Seven different girls had kills for Kingsland in their 3-2 loss to Southland Tuesday, Sept. 5.

It was probably a disappointing loss, too, as the Knights were leading 2-0 (25-7, 25-21), only to let the win slip away, losing the last three sets (16-25, 16-25, 5-15).

Leading the way in kills were Haley Colton (7), Hannah Pruter (6), Brianna Musel (5) and Reann Kimball (4). Also getting in the kills column were Rialie Fenske (3), Kailynn Hamersma (2) and Taylor Link (1). Kimball and Hamersma also came up with two ace blocks each.

What's kind of amazing about this match is that Pruter was not only one of the top hitters, she also led the team with 19 set assists. And, not only was Colton the top hitter, she was also successful in 21 of 23 serve receives. Fenske was the team leader in serve receiving, with 26 of 27.

In the serving department, Kimball (10/10), Link (8/8), Fenske (2/2) and Alayna Meskill (2/2) were perfect at the line. Pruter, Gina Blanchard and Megan Back missed just one serve.

Others in the SR department, that did well were Link (7/8), Musel (11/16), Blanchard (5/5) and Meskill (1/2).

Tuesday night the gals played host to Wabasha-Kellogg and Thursday they will travel to St. Charles. Saturday is a tournament at Southland. Then on Monday, they travel to LeRoy-Ostrander for a non-conference contest.
