Volleyball: Chargers swept up in Henning loss

The Brandon-Evansville volleyball team couldn't quite muster enough in a 3-0 loss at Henning on Tuesday after getting a season-opening sweep itself the night before.

"We struggled to find consistency all night in most facets of the game," head coach Kelly Olson said. "We didn't lose our composure, but we didn't really ever have control either. Henning did a great job tonight being more consistent and efficient than we were."

The Hornets opened the night with a 25-17 win in the first set. They doubled it with a 25-18 victory in set No. 2, and then they swept the Chargers (1-1) following the third with a 25-20 win.

"The bright spot for us was our passing in both receive and free ball. I also felt we played well at the net, getting a lot of good touches on swings," Olson said. "We were pretty good all night, but serving let us down and putting good swings on the ball did, as well. We let one mistake affect the next play, and that makes it hard to win."

Brandon-Evansville hit -.050 as a team, with Bailey Schaefer recording a team-high .108 hitting percentage.

Schaefer also led the Chargers with 13 kills, while Mikenna Pattrin followed with six. Madison Quinn tallied 20 assists, while Kailee Klimek and Brittany Korkowski each recorded an ace. Defensively, Sara Jacobson's seven digs was tops for B-E, Korkowski and Pattrin each picked up a block.

The Chargers return to action at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, where they will host Hillcrest in Evansville for Parents' Night.
