High School


Hesston 2, Hillsboro 0

Hesston 2, Cheney 0

CHENEY — The Hesston High School volleyball team claimed a pair of wins Tuesday in Cheney.

Hesston downed Hillsboro in a Central Kansas League match 25-20, 25-15; and Cheney in a non-league match 25-22, 25-17. Cheney downed Hillsboro 23-25, 25-22, 25-15.

“We struggled at the beginning of the evening to find our rhythm, in large part due to Hillsboro’s strong serving and attacks that kept us off-balance,” Hesston coach Jason Peters said. “We fell behind 13-18 in the first set, but kept our composure and were able to chip away at the lead with some aces and

effective hitting, and went on a run to finish the set. When we were able to keep the ball in system, our hitting was very effective, with 28 kills and only eight errors.

“The Cheney match was a good battle, and we were able to pull ahead at the end of the first set. We had more hitting errors overall in the match, but served very well and played better defense overall. We jumped out to a 14-6 lead in the second set with some aces and kills and were able to comfortably finish out the match.

“We now come to the part of our schedule this year where we have an unusual two weeks off, so we will have some time to try some new options and try to build some consistency for the last 5 weeks of our season where two-thirds of our regular season matches will fall.”
