WICHITA — Bethany College’s volleyball team might be just 1-10 overall, but it’s a team you better not overlook.

The Swedes took KCAC contender Friends to the limit on Wednesday before losing the deciding set, 15-12. Bethany had won sets 2 and 3 before the Falcons charged back.

The loss spoiled an amazing effort by the Swedes’ Azucena Duarte, who tied the Bethany record for kills in a match with 26. Conner Stolley was relentless with her hustle, picking up 35 digs.

Bethany will try for its first KCAC win on Friday when it hosts Oklahoma Wesleyan at Hahn Gym.
