The Chickasha High School volleyball team battled what has become a recurring issue Monday in the match against Community Christian, and the bad start led to another loss.
"Again, we came out a little flat with very little aggression," head coach Nancy Waters said.
The Lady Chicks varsity lost the match 17-25, 12-25, 17-25, and are now 5-14 this season.
"The defense did a good job of getting to the correct position, but we just could not get the spike up," Waters said. "We did not hit very well and that led to some easy points for them."
Rory Troub had seven digs to lead the Lady Chicks, and Devyn Crosley had four. Ashley Hannah had six kills and one dig.
Chloe Reyes had five kills, and Kaydee King had five assists. Alei Gann had two kills and a team-leading six assists.
The Chickasha junior varsity came away with a victory against Community Christian, winning 25-19, 22-25, 16-14.
"The JV did a good job of staying with them and finally putting them away," Waters said. "The third game was close all the way, though."
Malorie Mottinger had eight kills, and Waters complimented her play at the net.
"Malorie Mottinger was aggressive at the net tonight, and had some easy kills on short balls by Community Christian," Waters said.
Mikayla Harris had seven kills, and Jordan Biddy had three. Gann had four aces and 10 assists. Elizabeth Wilson had two aces.
Chickasha is scheduled to play El Reno at home at 4 p.m. Thursday.
