Coyotes drop MAC opener in two sets


After two close set losses to the Garden County Eagles, the Potter-Dix Coyotes suffered an early exit at the MAC tournament on Saturday.

The Coyotes fell by set scores of 25-22 and 25-23.

“We didn’t play our best,” said Potter-Dix Head Coach Kristi Jung. “We weren’t agressive enough and we simply made too many errors.”

The Eagles went on to win the third-place match against host South Platte. The Eagles lone loss in the tournament was to tournament winner Leyton in straight sets.

“We played hard. We did our best but we were just a little short,” said Coyotes freshman Alexus Rozelle. “Our passing could have been better and that’s something we’ll have to work on for the rest of this year and next year.”

Despite the loss, Rozelle had an excellent match at the service line as she made but one error in 16 attempts. The Coyotes scored 11 points on Rozelle’s serves. Regyn Hicks was at the top of the kill chart for Potter-Dix with eight while Rozelle added seven. Hicks and Rozelle were often the beneficiaries of Taylor Juelfs 16-set assists.

The Coyotes had four players with double-digit digs including Rozelle (14), Morgan Wolff (13), Hicks (11) and Juelfs (10). Dawson Sharman and Kinley Vowers had seven and six digs respectively.

The Coyotes are at Banner County Tuesday evening for a triangular with Leyton. The first serve is scheduled for 5 p.m.
