Hartington Lady Cats fall to area teams

HARTINGTON — The Hartington Lady Wildcats fell to a pair of area foes during action last week.
Hartington fell in four sets to state-rated Laurel-Concord/Coleridge Tuesday night. The Lady Cats then fell to Allen Thursday.

Despite Tuesday’s loss, the Lady Cats pushed Laurel to the edge before losing in four. LCC earned the 25-18 first-set win, but Hartington came out fired up for the next set, hanging a 25-20 setback on the Black and Orange.
Laurel took an easy win in the third set, but the two teams traded point for point in the fourth set, before Laurel finally broke a 21-21 tie with a 3-1 run to earn the victory.
Michaela Dendinger paced the Hartington offense against Laurel, slamming home nine kills, while Ashley Morten led the defense with 12 digs.Hartington
Coach Julie Schreiber said her team was pretty spotty.
”We really had our ups and downs in this one,” she said. “We need to find a consistant balance.”
