In its second straight non-Eastern Missouri Conference home matchup in three days to start the 2018-19 season, the Montgomery County varsity girls volleyball team looked to take out their anger on Warrenton on Wednesday after not getting the better of Hermann on Monday.
The problem with both of these bouts for the Lady Wildcats was depth. Specifically, against Warrenton this meant when the squad was trying to bridge the gap after creating an early deficit for itself, it eventually grew weary from the pace it was trying to employ. While that issue could have been addresses with further substitutions, head coach Rachel Leu had already put her entire eight-person lineup to use at that point, causing Montgomery County's efforts to fall just short.
"We Lost to Warrenton 25-16, 13-25, 20-25. Last night was a well fought match and I am proud of the girls for never giving up," said Leu. "We were down in the third 13-18 at one point and brought it within two at 18-20. Unfortunately it wasn't our night and we couldn't finish the way we wanted to."
Marshalling this comeback parade for the Lady Wildcats was Anna Shaw with six digs and Renee Finke added five kills and a pair of blocks. Makenna Meyer and Hailey Hill came through with three aces each, as well.
Montgomery County, 0-2 overall, 0-0 EMO, was at North Callaway on Thursday for its league opener and on Saturday hosts a JV tournament.
