Uniontown High’s Eagles collected two more wins to go to 21-2 on the season. They are no longer No. 1 ranked in Class 2A.
That’s because as of Monday when the Kansas State High School Activities Association released the classifications for 2010-2011, Uniontown High is in Class 3A.
Uniontown’s volleyball team is now ranked fifth in Class 3A. Phillipsburg (17-0), Atchinson County Community (15-0), Osage City (19-1) and Sedgwick (22-2) sit ahead of the Eagles in the Kansas Volleyball Association poll.
The Eagles’ two wins Tuesday were Three Rivers League matches. They beat Marmaton Valley 25-9, 25-13 and host Chetopa 25-13, 25-3.
“We had a good evening of volleyball as the girls really worked at playing our game,” said Jackie Hall, Uniontown head coach. “Jessica Murrow had an awesome night serving.”

“We struggled all the way around in the two matches,” said Lindsay Ermel, MVHS head coach on Tuesday’s matches. “We also had to make a new lineup on the bus going to Chetopa because we were without Hannah Endicott.”
Against Uniontown, the Wildcats got five ace serves from Maggie Meiwes and Cheyanne Miller had three ace serves and two kills. Kailey Boyd had 12 digs and Kacie Shadden had five digs.
“We did a good job of shutting down Jacy Ermel, Uniontown’s big hitter, but we couldn’t get anything going on our side of the net.”
