Dominating throughout, the Lady Plainsmen beat Garden County in two short sets Friday evening, Oct. 30 at home.
Originally scheduled as a triangular, the third team, Bayard, dropped out due to inclement weather and poor travelling conditions.
“I am just glad Garden County weathered the storm so we could play our last home game and finish our season on a great note,” said Coach Penny Hite.
Returning with a vengeance after a two-week illness, senior Mackenzie Hite had a nearly flawless serving night, hitting 24 of 24 with 10 ace serves, putting 14 points up before Garden County answered.
Also back from illness was Tori Osler.
“It’s good to have a full team again,” said Hite.
“Matisyn Humphrey played well outside and Shalee Pollard did a really good job stepping in for Jenni Sis while she bounces back from a tweaked ankle.”
The Lady Plainsmen finished their regular season games with a 19-8 record.
