ROSALIA - The Altoona-Midway High School volleyball team dropped three matches here Saturday in the Flinthills Tournament.
While there were no victories on the court for the Lady Jets, head coach Treasure Hoag said she definitely saw something to build upon as the tournament progressed.
“Overall we played the last two matches extremely well,” Hoag said. “I plan to build on this heading into the rest of the season.”
The Lady Jets were pretty flat against the host Flinthills squad in their opening match, falling 10-25, 4-25.
But Altoona-Midway rebounded to take Hartford to the limit in the first set and continued to battle the Lady Jaguars despite losing 23-25, 13-25.
Chase County also took the measure of AMHS in the finale, 14-25.
“After that first match against Flinthills, we had a long conversation in the locker room about what we needed to change,” Hoag said. “And after that, the Lady Jets played like a new and improved team. I was pleased with the way the girls responded.”
Against Flinthills, Michala Kinzle had a kill and three digs, Mariah Stackhouse had three digs, and Summer Tarlton had an ace and a dig.
In the Hartford match, Kinzle notched four kills, a block and two digs. Natalie Davis recorded three aces while Stackhouse, Josie Huffman and Bailey Graham added one apiece, and Tarlton and Huffman each collected two digs.
Against Chase County, Stackhouse had a five-serve run to start the game and notched four digs, while Kinzle had a pair of kills and three digs.
Altoona-Midway was scheduled to be back in action Tuesday at Northeast-Arma. Saturday the Lady Jets travel to Humboldt.
