KINGMAN - The Kingman High School volleyball team prides itself in running a methodical offense, especially when attacking at the net.

At the same time, they're not afraid to fight fire with fire when they face quicker scoring teams such as Prescott High School. KHS had to change tactics and start swinging at a faster rate. They started building early momentum after landing a few quick kills, but it didn't last long, resulting in a straight-set home loss (25-18, 25-10, 25-12) Tuesday night.

"Prescott's always a great school and a great program," Kingman head coach Salina Fogg said. "They've got a lot of depth. They're a strong swinging team. They move the ball around well."

Prescott (25-11) scored by landing quick strikes down the middle, hitting to both sides of the floor and taking advantage of KHS attack errors.

Kingman struggled to keep the ball in play whenever they tried deflecting PHS' scoring attempts.

The Lady Badgers defense also spread across the floor and took command. Five PHS players combined for 49 digs on the night. PHS sophomore outside hitter Raphael Temple had 11 kills. Three other players combined for 16 kills.

Currently fighting breast cancer, Prescott head coach Shellie Bowman was happy with the unity on both ends.

"I have some great defensive players. Tonight, they really came through for us," Bowman said. "These girls have been wonderful and very supportive. (Coaching's) helped me keep my mind busy. When they do win like this where everybody contributes, it just makes my life a lot greater."

Kingman senior outside hitter Taylor Reed had 11 kills, while senior middle blocker Heather Weninger had 7 kills. Sophomore middle blocker Desirae Gonzalez added 8 kills for KHS.

The Lady Bulldogs (10-8) will play their season finale against Dysart High School at 6 p.m. today for senior night. This will be the last hoorah for KHS' six seniors.
