OSWEGO – The Altoona-Midway High School volleyball squad fell in both of their matches in the Oswego Triangular held here Tuesday.

         In their opening match, the Lady Jets squared off against Uniontown for the second time in four days, and were defeated by the Lady Eagles 11-25, 2-25. AMHS also dropped a 10-25, 9-25 decision to the host Oswego Lady Indians.

         To make matters worse, the Lady Jets lost their second setter in as many matches.

         During the opening match with Uniontown, backup setter Josie Huffman injured her knee and was forced to sit out the rest of the night. Altoona-Midway was already without the services of starting setter Mariah Stackhouse, who was injured Saturday at the Uniontown Invitational.

         Regardless, the Lady Jets continued to fight throughout the evening.

         Against Uniontown, senior Michala Kinzle paced the attack with 13 digs, a kill and a block. Abi Elsesser recorded five digs, Abby Reaves notched a kill and two digs, and Huffman had an ace and a pair of digs prior to her injury.

         In the nightcap, Kinzle finished with two kills, and ace and a dig, while Summer Tarlton came up with an ace and three digs.

         Altoona-Midway (0-26) will compete in the Class 1A Volleyball Regional on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at Moran. Participating schools include AMHS, Chetopa, Colony-Crest, Leroy-Southern Coffey County, Moran-Marmaton Valley, Sedan and St. Paul.

         The top two schools at Tuesday’s regional will advance to sub-state play Oct. 20.
