Hershey gets win in SPVA semi-finals rematch

    In a rematch of the SPVA conference volleyball tournament semi-finals, this time Hershey came out on top over Chase County.
    The Lady Longhorns traveled to Hershey Oct. 16, where they lost a close, four-set match to the Lady Panthers, 25-22, 21-25, 22-25 and 22-25.
    That came just three days after Chase County upset Hershey in the semi-finals of the tournament.
    Last week in their loss, Chase County had trouble on serve receive.
    “We just didn’t win the serve receive battle,” said Coach Jodie Schuller.
    She said when a team’s passes are off, the options are limited, as it makes for a difficult set to the hitters.
    “We battled but we just have to win that serve receive battle,” she said.
    It’s a snowball effect, too. When a team can’t get the side-out, they fail to get more chances to serve, she said.
    “We knew it would be a tough match,” she said.
It was disappointing, but now we move on.”
    Chase County could muster just a .093 hitting efficiency. They scored 22 kills but had 13 errors. Mallie McNair led at the net with nine kills.
