MCCOOK, Nebraska — On Friday, the Cloud County Community College volleyball team had one of its few off nights to begin 2018, falling in three sets (25-18, 25-18 and 25-12) on the road against non-conference foe, McCook Community College.
The T-Birds (8-4 overall, 1-1 KJCCC East) struggled to get things going offensively without their kills leader, freshman Dayana Chara, who was rested after dealing with shoulder soreness this week.
Cloud County was limited to a season-low 21 kills on the evening.
Freshman middle hitter Shelby Ohlde was a bright spot for the T-Birds, finishing with a team-high nine kills on 13 swings.
Cloud County will look to shake off Saturday's loss and prepare for Monday's showdown with Cowley College, scheduled to get underway at 6:30 p.m.
The match against the visiting Tigers (6-1 overall, 2-0 KJCCC East) will be the T-Birds first KJCCC East home game of the season, and their first match back inside the friendly confines of Arley Bryant Gymnasium since their season opener back on August 22.
