Hesston spikers swept

HILLSBORO — The Hesston High School volleyball team dropped a pair of matches Tuesday at Hillsboro.

Hesston fell to Cheney 25-13, 25-8; and Hillsboro 25-17, 11-25, 25-16 in Central Kansas League play.

“We struggled to match the speed of Cheney’s offense and we were a step slow for much for

much of the match,” Hesston coach Jason Peters said. “We did not pass well and it was difficult to get anything going offensively. Cheney was able to take advantage of the opportunities we gave them and they make many errors or give us many chances to find our rhythm.

“Against Hillsboro, we played much better, but just had several serve receive rotations where we struggled to get good passes off Hillsboro’s strong servers. The second set was one of the best sets we have played this season, as we served aggressively, passed well, and had 11 kills out of 20 attempt with just 2 errors. We had a lot of glimpses of the potential our team has throughout this match, and we look forward to finding more consistency and confidence in the

coming weeks.”

Hesston is 8-5 and is off until Sept. 21, when the Swathers play at Haven with Lyons.

In the second match, we won in two 25-13, 25-15. I am very proud of the way we played and the consistency we showed last night and I love the way we are improving every game we play.”
