The Lady ‘Dogs had a tough time putting the ball on the floor, resulting in a three-set loss. The defense for Sterling was on point as they took down McPherson College on Monday night. Mac is now 3-12 on the year and 0-5 in the KCAC; the squad is in the middle of a nine-game drought.
The opening set was all Warriors as McPherson struggled to string points together; SC took the set 25-12. In the second, Mac had a comeback brewing in the late stages but had too far to travel, losing 25-22. The third set was much more even and it looked like the Bulldogs were going to make a push for a fourth set. Unfortunately, Sterling scored just enough to squeak out the win 25-22.
McPherson was led in kills by freshmen Leia Seiler and Lexi Kite; each tabbed eight kills. Kite also logged three service aces. Seiler, in her first extended action on varsity, hit a team-high .318, eight kills on 22 swings and one error.
Not a single Mac player recorded double-digit digs as Sterling hit .309 for the match.
It’s another short break for the Lady ‘Dogs as they travel to Hillsboro, Kansas for a 7:00 p.m. (CT) contest with the Tabor College Blue Jays on Wednesday.
McPherson College is a Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference member school and a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.
