Saturday, September 20, 2008

OSAWATOMIE, Kan. -- Fort Scott High School's volleyball team took two of three matches as the Tigers played non-league opposition in a quadrangular here Thursday night.

The Tigers lost to Louisburg in two games but bounced back to beat Osawatomie in three and Prairie View in two.

"This was the best competition we've seen yet," Fort Scott head coach Carol Bingesser said. "I was really proud of the fact that (although) we got smoked by Louisburg, we came back in the second (match) and played really tough.

"We had some new kids step up and they played real well for us -- Megan McDermed on the left side and Britney Holt at left back. Annie (Gladbach), Sammi (Therwhanger) and Mallory (Shelton) played tough at the net. Monica (Dikeman), Courtney (Carpenter) and Britney had some great digs. Brittany (Bingesser) had some great serves and set the ball well."

Louisburg beat Fort Scott 25-6, 25-21. Shelton had four kills for Fort Scott in that match.

The Tigers beat Osawatomie, 19-25, 28-26, 25-20. Bingesser had 24 assists while Gladbach had nine kills. Shelton and Shelby Nafzger each had five kills while Therwhanger served three aces and had three kills.

The Tigers swept Prairie View, 25-20, 26-24. Bingesser had 13 assists and served a pair of aces. Gladbach had seven kills while Shelton had three.

Southeast Kansas League matches begin Thursday as the Tigers go to Parsons to face Coffeyville and the host Vikings. Play begins at 5 p.m.
