The H-BC girls’ volleyball team lost to Edgerton Public 3-0 at home Tuesday, Sept. 5 and went 3-6 at the Luverne Tournament Saturday, Sept. 9.
“H-BC played absolutely phenomenal against Edgerton Public, they played well against Adrian too but ran out of steam against Windom and Luverne,” Zylstra said.
The Patriots were scheduled to travel to Westbrook Walnut Grove Tuesday, Sept. 12 and Mountain Lake Thursday, Sept. 14.
Edgerton 3, H-BC 0
The Hills-Beaver Creek volleyball team hosted Edgerton Public Tuesday, Sept. 5.
The Patriots fell to the Flying Dutchmen 25-22, 25-21 and 25-21 in three close games.
“Overall, I thought they did a lot of good things,” head coach Meghan Zylstra said.
“Our defense took a while to shift correctly and was a little slow at times but they hung right in there.”
H-BC was able to keep close and even take a lead in a few games but Edgerton’s hitters laid down some spikes the Patriots could not handle to take the lead back.
Freshman Brynn Bakken went seven of eight serving with one ace, had seven kills and five blocks.
Olivia Deelstra, a freshman, was seven of nine serving with one acr, had seven kills and one block.
Senior Lanae Elbers was five of six serving with one ace. Elbers had eight kills and three blocks for the Patriots.
Senior Larissa Steinhoff left late the third game with an injury to her lower leg.
Steinhoff was seven for seven serving with one ace and five kills.
Senior Brynn Rauk went eight of nine serving with four aces, five digs, one kill and 12 set assists.
Sophomore Abbie Harris was nine of nine serving with two aces, had seven digs and 10 set assists.
Senior Grace Anderson had 13 digs and sophomore Claire Knobloch had eight digs.
H-BC traveled to Luverne Saturday, Sept. 9 for a five-team tournament.
Zylstra said the Patriots didn’t keep team or individual stats for the games.
The Patriots won their first game against Edgerton 2-0, went 1-2 against Adrian and lost 0-2 to Windom and Luverne.
“They had to play four games back-to-back with no break, and that definitely worked against us at the end,” Zylstra said.
