RECAP: Haskell traveled to Lindsborg, Kan., to face off against the Bethany College Swedes.
Haskell Women jumped off to a great start, quickly finishing off the Swedes with a set one win of 25-14. The next two sets weren’t as glamorous for them as they lost the second set 21-25 and losing the third set 21-25 as well. The women fought back in the fourth set, putting up a major fight to try and mount a comeback, winning the fourth set 27-25.
It came down to the fifth and final set, where the two teams fought to win the sudden death match. The Swedes jumped out to four to nothing lead and really never looked back. They eventually won the set 15- 10 and won the match with a set count of 3-2.
STATS: Alliyah Richards led the team in kills once again with a game leading 22. Amber Whitehair was a force to be reckoned with in assisting, finishing with 41. The team finished with seven blocks compared to Bethany colleges eight.
Sophia Honahni, Cailey Lujan, and Alliyah Richards all finished with over 20 digs in the match, helping to bolster our defense for the game. We finished the game with 125 digs as a team, actually the same exact amount as Bethany College.
This brings the Haskell Women’s team record to 2-12 on the season, certainly a result that the women are disappointed in.
The Women’s Volleyball will be back in action this weekend at the College
of the Ozark Tournament. on Friday, October 5, and Saturday, October 6 in Point Lookout, MO
