Chickasha volleyball struggles at El Reno


A slow start to the season continued for Chickasha volleyball, as they dropped all four of their matches at the El Reno tournament over the weekend.

"We played well in spurts, but just could not sustain it throughout the day," head coach Nancy Waters said.

The Lady Chicks kept it close in their first match, falling to Guymon 25-18, 21-25. That was followed by a 25-22, 25-14 defeat to Hennessey. 

Chickasha played its best game of the tournament in the third match against Union City. Alei Gann served for 20 straight points against the Tigers in a 25-4 drubbing. It proved to be the only game the Lady Chicks would win over the weekend, as they lost the other two 25-18 and 15-13. 

The tournament ended with a 25-21, 25-8 loss to hosts El Reno.

"We must do a better job with serves; too many service errors," Waters said.

She also said the team is not communicating the way she would like them too at this point in the season, although it is still early days.

"We did a better job communicating, but that will always be a work in progress," Waters said.

Mikala Harris led the way in the El Reno tournament for Chickasha with 11 kills. Chloe Reyes tallied 6 kills, while Malorie Mottinger contributed 5 kills. Libero Rory Troub was in fine form with 25 digs, while Kaydee King was a big contributor with 12 assists. Gann also topped the stat charts with her 10 assists in the tournament.

The Lady Chicks will try to put their struggles behind them at home to Weatherford on Monday evening.
