The Abilene Cowgirl volleyball team swept the Hays High School quad meet Thursday.
“It’s always nice to go to Hays and see some different competition,” Abilene coach Mike Jantz said. “I was pleased that we went 3-0 in straight sets.”
The Cowgirls opened the night with wins over Norton High School, 25-21, 25-19.
Hailey Devine led the Cowgirls with 15 kills and she added three aces in the first match. Jessica Hayes added 8 kills and Courtney Geist provided 32 assists against Norton.
Next the Cowgirls put away Hays High School in two sets, 25-14, 25-19.
Hayes had seven kills in the match for Abilene. Claudia Hess added three kills and a block and Geist had 22 assists in the match.
In the third and final match of the evening, the Cowgirls set down the Salina South Cougars, 26-24, 25-17.
Hayes had 15 kills, Taylor Thompson added nine kills and a block, Geist had 31 assists and four serving aces in the contest.
“Our level of play was shaky at times but we found a way to win,” Jantz said. “We have to continue to improve and eliminate errors and improve our court communication.”
“We are 18-5 and are having a pretty darn good season,” Jantz added. “We go to Wamego on Tuesday, we are going have to step up our game and eliminate errors to compete with the Red Raiders and be in the hunt for the league race.”
