Wild Rose volleyball loses to Manawa on Aug. 27

Despite the Wild Rose High School volleyball team digging out of deficits, the netters couldn’t come up with any wins over Manawa during the Aug. 27 action.

“What we saw was a big team come in, and our own girls played well with them,” stated Wild Rose Head Coach Jason Kirby. “We had the lead multiple times, but need to learn how to win—it’ll come. I love the fan base. [We] had a lot of people come out to support Ladycat volleyball, and I hope it stays that way.”

Manawa jumped out to a 4-0 lead in Game 1 with Katie Buschke serving for three consecutive points. Wild Rose was able to come back within 1, 3-4. The visitors extended their lead to 7 along the way before the hosts closed in with 3, 11-14, behind 3 consecutive service points form Hailey Soper. A lot of points in the game were gained on side outs, and Wild Rose found itself trailing 16-22, but kept Manawa from taking the game without a fight, closing in to 19-22.
