Both Longhorn and Bronco fans were entertained with some spirited volleyball as the two varsity teams battled last Thursday on the Chase County court.
Despite dropping the first game, Chase County came back to win the match in four, 20-25, 25-16, 25-21 and 25-20.
The loss was just the second of the season for the Lady Broncos. Chase County is 7-3 this week.
It was somewhat of a lackluster first game for Chase County as they struggled with hitting and Wauneta/Palisade led by as many as eight points.
“We didn’t hit well that first game,” said CCS Coach Jodie Schuller.
She said that may have been due a bit to the emotional night, as the team memorialized former Chase County player Amanda Poppe Johnson in a short program before the varsity match.
However, the team came back after the first game loss, though slowly, to win the second outing by nine.
Chase County trailed for the first part of the second game, and didn’t pull ahead until after a 10-10 tie when they scored four straight, two of those points on W/P errors.
The home team never trailed again, closing out that second game with five straight points.
