MOUNDRIDGE — The Hesston Swather volleyball team swept a triangular Tuesday in Moundridge.

Hesston downed Conway Springs 25-17, 25-8; and Moundridge 25-22, 25-17.

Against Conway Springs, Talby Duerksen had eight kills, followed by Elise Kaiser with five. Harley Ferralez served five aces, followed by Duerksen with four. Kaiser had nine digs. Celbi Richardson set 15 assists.

Against Moundridge, Duerksen had 14 kills, followed by Kaiser with seven. Richardson served three aces. Richardson had 11 digs, followed by Kaiser with 10. Olivia Lais set 10 assists, followed by Richardson with nine.

“We struggled to get into a consistent rhythm the whole evening, as our passing and defense was not what it had been on Saturday," Hesston coach Jason Peters said. "We fell behind early to Conway Springs, but were able to pull ahead with some good serving and better attacks as the match went on. Moundridge has some strong passers and solid hitters, and we battled back and forth with them in the first set. We pulled ahead 21-15 before they made a run to tie the set at 22, and then we were able finish the match with several kills. Our second set was a bit more consistent, but we need to find a way to bring the focus and intensity every match that we will need the rest of this season.”

Hesston is 6-2 and faces Minneapolis and Hutchinson Trinity Thursday at Hutchinson.

Moundridge topped Conway Springs 23-25, 25-15, 25-16.

"We did a lot of good things last night, but we still have a lot we need to work on," Moundridge coach Hollister Carter said. "It will take some time for everything to gel together and we will continue to work hard to get there."
