The Colman-Egan Volleyball team has been going through a little bit of a mid-season rough patch; losing every match they have played since September 26th when they defeated Dell Rapids St. Mary until defeating both DeSmet and Castlewood this Saturday at the DVC Tournament.
The week started with a three set loss to Bridgewater-Emery on Monday night in Emery. B-E took the sets by scores of 25-20, 25-14, and 25-17, to earn the match victory.
Tori Nelsen led the Hawks with seven kills with Baylee Groos picking up four.
Then the Hawks took to their home court to face off with Baltic on Tuesday, falling in three sets again, 25-21, 25-18, and 26-24.
Nelsen led the team on offense once more, this time with eight kills, while Groos picked up four more kills for Colman-Egan.
Thursday’s home match versus Lake Preston was tight all the way to the end but the Divers were able to get the better of Colman-Egan in three sets.
The Divers took the first set 25-21 before defeating the Hawks in the second set 25-22 and in the third 25-20. The loss dropped the Hawks record to 5-15, while it improved the Divers record to 5-14 on the season.
Nelsen picked up eight more kills for Colman-Egan, while Zoey Neises picked up five kills and Hailey Harms led with 27 digs.
The Hawks then took part in the Dakota Valley Conference Tournament on Saturday in Castlewood where they went 2-2, falling to both Deubrook and Lake Preston in two sets but defeating DeSmet and tournament host Castlewood.
The two wins pushed the Hawks record to 7-17 on the season as they continue to look for consistency at the end of the season. They faced off with DeSmet last night, their only action this week.
