PITTSBURG – The Pittsburg Purple Lady Purple Dragons hosted Labette County and Chanute in an SEK League Volleyball Triangular.

Labette County picked up their first win over Chanute, winning 2-1 in 3 sets by scores of 27-25, 23-25, 25-17. Anna Dean had 9 kills and 18 digs. Sydnie Stice recorded 8 kills while Karsyn Stewart contributed 10 digs and Shelbi Wilson added 25 assists, 2 aces and 9 digs.

In their second game of the triangular, the Lady Grizzly Volleyball team fell to host Pittsburg in 2 straight sets by a score of 22-25 and 14-25. Abby Ryan had 6 kills, 3 blocks and 12 digs while Sydnie Stice dished out 5 kills. Shelbi Wilson tagged in with 15 assists.

“Proud of my girls efforts versus Chanute.  It was a major team victory.  We were super resilient coming back in the 2nd game from 10 down., and not gaining the victory but the fight propelled us to a strong win in the 3rd set.  We did the same in the start against Pittsburg, but errored too easily and couldn’t find enough energy to push through to victory. We can’t wait to get back at it on Saturday at Cherryvale Tourney.  We’re playing good volleyball right now,” said LCHS volleyball coach Heather Wilson.

In the other match of the night, Pittsburg defeated Chanute 2-0.
