Cassville falls in district play
The Cassville Lady Wildcats' 2012 volleyball season ended with a 25-17, 25-10 loss to Hollister in the quarterfinals of the Class 3, District 11 tournament on Oct. 22.
"Hollister is a very good team," said Cassville coach Jennifer Nichols. "We struggled with their front line height. I was proud of the way we battled, but they are a tough team."
The Lady Wildcats never found rhythm on the offensive side of the net.
Hollister jumped out to a 12-4 lead in the first set and held on for the 25-17 win.
The Lady Wildcats took a 2-0 lead in the second set, but hitting errors proved to be their undoing.
The Lady Tigers responded with a 16-3 run to take control of the contest, and they coasted to a 25-10 victory.
"This season was about growing and getting better," said Nichols. "We have four juniors and a sophomore returning next season. We need to keep playing in the off-season and get stronger."
Lindsay Nolan led the Lady Wildcats with eight digs, three assists and one kill.
Ashley Krallman and Rhiannon Miller finished with one kill and one ace apiece.
Cassville finished the season 2-16-5.
