Stanley County falls to Redfield in Three Games

By Wade Laroche

FORT PIERRE - The Stanley County Lady Buffs came up empty handed in Redfield Tuesday after a straight-set defeat.

The Lady Buffs were taken down in three sets, 25-12, 25-19 and 25-9 in their second trip to Redfield in four days.

After a lackluster performance in the opening set, the Lady Buffs had their chance to make things interesting in a second set, which showed much improved play out of the team.

Although the Lady Buffs were unable to capture the set and tie the game, the set was encouraging for the struggling team.

"We started putting things together and playing as a team, the score shows that they were working together," Stanley County coach Kylie Mundt said.

The other two sets were not as encouraging for Stanley County as Redfield was able to dispose of them easily.

"We just didn't really have any momentum and couldn't get anything going," Mundt said. "Our serving was not at its highest point and we continued to struggle at the little things,"

In a losing effort, Kelly Sweetman had six kills and three aces. Hailey Norman added three kills and three aces.

Stanley County will have an opportunity to redeem itself Saturday when it caps off Homecoming week with a triangular with Todd County and Cheyenne-Eagle Butte.

"Homecoming weeks are always a distraction to a point, but I think come Saturday the girls will get refocused and win some games by the end of the season," Mundt said.

The triangular will take place Saturday at 4:30 p.m. The triangular will also feature a Parkview pink out in which all audiences are encouraged to wear pink in recognition of breast cancer awareness month.
