Uniontown takes three wins at Riverton

Saturday, September 17, 2011

RIVERTON, Kan. -- Uniontown's volleyball team swept through a quadrangular here Thursday night, taking down three bigger schools.

"We always enjoy going to this quad," Uniontown head coach Jackie Hall said. "We get to see some very competitive teams that we don't normally see. We played well; not as intense as I had hoped but the girls pulled together and worked through some adversity."

The Eagles (10-2) began the evening with a sweep of Class 4A Columbus, 25-21, 25-16. Hayden Rathbun led with 5 kills while Hope Jurgensen had 4. Tayler Shook handed out 17 assists and Hannah Travis recorded 2 blocks.

"We struggled early with our serve receive," Hall said. "We were down by 6 and in rally scoring, sometimes that's hard to come back from. But the team turned things around and got the job done."

Uniontown swept Riverton, 25-16, 25-13. Ashley Neitfeld had 8 kills and 2 blocks. Shook dealt out 23 assists.

The Eagles finished the night by sweeping Galena, 25-9, 25-16. Jessica Murrow served 6 aces. Rathbun had 7 kills and 3 blocks. Shook recorded 12 assists.

Uniontown will step back into Three Rivers League play Tuesday when it goes on the road to Arma to face defending champion Northeast, the host, and St. Paul.
