Pratt, KS-The last time Garden City and Pratt played a little more than a month ago, the Broncbusters held on for a thrilling, five-set victory. Well, their fortunes changed on Sunday.
The Beavers evened the season series with a three-set 22-25, 19-25, 20-25 victory over Garden City.
"We were simply not ready to play, mentally today," Head Coach Patrick Hiltz said. "We didn't pay attention to detail."
The Broncbusters never found any rhythm, falling behind early in the first set. From that point on, Garden City never recovered.
"We were thoroughly beaten today," Hiltz said. "We have to let go of our egos and allow the team to be most important."
Alexandra Jackson had a strong showing in the losing effort, recording 19 digs for Garden City, who lost for the third time in their last four matches. Katie McHugh added 31 assists, and Angel Sherman had 10 kills.
Next up: Garden City hosts Colby on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. for sophomore night.
