HUTCHINSON — In less than a week’s time, Hesston High’s volleyball team already has attained double digits in victories on the season.

By sweeping a triangular on Thursday, the red-hot Swathers are now 10-0.

Hesston defeated Minneapolis (25-9, 25-13) and Trinity Catholic (25-16, 25-16).

Against Minneapolis, Kailey Jo Ince led in kills with 10, while Alaina Dunlavy was tops in assists with 15. Cameron Denno led in aces with 4 and Kennedy Teach was the dig leader with 7.

Against Trinity, Ince had 13 more kills, while Dunlavy distributed 18 assists. Denno had 5 more aces and Ince was tops in digs with 5.

“This was a great serving night for us, with only two missed serves out of 98 total for the evening,” Hesston coach Jason Peters said. “Our serving kept both opponents out of system quite a bit, which gave us good opportunities for good attacks and we had a high efficiency both matches.”

It’s been an amazing start for Hesston, but Peters said there’s a long way to go.

“I have been pleased with the way we have been able to keep our composure as a team and not get rattled when we dig ourselves a hole, but we will need to avoid putting ourselves in that situation to be successful against some very good teams in the next two weeks.”

Hesston goes to Smoky Valley on Tuesday. Cheney is the third team in the triangular.
