LARNED — The Larned High School volleyball team struggled in its home quadrangular on Tuesday evening.
The Lady Indians were unable to secure the second win after winning Game 1 in two of their three matches.
“We didn’t play well together,” Larned head coach Sandy Lucas said. “We didn’t move well as a team against Cunningham. That was a match that I expected us to win.
“We did a little better against Kiowa County.”
Larned made short work of Pretty Prairie in the first match of the day, winning 25-17, 25-21.
Against Cunningham, the Lady Indians cruised to a 25-18 win in the first game, before dropping a close second game, 26-24.
The Lady Wildcats jumped ahead 5-0 in the third game on their way to a 25-18 win.
Larned was able to secure a 25-23 win over Kiowa County before the Lady Mavericks ran away with the match, winning 25-9, 25-17.
Lucas said that she saw things to work on, but that her team has been doing well improving as the season starts.
“As far as moving together, they are doing a better job of that,” Lucas said. “We have to work on blocking and hitting. These girls can’t shy away from the ball.
“Serving killed us tonight. We need to be serving at least 85 percent, and I know we were no where near that.”
Larned travels to Hoisington on Thursday for a Mid-Central Activities Association quadrangular, starting at 4 p.m.
