The Barton Community College Volleyball team picked up a much needed conference win Wednesday night with a 3-1 victory over host Dodge City Community College. The Cougars won the first sets 25-18 and 25-8 only to have the Conquistadors scrap out a highly contested third set 28-26. Barton quickly shook off the loss to race out to an early lead in the fourth then outscore the Conquistadors 11-1 down the stretch for a 25-8 match clinching win. The victory improved the Cougars to 2-3 in Jayhawk play and 3-12 overall while keeping Dodge City winless in conference play at 0-5 and dropping to 4-13 overall.
Barton will take to the road for the second straight weekend as the Cougars will compete in the Wyo-Braska Shootout taking place Friday in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, with Saturday’s action in Torrington, Wyoming. The Cougars’ next home match is Wednesday, September 24, against Marshalltown Community College beginning at 6:30 p.m.
