Hesston sweeps

CKL triangular

HESSTON — The Hesston Swather volleyball team claimed a pair of wins Tuesday in Central Kansas League play in Hesston.

The Swathers downed Lyons 25-20, 25-22; and Haven 25-1, 25-12. Lyons downed Haven 23-25, 25-9, 25-20.

“It was good to be back playing after a two-week break,” Hesston coach Jason Peters said. “We struggled a bit against Lyons, lacking the energy we needed to really swing the momentum our way. Both sets were close but we were able to pull ahead at the end to win. We passed pretty well, but had a lot of serving errors and our communication wasn’t as consistent as we would have liked. Against Haven, our energy was much better, and we hit and served well, with 29 kills on 51 attempts and only five errors, to go along with seven aces and a lot of other tough serves that kept them out of system. We will need to continue that energy and focus in our match with Garden Plain this Thursday.”

Hesston is 12-2, 3-0 in league play, and plays Garden Plain Thursday in a dual meet.
