BLHS volleyball splits matches on Senior Night
The Basehor-Linwood volleyball team split a pair of matches on Senior Night Tuesday.
Following Senior Night ceremonies to honor Courtney Poe, Macyn Sanders and Shelby Equels, Basehor-Linwood lost to Blue Valley Southwest in three games.
Blue Valley Southwest won the first game 25-17. In the second game, Basehor-Linwood won 25-11.
“The second game we played was some of the best volleyball that we have played in a long time,” coach Tammy Zydlo said.
However, the Bobcats were unable to maintain that level of play in the third game, losing 25-22.
With the score tied 22-22, Blue Valley Southwest took the lead when a Basehor-Linwood player hit the ball into the net. Blue Valley Southwest scored the next two points to win the match.
“In the Blue Valley Southwest match, toward the end we made some errors at critical times,” Zydlo said.
She said the team will need to eliminate these errors to win close matches in the future.
Poe led the team with seven kills. Brandi Stahl and Sydne Eriksen each had five kills. Samantha Rutherford had four kills and Cara McCarty had two kills.
In the final match of the night, Basehor-Linwood defeated Turner, 25-16, 25-21.
Stahl led the Bobcats with six kills. Poe and McCarty each had five kills and Rutherford recorded four kills.
The team missed five serves and recorded two aces in the match.
The Bobcats were in control of the first game throughout.
In the second game, the Bobcats showed an ability to finish. Late in the match, McCarty recorded a kill and then Poe recorded back-to-back aces. Turner made an unforced error and the Bobcats led 24-20.
The teams traded points as Basehor-Linwood won the match.
BLHS is now 10-12 this season.
