With four wins and one loss, the Marion volleyball team claimed second place at the Belle Plaine round robin tournament Saturday.
Marion defeated Attica (25-18, 25-22), Belle Plaine (25-19, 25-14), Medicine Lodge (25-15, 25-9) and South Barber (25-13, 25-6). Wichita Trinity handed the Warriors? their only loss of the day (25-11, 25-21).
?We have a hard time rising up to where our true competitive level is at, and we tend to stick to a lesser level that matches our opponents,? coach Brady Hudson said. ?While we did get second at the Belle Plaine tournament, the girls and I are not too pleased with that placing. They did play well, but not well enough to have a fighting chance against some of the teams in our sub-state. Hopefully we can get out of our funk and consistently play our game.?
Inman?Marion split two games Tuesday. Remington defeated the Warriors (25-16, 25-18), then Marion responded with a 2-0 victory over the host school (25-21, 25-18).
