Busters fall to Barton after weekend sweep





The Garden City Community College volleyball team lost a competitive four-set match on the road to Barton on Monday.

The Lady Broncbusters took two games to extra points in falling to the Lady Cougars, 21-25, 25-27, 27-25, 18-25.

Garden City drops to 17-13 overall and 4-5 in KJCCC play, while Barton is 8-13, 6-3.

"We really probably should have, could have won," GCCC head coach Rob Lutz said. "But Barton played well enough that they forced us into a few positions that they were able to come out on top."

The teams traded runs of points all night, with neither team able to take a commanding lead in any game. Lutz said the Busters had got a balanced effort, from everyone, and outside hitter Taylor Winchester returned from a back injury suffered last week to play in the last two games of the match.

Garden City took Barton to five sets in their previous meeting, and Lutz said Monday was a confidence-builder.

"It sets us up to continue with some confidence," he said. "Sure, we didn't come out with the W, but we do know that we're competitive and can play with anybody in our conference."

Garden City hosts Colby at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Perryman Athletic Complex.
