Bobcats 7th at Lansing Invitational
There was little doubt the Basehor-Linwood volleyball team was in the toughest pool to start the Lansing Invitational Saturday at LHS.
Tournament champion Lansing, third-place match winner Olathe Northwest and fifth-place match winner De Soto all hailed from the Bobcats’ pool. For their part, the Bobcats closed out the tournament with a victory against Shawnee Mission North in the seventh-place match.
The difficulty of competition had plenty to do with Basehor-Linwood’s 2-4 record at the tournament and masked what at times was a solid performance by the Bobcats.
They played one of their best matches of the tournament in a 25-22, 25-22 loss to Lansing. They also took down Class 6A opponent Shawnee Mission West 25-16, 26-24.
Basehor-Linwood’s final victory of the day came in a hard-fought 29-25, 25-17, 25-16 victory against Class 6A Shawnee Mission North.
