, 25-9.?“We came into tonight tied with Hillsboro for the league lead, with Halstead one match back,” Hesston coach Jason Peters said. “We started a bit slow in the first set against Halstead, but were able to find a few points in a row at the end to finish the set. In the second set, we took an early lead and held on to finish. There was not a lot of flow to the match, as there were several delays that took both teams out of their rhythm.?“The Hillsboro match was another great battle. This is the fifth we have met up with them this season, and every match has been competitive, with four of the five going to three sets, but we have not been able to get a win against them. The first set was back and forth, and we had a lead at 20-19, but a few errors gave Hillsboro the set. In the second set, we played aggressively and got out to an early lead and continued to build on it throughout. We started with an early lead in the third set, but Hillsboro came back on the next server and we had to play from behind the rest of the way. We never caught up, but had some great plays during that stretch that might have given us the momentum if we could have caught a few more breaks along the way. It was a disappointing end for us after a great effort from both teams.”?For Hesston against Halstead, Caylee Richardson had 16 kills, followed by Ali Jost with eight and Kelsey Unruh with five.
