Hesston continued to update its volleyball resume with two more impressive performances.

The Swathers improved to 17-2 on Tuesday by sweeping Halstead (25-15, 25-14) and Hoisington (25-16, 25-23).

It was the beginning of a busy week for the Swathers, who play Thursday at Gypsum and then in the Garden Plain Invitational on Saturday.

• WILDCATS WIN TWO — Moundridge’s volleyball team seems to have found its rhythm.

The Wildcats scored two more victories, defeating Remington (23-25, 25-22, 25-14) and Bennington (25-20, 25-16).

• EAGLES LOSE TWO — Canton-Galva stepped up in class and dropped decisions to Sedgwick (16-25, 12-25) and Trinity Cathlolic (14-25, 12-25).

“We went up against 3A schools and although the final scores might not reflect it, we battled hard and turned in some very good stretches of volleyball against stiff competition,” C-G coach Jenny Loyd said.

Zoe Unruh led in assists with 21, while Ashley Nightingale had a perfect night serving. Cassidy Enns’ nine kills were tops, followed by Sierah Nordstrom with seven.  

• 0-2 NIGHT FOR VIKES — Hillsboro, which is going to play in the McPherson Invitational on Saturday, tuned up with a 25-14, 25-13 win over Smoky Valley.

The Vikings wound up 0-2 on the day, also losing to Nickerson (23-25, 15-25.

“We played very well against Nickerson,” Viking coach Allison O’Neil said. “We just need to finish games. As experience comes for the younger girls that will develop."

• No reports from Little River and Inman. Elyria Christian had the night off.
