Lady Broncos take unbeaten MHC to five sets, beat DCS
With only two weeks until the RPAC conference tournament and three weeks until sub-districts, the Wauneta-Palisade volleyball team split games with Dundy County-Stratton and Maywood/Hayes Center.
Though WP got the win at DCS, the first set was a close one.
The Broncos trailed 10-12. DCS also held a 22-23 lead before Payton Yearous closed out the set with an ace.
The second set was close, as well, until a serving run by Alexa Sandman gave WP a five point advantage, 16-11. The Broncos won the set 25-19.
Yearous started WP off with a five-point run to begin the third set. A. Sandman added another nice serving run as the Broncos cruised to a 25-12 win.
WP coach Terra Higgins credited the Tigers for being scrappy on defense.
“They did well out of system and always found a way to send an aggressive ball,” Higgins said. “I thought our girls did a good job adjusting to their hitters and block. It was a good win for us going into the MHC game.”
Haylee Sandman had 13 kills to lead WP. Cali Cox also finished in double figures with 11 kills.
