Hesston splits CKL duals


LYONS — The Hesston High School volleyball team split a pair of Central Kansas League matches Tuesday at Lyons.


Hesston fell to Lyons 25-17, 28-26; and beat Haven 25-16, 23-25, 25-20.


"We struggled to find our rhythm tonight, after a two-week break from the last time we played a match," Hesston coach Jason Peters said. "We weren’t as aggressive as we needed to be against Lyons and they took advantage of the opportunities we gave them. We played better in the second set and had a lead late, but weren’t able to put enough plays together to finish. Against Haven, we had a relatively easy time in the first set, but Haven played much better in the second set and we made too many errors. We had a large lead in the third set and were able to hold on to finish out the match."


Hesston is 4-5, 1-2 in league play, and hosts Garden Plain at 5 p.m. Thursday, followed by CKL play Tuesday at Halstead with Hoisington.


"Our schedule doesn’t get any easier in the next couple of weeks, so we will have plenty of opportunities against strong competition to push ourselves to step out of our comfort zones and rise to the next level," Peters said.
