HESSTON — It was dual action for Hesston High’s volleyball team on Tuesday and the Swathers needed only the minimum three sets to come away with a victory.

The Swathers defeated Hoisington 25-14, 25-7, 25-16 and are now 18-2 on the season, 7-1 in the Central Kansas League.

“We had our ups and downs throughout the night and struggled to keep our energy going throughout, but had some nice moments in both matches where we showed improvement from the previous weeks,” Hesston coach Jason Peters said. “Our passing on serve receive is getting a little more consistent and we were able to serve more aggressively. Hitting was a strong area for us again this match, with over 50 percent of our attacks resulting in kills.”

The Tigers are going to be busy in the coming days.

“We have a tough stretch coming up, playing Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday the next two weeks, with two strong tournaments that should help us see where we are at and what we need to continue to focus on as we approach the end of the regular season,” Peters said.

Kailey Jo Ince and Mia Loganbill led in kills with 12 and 10, respectively. Alaina Dunlavy quarterbacked the offense with 32 assists. Loganbill had a fine serving night with 7 aces, while Ince led in digs with 13.

Hesston goes to Southeast of Saline on Thursday.
