HARTINGTON — Compared to their normal weeks of competition through the season, the LCC volleyball team had a light load last week.
With no weekend tournament, the only match the girls had to play was against Hartington Public last Tuesday.
The light diet of competition didn’t exactly mean it would be easy to digest. The Lady Bears had to use four sets to finish off the Lady Wildcats. LC/C started strong, but then dropped the second set.
In a fit of frustration, the Lady Bears flexed their muscles and only let HPS score seven points in the third match. The ride wasn’t over yet as the Lady Bears let HPS score 22 in the final set.
Amy Pritchard, Jade Cunningham, and Mandy Nelson were the core of the offensive attack. Pritchard put down 15 kills, while Nelson tacked on another 13. Cunningham lofted 22 set assists and punched out four ace serves.
Defensively, Dani Huss led the Lady Bears with three blocks and Cunningham, Nelson and Audrey Kastrup each had 12 digs in the match.
The LC/C Lady Bears were set to play in Laurel Tuesday evening against Elkorn Valley. Final scores and stats were not available at press time.
Thursday, the Lady Bears will travel to Neligh-Oakdale for their second NENAC match of the week. Games start at 5:30 p.m.
