Lady Plainsmen go toe-to-toe with Longhorns
By Tim Linscott
Every time Chase County thought they had the game over, the Lady Plainsmen would rally.
Facing Chase County at home on Oct. 10, the Lady Plainsmen volleyball squad lost in three sets, 11-25, 19-25, 6-25.
“We had a lot of fight in the second set and ran our offense well,” said Penny Hite, head volleyball coach at Perkins County. “We threw off the CC defense and had them scrambling. I was pleased with our play.”
The Lady Plainsmen had some issues with serving and passing in the third set, which led to the loss.
“We missed serves and had too many passing errors that didn’t allow us to work on our offense,” Hite said. “If we can play every set like the second set, we will start to see a huge difference in our team standing.”
Hite said the team had great crowd support, which helped urge the players on and gave them extra motivation.
Courtney McClenahan had seven kills, six blocks (one ace) and six assists with one ace on the night. She went 5 for 5 passing.
Courtney Ostermiller had six kills on the night and was 3 for 3 passing.
Steph Schrotberger had nine assists to lead the Lady Plainsmen. Lila Konecky, Allison Kiolbasa and Rebecca Johnson each had two kills. Johnson also had seven blocks (two aces) against the Longhorns.
Konecky picked up an ace serve in the game.
