Volleyball secures Jayhawk West title with win over Cloud

The Barton Community College volleyball team bounced back from its first conference loss last week to sweep Cloud County Community College tonight at the Barton Gym 25-16, 25-14, and 25-22.  With the victory the Lady Cougars clinched the outright Jayhawk West Division title with one match remaining on Wednesday against Seward County Community College while also securing the number one seed in next week’s Region VI Championships.   Barton improves to 12-1 in conference play and 24-11 while Cloud drops to 1-12 in conference play and 5-27 overall.  

“It was good to see the team rebound from last week’s loss to Colby and win the title tonight,” said Head Coach Patrick Hall. “Although it wasn’t our best performance of the year, we had a few bright spots especially in the performance of Taylor Littleton and at times with some of our other players.  I thought she (Littleton) had one of her best overall nights with a solid defensive effort of getting blocks and a career high in kills.”

The Lady Cougars will face Seward County Community College for the third time this season on Wednesday beginning at 6:30 p.m.   Admission is free but fans are asked to bring items for care packages to be sent to American troops in Afghanistan.  For a complete list of items please visit the Barton Sports website.
