MOUNDRIDGE — It was an up-and-down day for Moundridge’s volleyball team on Tuesday as it split in triangular action.

The Wildcats lost to Remington (23-25, 22-25) and bounced back for a tough three-setter over Berean Academy (19-25, 25-20, 25-20).

Zaelynn Foth led MHS in kills with 16, while Bethany Stucky had 11. In digs, Chelsey Knight led with 19 and Foth added 17. Lexi Lorimor also was in double figures with 12. Natalie Kaufman had 5 aces, one more than Foth.

“I didn't think we played bad against Remington, the sets were close but we didn't do what was necessary to close out the game,” Moundridge coach Kelsi Chisholm said. “I thought we were timid under pressure and needed to stay more aggressive on offense and defense.  We should have taken the opportunity to capitalize when their top hitter was in the back row, but couldn't seem to stay in those rotations for very long. We played with more intensity against Berean Academy. Although our service errors were way too high, we sided-out quicker after the missed serve. I also thought our hitters did a better job of finding the ball.”
