FREMONT, Neb. – Midland University’s struggles on the volleyball court continued on Saturday afternoon as they fell to Concordia University if four sets (25-21, 25-23, 25-13, 25-17). The Warriors have dropped three straight matches in the Great Plains Athletic Conference, their longest such streak since they dropped three in a row during the 2017 season.
“This was a disappointing loss because it was self-inflicted,” stated head coach Pau Giesselmann. “We are just making way too many errors in every phase of the game, both mentally and physically. Until we do a better job and eliminate those unforced errors it doesn’t matter who is on the other side of the net. It is all about us right now and Monday at practice will get better.”
After dropping the first two sets to the Bulldogs, Midland looked dominant in the third. They hit .318 in the third after hitting .045 and .071 in the first and second. However that momentum wouldn’t last as Concordia regained their edge and took the fourth easily to close out the match.
Defensively the Warriors did have a productive game with their block. They combined for 13 blocks with seven players getting in on at least one block. Maggie Hiatt got a hand on seven to lead the way.
Midland (13-6, 5-3 GPAC) will look to break their losing streak this coming Wednesday as they travel west to take on Hastings (8-9, 3-4 GPAC). The two teams will meet ob the court inside Lynn Farrell Arena at 7:30 p.m. in Hastings, Nebraska.
