Hesston falls


to Garden Plain


HESSTON — The Hesston Swather volleyball team fell in a dual meet to Garden Plain in three sets Thursday.


Hesston fell 25-17, 25-13, 25-19.


"We faced a very solid Garden Plain team that serves and passes well and has some very athletic hitters this year," Hesston coach Jason Peters said. "We struggled with passing the first two sets and had a few communication errors, but overall we played much better than we have the past several weeks. We were able to get more touches on the block and our hitting was more aggressive with fewer errors. There were several long rallies that we just weren’t able to finish. If we can find a way to do that, we will be very competitive with the strong teams coming up on our schedule."


Garden Plain improves to 10-1. Hesston falls to 4-6. Hesston plays Tuesday at Halstead with Hoisington.
