In a triangular on Tuesday at Haven, the Pratt High School volleyball team swept the host Wildcats, but dropped a 3-setter to Douglass.

The match against Douglass started out well, Pratt taking the first set 25-22. But the Bulldogs turned things around and won the final two sets 13-25; 19-25.

"We played well the first set against Douglass," PHS head coach Summer Younie observed. "But the second and third sets, we just couldn't pass the ball."

"Like we REALLY couldn't get a pass," Younie emphasized. "I know the girls were frustrated, but, man, we just couldn't get a good ball to the setter."

For Pratt, Kierson Maydew had 9 kills; Rheagan Hoover 7. Maydew had 6 blocks, with Kyra Johnson, Hoover and Madison Craft each contributing 3.

Makenzie Baird had 5 digs and 7 receives on defense; Johnson had 9 receives and Keiara Kaufman 8.

The finale against the Wildcats was a pretty evenly played affair, the Greenbacks getting the better of it in set one 25-21; then hanging on for dear life to grab set two 25-23.

"Against Haven, we played just well enough the first set to win," Coach Younie said.  "The second set we came out a lot more fired up and were ahead 7 or so points, thank goodness, because Kierson Maydew came down on another player's foot and sprained her ankle.  The very next play Kaitlyn Rasmussen came down on a foot and sprained her ankle.  We managed to get the win, just barely 25-23."

Rheagan Hoover attacked well for Pratt, recording 8 kills. Kierson Maydew had 4. Hoover was also big at the net, with 5 blocks. Maydew added 4 and Kaitlyn Rasmussen 4 as well before departing with injuries.

Setter Allisan McGowan had 10 assists.

Service aces were recorded by four different players: Kyra Johnson, Maydew, Jenna Fincham and McGowan.

Kyra Johnson did good work on the back line, with 5 digs and 8 service receives. Keiara Kaufman, Abby Lloyd and Makenzie Baird each had 4 receives.

Lady Green will be heading west twice later this week, with a quad on Thursday in Garden City with Hays and Ulysses; and then the Liberal Tournament on Saturday.
