Behind the play of its freshmen, the No. 15-ranked Barton Community College volleyball team swept Pratt in Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference action on Wednesday night 25-15, 25-15 and 25-21.
With the win, the Lady Cougars improve to 10-4 overall, 5-0 in the conference.
“Pratt played really good defense, which caused us to have to adjust our offensive attack,” Barton head coach Patrick Hall said. “It was a game where defenses matched each other, and we were able to stay patient enough for our offense to kick in. But give Pratt credit. They gave us problems we had to adjust to.”
Barton will face another tough weekend ahead as they travel to Scottsbluff, Neb., to compete in the Wyo-Braska Classic.
The Lady Cougars will play on Friday against Eastern Wyoming College at noon. Then they will face top-ranked and defending NJCAA Division-I Champion Western Nebraska Community College at 4 p.m.
On Saturday, the Lady Cougars will play Sheridan College at 10 a.m., and then wrap up the tournament against Northwest College at 2 p.m.
