September 4, 2013LADY DRAGONS FALL IN 5 SETS IN JAYHAWK WEST BATTLE AT COLBY
COLBY - The Hutchinson Community College volleyball team started a six-match road trip off on a down note Wednesday night as Colby stung the 11th-ranked Lady Dragons in five sets in a big early Jayhawk West matchup.
Colby defeated the Lady Dragons 20-25, 25-
19, 25-13, 18-25, 15-10 in front of a big and raucous crowd at the Colby Community Building.
"Colby came in psyched up and ready to play," HCC coach Patrick Hall said. "Colby is a very good volleyball team and they legitimately won this match."
Hutchinson (4-2, 1-1 Jayhawk West) got 13 kills on .200 hitting from sophomore outside hitter Dragana Micic.
Sophomore Teresa Wade hit .151 and had eight kills. Freshman Nicole Kinser had six kills and Alex Keller finished with five kills.
Defensively, Wade led the Lady Dragons with 10 digs. Sophomore Samantha Lackey had nine and freshman Paige Weidner had six.
After taking the first set, the Lady Dragons were out-played by Colby (6-3, 2-0). HCC rallied to take the fourth before dropping a 15-10 decision in the fifth set. The Lady Dragons' only two losses this season have both come in five-set matches.
"It was good to see us respond like we did in that fourth set," Hall said.
Now the Lady Dragons head for Twin Falls, Idaho, for the middle four matches of this two-week road trip. HCC opens the CSI Classic on Friday with No. 3-ranked College of Southern Idaho. Hutchinson also plays North Idaho, Salt Lake and Snow College.
