ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Highland welcomed West Branch for the first round of regional play Oct. 17, with the winner advancing to face off with Class 2A No. 11 Regina. It was the visitors that exited victorious with a four-set victory (22-25, 25-14, 25-13, 25-13), ending Highland’s season.

Highland earned the first five points of the night courtesy of three West Branch errors, a kill to the deep corner, and a block. Highland responded every time West Branch made a run in the opening set, including scoring the final six points of the opening set to erase a 22-19 deficit.

It would be West Branch’s runs that ruled the rest of the night. A 6-0 run helped them pull away in set two. A bad start doomed Highland in set three, as West Branch took eight of the opening nine to take that set.

After dropping five of the first six in set four, Highland came back to tie things at nine, before West Branch notched 12 of the next 13 points to come away with the fourth set and the victory.

For a more in-depth recap, including quotes from co-head coach Carrie Wieland, pick up a copy of the Oct. 26 edition of The Kalona News.
