RICHMOND — Uniontown High’s Eagles had a tough go of it at Saturday’s Central Heights High Invitational volleyball tournament.
“We had a day of constant adjustments on the court,” said Jackie Hall, Uniontown head coach. The Eagles went 2-3 in the tournament.
Uniontown was hit by illness and other commitments, which limited its lineup options during the day. Hall said the Eagles ran some lineups that they hadn’t worked on but team members responded well and did their best.
Osawatomie defeated Uniontown 25-18, 25-21 to open play Saturday. Candice Clayton and Jessica Schaaf each had four service points. Jacy Ermel delivered nine kills.
Uniontown bounced back with a 25-8, 25-9 win over Cair Parvel. Jessie Camac, Ermel and Tayler Shook each served eight points. Ermel had six kills and Camac had four kills.
Girard decked the Eagles 25-19, 25-14. Camac served five points and Ermel had nine kills.
The Eagles recorded a 25-18, 25-14 win over Erie. Schaaf served nine points for Uniontown. Ermel put down nine kills at the net and Camac had six kills.
Olathe Metro got past Uniontown 25-15, 23-25, 26-24. Shook served 12 points and Ermel pounded down 10 kills. Camac had two kills and Schaaf had one kill.
“Jessie, Jessica and Jacy stepped up on the front row and attacked well,” Hall said. “The girls worked extremely hard in the Girard and Metro matches. We just came up short.”
Uniontown finished out regular season play against Marmaton Valley and Pleasanton at Moran Tuesday. The Eagles now will prepare for Class 2A substate tournament play at Pittsburg.
Crest was slated to play at Central Heights. No report was received on the Lady Lancers’ play.
