Wamego Invitational - Results

The high school volleyball season continued Saturday with area teams competing at the Wamego Invite, and the Holton Lady Cats had the best area finish of any team taking first place out of 10 teams competing.

Holton went 3-1 in pool play opening up with a two set win over Mission Valley, then followed that up with a two-set win over Riley County.

The Lady Cats followed the two wins with their only loss of the day falling to Hays in two sets, but Holton bounced back and ended pool play with a three-set win over St. Marys to push them into the semifinals.

Holton faced a familiar opponent in the semifinals in Big 7 League rival Nemaha Central, and the Lady Cats won in a three-set thriller 25-23, 25-27 and 25-19.

The Lady Cats then went on to take down Circle in the championship match in two sets rather easily 25-23, 25-15.

As to Nemaha Central they got to the semifinals by going 3-1 in pool play, opening up the tournament with a three-set win over the host Wamego.

The Thunder followed that up with another three set win over Rock Creek, before falling in three sets to Santa Fe Trail.

Nemaha Central ended pool play with a two-set win over Towanda Circle, before falling to Holton in the semifinals.

The Thunder then finished the tournament with a two-set loss to Hays in the third place match, ending the day with an overall record of 3-3.
