Cardinal volleyers still searching for answers, wins

The overriding theme of Boone Central’s 2022 volleyball season continued this past week.
Hard effort. Competitive performance. More frustration and disappointment.
In three attempts to add a second win to the Cardinal ledger, Boone Central’s losing streak instead extended to 20 matches following a season-opening victory over West Point-Beemer.
Boone hosted a triangular with Mid-State Conference opponents Tuesday, Oct. 4, and had a great chance to snap the skid after rallying for a 25-23 victory over Wayne (4-20) in set one. In two final hard-fought sets, however, the Blue Devils eked out 25-23, 26-24 decisions for the overall win. Boone Central dropped a 25-18, 25-16 decision to Class C1 Top 10 Pierce (21-2) in the night’s finale. The Cards were limited to 19 kills.

Boone Central (1-20) got off to a slow start on Senior Night Thursday and could not complete a comeback effort in a 13-25, 17-25, 25-22, 15-25 loss to visiting West Holt (10-9).
