TOPEKA â€” Churubuscoâ€™s volleyball team hit the road to take on the first-place team in the Northeast Corner Conference Thursday, and fell in three games.
The Lady Eagles gave Westview all it could handle in the first set, but the Lady Warriors held on to win the match â€” 25-23, 25-13 and 25-12.
In the first game, Churubusco jumped out to an early lead.
Lady Eagle Head Volleyball Coach Trinda Goings said her squad was able to take command early and go up 14-8.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s volleyball team battled back, but its effort fell just short against Homestead.
The Lady Eagles fell in five games, 25-21, 25-20, 23-25, 17-25 and 15-13.
Although each game was competitive, Columbia City could have easily been deposited in three sets by the Lady Spartans. The score in game three was tied near the end, and Homestead was within points of putting away the hosts in a sweep.
However, the Lady Eagles rallied to take game 3, and then dominated with serving and held the advantage to take the fourth game as well.
