FULDA - Say what you will about the Fulda Raiders high school volleyball team, which fell to 1-8 Monday night in a three-game setback against visiting Springfield. The Raiders, though on the smallish side, are good scrappers.
Springfield had a difficult time putting the Raiders away in the first two games Monday. The Tigers were extended to 30 points in the opener before finally emerging with a 30-28 win. They won another close one in Game Two, 25-21. The third went 25-15.
FHS head coach Stephanie Strenge said both teams played well in the first game, but serving errors hurt Fulda at times. Still, the Raiders led late, 23-21, before succumbing.
Fulda missed more key serves in the second game.
“Rally killers,” Strenge said.
Two Raiders finished with solid serving credentials, however. Millie Piper, a junior setter, put 13 of 14 serves in play and had two aces. Teammate Bailey Wagner, a junior outside hitter, was 9-for-9 in the serving department with two aces.
Courtney Zins and Camryn Baumhoefner each had six kills for the Raiders, who were credited with good net play throughout. Ruth Cheadle had 12 digs.
