Plainview Volleyball Quads Kick Off the Season

September 02, 2021

Lady Spartan at Plainview Quad

Spartan Volleyball played in the Plainview Quadrangular on August 28 to kick off the season.  The ladies battled all day and finished with a 1-3 record against some good talent. 

The Spartans took on Stuart in the first match.  Both sets were close throughout with neither team leading by more than 3 points at a time. Some unforced Spartan errors and tough defense by Stuart ended with a Spartan loss, 23-25, 20-25.  Lanie Lechtenberg served consistently all day and earned 9 points this match and Paige Drueke added 5 points with 1 ace.  Haylie Carson led the way with attacks notching 8 kills, Daydra Zeisler and Bentley Adams each added 4.  Paige recorded 20 set assists.  Defensively Amelia Hoffman had 17 digs; Daydra and Bentley both had 2 blocks.

In match two, the Spartans faced off against a perennial power in C-1 Columbus Scotus.  Boyd County used high energy in set one and used some Scotus errors to their advantage.  The set was close throughout but Scotus came out on top in set 1 and then dominated in set 2 as the Spartans struggled to produce an offense, 23-25, 9-25.  Amelia scored 5 points from the serving line. Haylie recorded 5 kills with Daydra and Amelia adding 4 and 3 respectively.  Paige recorded 9 set assists.  Bentley had 3 blocks with Leah Jockens adding 2.  Amelia had 18 digs; Haylie and Paige each added 14 digs defensively. 

The final match on the day paired the Spartans against host Plainview.  With evenly match opponents, it proved for some exciting volleyball.  Boyd County was victorious in two sets, 25-22, 26-24.  Set one saw Spartans take an early lead and hold that throughout.  Plainview made a late push pulling within 4, but BC held on to win.  Set two started with Plainview taking an early lead.  Boyd County stayed within striking distance the whole set.  At one point trailed 13-19, but kept chipping away one point at a time.  After several lead changes and ties at the end, BC came away with the win in extra points. 

Consistent serving again helped the Spartans roll offensively.  Amelia and Lanie both had 7 points from the service line with Paige adding 5.  Amelia and Daydra each had 6 kills with Haylie adding 5.  Paige recorded 18 set assists.  Haylie had 18 digs and Paige added 17.
