MOUNDRIDGE – The Moundridge volleyball team had a strong showing on Thursday when they battled at home against Hutchinson Trinity, winning both ends of a two-match dual.

In the first match, the Lady Wildcats had to go three sets to defeat the visitors, 25-21, 23-25, 25-14 before sweeping both sets of the second match 25-13, 25-15.

“We went 2-0 on the night and played much more consistently,” noted first-year Lady Wildcat head coach Brooke Bumgarner during her post-meet reflections. “We went three sets with Trinity in the first match and struggled a little bit with passing, but after that we passed really well. In the second match we won in two sets. I am very proud of the way we played and the consistency we showed. I love the way we are improving every game we play.”

Among the individual leader in the stat sheet for the night were Kate Eichelberger with 21 kills and 17 digs, Emily Durst who scored 33 assists to go with her own 15 digs, and Aubree Durst had 14 kills and 10 digs.

The Lady Wildcats will back on the home court on Tuesday when they host a dual with Sterling.
