The Crest volleyball team hit the road on Tuesday to compete at Madison against Moran and Hartford in a quadrangular meet. 

The Lady Lancers went 3-0 , after first defeating Marmaton Valley with final scores of 25-21, 23-25 and 25-13. The matchup included two wins for Crest and a lone loss in the second set to force a third tiebreaker set. 

“We got rattled in the second match and Moran played their game. It was a great test for us to bounce back and win the third match,” said Crest head coach Abigail Hermreck. 

The next matchup pitted Crest against Hartford in which the Lady Lancers won in two sets, 25-9 and 25-10. Crest’s service record was almost spotless, with only two that missed their marks.

Crest was able to outduel Madison in the last couple of sets, 25-20 and 25-16. Lady Lancer seniors McKenna Hammond, Allyssa Adams and Kamryn Luedke as well as freshman Kinley Edgerton each served a perfect 100% against Madison. That included 10 ace serves against the Bulldogs. 

“It was a great night of volleyball for us. We knew going in that Moran would be fired up to play us and that Madison would be tough. I felt like the girls stayed determined and picked each other up,” said Hermreck. 

In total, Hammond served 25/29 and led the Lady Lancers with nine aces, 21 digs and an 83% serve receive passing rate. Adams served 10/11 balls with five aces and eight digs. Senior Kamryn Jones went 11/13 for an 85% serve rate while also hitting five aces and three digs. 

Edgerton led Crest with a 93% serve rate on 13/14 serves. After the Madison meet, Crest is now 7-1 on the season. 

The Crest varsity volleyball team will play at the Iola Invitational on Saturday. Action begins at 9 a.m.
