Titans hand HCHS netters third straight H-10 loss

 HARLAN (Sept. 21) -- Prolonged stretches of mistake-filled volleyball - one in each set - led to the downfall of Harlan Community in Tuesday’s Hawkeye Ten home match against Lewis Central.
 The Cyclones fell behind 8-0 in set one and 7-1 to start set two, then allowed a critical 13-1 LC run in the third after holding a 9-7 lead.
 The result was a 25-20, 25-19, 25-15 Titan sweep as HCHS lost its third straight conference match and dropped to 10-9 overall and 2-3 in league play. Lewis Central, which started the season 0-6 against very tough competition, improved to 4-9 and 2-2, respectively.
 Subpar passing coincided with the Cyclones’ roughest patches of the night, but there were also nine missed serves and 19 attack errors (against 21 kills) in just three sets.
 “We just could not get the pass, which broke down our fundamentals,” stated HCHS head coach Elle Crees. “We were super lackadaisical on the court, had a lot of missed opportunity points, and that’s what came back to bite us in the end.”
 HCHS was led by Zophi Hendricks’ seven kills and Maci Schmitz’s 10 digs, 17 assists and three aces. Claire Schmitz added three kills on just four attacks for an efficiency of .750. Savanna Musich was the team’s top passer with a serve receive average of 2.44 (out of 3.00) on 16 attempts.
