Lady Busters sweep Dodge in VB
By J. LEVI BURNFIN
The Garden City Community College volleyball team finished its Jayhawk Conference schedule on a high note Thursday night, sweeping past rival Dodge City in straight sets.
Despite trailing early in both the first and second sets, the Lady Broncbusters (4-10, 8-20) cruised to a 25-21, 25-21, 25-22 win over the Lady Conquistadors (1-13, 4-27) in Dodge City.
"We started out pretty slow.I think we were behind 5-1 in the first set and 5-2 in the second set," head coach Harvey Sanders said.
But in the end, the Lady Busters were able to overcome the early issues for the win.
Taylor Winchester led the team in kills with 16, while Dominique Mays chipped in 11. Chinasa Ekweariri had four blocks, and Nohelly Brown had 18 digs. Abby Rennick had a team-high 17 assists, while Katie Dominguez had 13.
The win puts the Lady Busters firmly in sixth place in the KJCCC, setting them up for a first round match in Liberal at Seward County, the No. 3 seed, on Wednesday. Before they get into the postseason, though, they will travel to Liberal for a 4 p.m. Tuesday match with Otero (Colo.) Junior College.
"It looks like we're going to line up with Seward County, and they've had our number twice," first-year coach Sanders said. "We know what we need to do to get better against them."
Seward swept past the Lady Busters in both matches the two teams played this season.
