Lady Mustangs Unsuccessful on the Road

Kate Baker

October 02, 2019

 

The Mustangs faced a tough road schedule last week, facing the Lawrence-Nelson Raiders and competing in a tournament on Saturday, taking on Clarkson-Leigh, Mead, and Red Cloud. On Thursday, the junior varsity team fell to the Raiders in two sets, but put up a tough fight, pushing the Raiders to 26-24 in the first set. Unfortunately, the varsity team was defeated by the Raiders as well, falling in three sets. The Mustangs got off to a slow start in the first set, which helped the Raiders secure a 25-13 win. In the second set, the Mustangs battled back, with freshman Brooklyn Meyer leading the surge with 5 kills and a .417 hitting percentage. Despite the fight, the Mustangs dropped the second set 25-20 and the third set 25-8. Sophomore Katelyn Karr led on the defensive side picking up 9 digs, followed closely behind by junior Madison Miller and sophomore Amanda Ehrman with 7 and 6 respectively. 

Starting off on Saturday, the Mustangs faced a tough Clarkson-Leigh team falling 25-21 and 25-19 in a two set loss. Katelyn Karr kept the Mustangs alive, picking up 21 digs for Ehrman to get the offense running with 8 assists. She found freshman Georgi tenBensel on the outside, who led the team with 8 kills. Senior Makayla Dinkler tallied 2 ace serves for the match. Next, the Mustangs took on undefeated Mead; the Raiders defeated the Mustangs in 2 sets, winning 25-18 and 25-12. Dinkler led the team on offense, putting away 6 kills and tallied 2 blocks on the defensive side. Katelyn Karr contributed defensively, leading the team in digs with 10, and Ehrman and junior Kerigan Karr each aided the team with 6 assists. To end the day, the Mustangs battled the Warriors from Red Cloud for the second time this season. Silver Lake took charge right away downing the Warriors 25-14 and 25-15. Some of the Mustangs’ success came because of tenBensel’s 8 kills and Dinkler’s 5 kills. Kerigan Karr led the team with 14 assists, while tenBensel and Katelyn Karr tallied 11 digs each. The Mustangs took fifth place in the tournament.
