Fort Scott Community College's volleyball team showed flashes of great potential in its season opener against Highland at Arnold Arena Wednesday night.

Unfortunately, more often were times when the Greyhounds lost their cohesiveness and the visiting Scotties -- who may be one of the top teams in the Jayhawk Conference-Eastern Division this season -- went away with a 25-18, 25-19, 25-13 sweep.

Game one saw the 'Hounds fall behind early but scrap back to get within 10-9 as they seemed to find a flow -- and, quite often, sophomore middle hitter Katie Van Lue. The Scotties (1-0 East, 5-0 overall) won this game mainly on their serving. A bad 'Hound serve at 22-18 gave Highland the opportunity to end the game with a pair of kills.

Game two was tied at 6-6 before things suddenly went south for the 'Hounds. The Scotties rolled off 10 consecutive points. If there was a consolation, Highland scored only one of those points on a Greyhound error.

Down 20-8, Heather Greer got a kill for the 'Hounds that generated a surge as scored 9 of the next 10 points in a run capped by two Kayla Case aces that brought Fort Scott within 21-17.

Highland bounced out to a 7-1 lead in the third game and didn't look back.

Van Lue finished the match with six kills and 7 blocks. Greer, Jessica Cook, and Kayla Tarwater each had 3 kills. Greer handed out 7 assists and Tanessa Esry had 6.
