Humboldt defeats Cowgirls in three sets

Three players with perfect serving

  The Clarion-Goldfield varsity volleyball team entered a tough place to win last Thursday night in suffering a three-set loss at Humboldt. Scores were 25-20, 26-24, 25-18.

  The Cowgirls looked good early in set one, with Celeste Swanson serving up a run to keep them within striking distance. With Hope Polzin then serving, they made a 19-16 followed by Celeste making a smash over the net from the left side for 19-17. A Humboldt hit out brought the Cowgirls within a point, only to be called for four hits giving the Wildcats the ball. An out of bounds on C-G made it 21-19 Humboldt, with a hit long by the Cowgirls making it 22-19. A tap over by Maddie Disney made it 22-20, but a side out gave Humboldt another point. The Cowgirls then failed to return serve, making set point for the Wildcats. Another failed return then won the first set for Humboldt.
