MMS 7th Grade Volleyball Team Fall to Maize and Andover Central in Tuesday’s Triangular

MAIZE, Kan. – The Bullpup 7th Grade Volleyball struggled in Maize on Tuesday, as they took on Maize and Andover Central in a triangular. 

The Bullpup A team moves to 9-4 following the losses, as Head Coach Shelley Bohme said, “Tonight was rough. We never could get into a rhythm against either team. Both Maize and Andover Central set the ball up and attacked more than what we’ve seen this season, and that combined with too many unforced errors made it difficult to get going offensively.” When reflecting on the positives, Bohme said, “We adjusted well to tip coverage, and had some girls had some good digs.”

The B Team would move to 9-8 overall after falling to Maize 25-22, 25-21, and 25-23, 25-16 to Andover Central.

Coach Katherine Cooper said, “The game against Maize was close! The girls played every point very well.” Cooper said, “Raegan Hancock had some great sets throughout the night. McKenna Christensen, Afton Harrington and Cali Whitenack were all able to get points on their hits and tips tonight. Kaylee Lauderdale played well at the net as well.”

Coach Cooper added, “They played smart at the net and kept the sets close! Adrienne Hueback, Kate Witte, Bailee Floyd, and Jaylinn Major received some strong serves and were consistent throughout the night. Taylen Wall had some good serves and played great! The girls put up a good fight in both games. During the second set against Andover Central, the girls made a great comeback.” Cooper concluded by saying, “I am very proud of how well the girls played.”

Both A and B teams will travel to Hays, for a tournament on Saturday.
