Jays trounce Red Hawks in final league match-up of regular season

In their final contest of the regular season on Tuesday, Oct. 16, the Sabetha High School Lady Jays swept the Hiawatha Red Hawks.

“The girls went into the games with a great mindset and the goal was to play with all our energy all times, have fun, and just play volleyball,” said Head Coach Abby Stueve.

Sabetha dominated the first match, easily winning it in two sets — 25-10 and 25-7.

The Lady Jays won the game primarily from the service line, hitting every single serve they attempted — and nearly half as aces. Senior Trista Argabright led the way with 18 good serves, 10 of which were aces. Sophomore Melinna Schumann tallied 14 good serves with five aces, and junior Morgan Schuette had 10 good serves with four aces. Also contributing to the perfect serving efficiency were junior Kinley Schuette with four, senior Hillary Krebs with one, and junior Nikki Kuenzi with one.

Schumann led the Jays at the net, with six kills on 17 of 18 hitting. The Jays totaled 17 kills on 36 of 43 hitting.

Argabright had 12 set assists, of the team’s 17 total.

Defensively, Sabetha tallied 16 serve receive passes, led by Krebs with nine; and 27 defensive digs, led by Krebs with 12. The Jays also tallied 2.5 total blocks.

The Lady Jays won the second match in two sets — 25-16 and 25-13.

As a team, Sabetha hit 43 of 49 serves for an 87.8 percent serving efficiency. Argabright led the Jays with 13 good serves on 15 attempts, with five aces. Krebs went nine for nine, with one ace.

Offensively, Sabetha tallied 21 kills on 70 of 79 hitting. Schumann led at the net with 11 kills on 28 of 29 hitting. Kuenzi tallied four kills on 15 of 18 hitting.

Argabright tallied 13 set assists, of the team’s 21 total.

Defensively, Sabetha tallied 27 serve receive passes, led by Krebs with 13; and 54 defensive digs, led by Schumann with 19 and Krebs with 17. Sabetha totaled six blocks.

“Hiawatha is a team to be respected,” Stueve said. “This was clear when a couple of their hitters got kills against our defense.”

The Jays now look ahead to Sub-State on Saturday, Oct. 20, in Marysville.

“There is nothing, at this point in the season, that we will do in practice, etc. that will fundamentally change our team,” Stueve said. “The season and its outcome is up to the decision of each girl on the court and on the bench now. How hard are we willing to work for each point will determine the outcome of Saturday and beyond.”
