HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Seward County Community College’s volleyball program falls to Hutchinsons in straight sets for their first loss in the KJCCC.

The lead was too large to overcome on the road as Hutchinson won the first set 25-19.

In the second set, the Lady Saints were down early 10-6 to the Blue Dragons and could not get back in front of Hutchinson. As the Blue Dragons looked to take a two-set lead, they went on a 5-0 run to lead 17-8 over the Lady Saints. Seward County could not get their offense going in the second set as Hutchinson won the set 25-14.

Seward County fought back in the third set and went up early 6-5 over Hutchinson. Both teams exchanged points as the Lady Saints had the lead 15-14 but could not extend the match as Hutchinson went on an 11-4 run to close out the third set, 25-19.
