HERINGTON — Canton-Galva’s volleyball team captured fourth place Saturday in the Herington Invitational, though it played well enough to win several more matches.

The Eagles went 1-2 in pool play, with the win coming against Herington (25-15, 25-16). They lost a pair of tough three-setters to Council Grove (17-25, 25-21, 21-25) and Centre (25-14, 20-25, 25-27).

In bracket play, Canton-Galva was defeated by Rural Vista (21-25, 25-23, 26-25) and Council Grove (24-26, 19-25).

“We competed very well this weekend, as two of our losses came in hard-fought battles with 3A state-ranked Council Grove,” C-G coach Jenny Loyd said. “As a team, we have battled several injuries and illnesses this past week and were still able to go toe-to- toe against tough opponents and advance out of pool play. We dug deep and I was pleased of our competitive spirit.”
