After their loss to New England, the Night Hawk volleyball team defeated Beach in three sets and took three out four from Glen Ullin-Hebron.  Alyssa Andress had a good match in the Glen Ullin-Hebron game with 11 kills.  Brianna Robinson had a good overall match versus Beach.  She led in kills with 10 and digs with nine.  She also had a block and two aces.

The Trinity, New England volleyball contest must have been quite a match as Trinity took the first two sets and New England game back to win three and four.  Trinity pulled out the win with a 15-9 verdict in the fifth set.

In an important Region 7 volleyball match, the Night Hawks took on Trinity at Trinity on Oct. 10.  The Night Hawks lost in three sets by scores of 25-11, 27-25 and 25-16.  In the second set the Night Hawks led at times 5-0 and 7-1 but could not hold off Trinity’s comeback.  Trinity’s Sarah Kerkman had 14 kills and Sarah Mayer added 12.

Leading the Night Hawks in kills were Abbie Kludt 6, Molly Holt and Brianna Robinson both had 5.   Trinity now stands undefeated in Region 7 play with an 8-0 record followed by Hettinger-Scranton and Hazen at 6-2.

I took in most of the junior high game between Hettinger-Scranton and Bowman County.  Bowman scored three touchdowns in the first half on two long runs, and one long passing score and had a 24-0 lead at half.  The Night Hawks had a hard time moving the ball, and their blocking and tackling needed work.  Midway in the fourth quarter, Bowman was leading 32-8.  I believe the junior high team finished the year with a 3-2 record.

Harding County’s volleyball team is having a good year as they stand 22-2 which includes wins over New England, 3-1, and Hettinger-Scranton, 3-0.  Bison is also doing well with a 17-4 record which includes a match over Hettinger-Scranton by a 3-2 count.
