HCC VOLLEYBALL’S SEASON ENDS WITH 5-SET LOSS TO WNCC AT NJCAA

Volleyball | 11.21.14

CASPER, Wyo. – As the Hutchinson Community College volleyball team approached the Casper Events Center on Friday for the Blue Dragons’ NJCAA Division I National Volleyball Tournament consolation match with Western Nebraska, one thought was sitting in the back of head coach Patrick Hall’s mind.

Hall was hoping that Friday’s match wouldn’t be a repeat of Thursday’s opening-round sweep at the hands of Blinn College.

While the final result was the same for Hutchinson on Friday, the performance was a complete 180-degree turn from Thursday. Hutchinson’s season ended with a five-set loss to the seventh-seeded Cougars 25-22, 23-25, 19-25, 25-19, 15-9.

Eliminated from the national tournament for the second-straight year after two matches, the three-time defending Region VI and Jayhawk West champion Blue Dragons close out the season with a 27-14 record.

Sophomore middle Nicole Kinser closed out her two years with the Blue Dragons by pounding down a career-high 24 kills, hitting .351 on a career-high 53 attacks. Kinser’s 24 kills are the fifth-most ever in a match by a Blue Dragon player and the second-most in a fifth-set match.

The 2014 Jayhawk West Most Valuable Player became only the third Blue Dragon player in history to have 500 kills in a season, finishing with 508. Only All-American Mariana Blum’s two seasons of 641 and 584 kills were better than Kinser’s sophomore season.

Kinser’s performance helped Hutchinson rebound from the worst offensive performance of the season on Thursday against Blinn. Against Western Nebraska, the Blue Dragons hit .224 on 143 swings. HCC had nine team blocks, 50 digs and four service aces.

Sophomore Lauren Darby had a big rebound match for HCC, also reaching double figures with 12 kills on .222 hitting. Darby was shut out on Thursday. Darby also had five digs and a service ace.

Petra Silic had nine kills, hitting .368 with four block assists. Silic set a freshman team record with 185 blocks in a season, surpassing Kate Morrell’s 183 set in 2009.

Aubrey Wilson finished with four kills on .444 hitting with five total blocks, 17 assists and one ace. Tarynn Stueder finished with 28 assists.

McKenzie Steele had a team-high 15 digs which helped her set a freshman record for digs with 589, which is fourth most in HCC single-season history.

The Cougars were led by Leticia Silva’s 22 kills. Stephanie Massanet had 16 kills on .382 hitting. She also had four huge service aces, including three in a decisive 9-0 fifth-set run for Western Nebraska.

Western Nebraska had four team blocks, 59 digs and 10 service aces.

Riding a dubious NJCAA Tournament 10-set losing streak, the Blue Dragons were looking to first snap that streak before they could turn their total fortunes around.

Kinser led a strong first set for HCC with eight kills as HCC won a set in the national tournament for the first time since the fourth set against Temple in the 2012 national championship second-round consolation match. Jai Chapman’s kill capped an early 4-0 HCC run that helped build a 7-2 Blue Dragon lead. The lead was 14-11 when a pair of WNCC attack errors with a Darby kill and Kinser kill on an over-dig bumped the margin to 18-11. With HCC leading 20-13, the Cougars scored four straight to pull within 20-17 and prompted Hall to call a timeout. A Silic/Lexi Turner double block stopped the WNCC run and the teams traded points for the remainder of the set with Kinser pounding down kill No. 8 on set point.

Kinser continued to carry the Blue Dragons well into the second set. Her solo block gave HCC a 6-2 lead and another kill led to a 12-7 HCC advantage. When Kinser teamed up with Skye Calvert in a double block, the Blue Dragons led 15-11. The Cougars rallied to tie the set at 16-16. With Kinser serving, HCC was called for a rotation violation and the remainder of the set and into the third became an uphill battle for Hutchinson. Back-to-back kills by Massanet helped Western Nebraska built a 23-20. The Blue Dragons hit .333 in the set, but HCC fell 25-23.

The bad vibes from that second set violation continued to haunt HCC into the third. Runs of 5-0 and 6-0 helped Western Nebraska build a 16-6 lead. The Blue Dragons scored 5 of the next 6 to pull within 17-11 after a Silic/Wilson double block. Still trailing 22-14, the Dragons scored 5 of the next 6 and pulled within 23-19, but the Cougars scored the final two points of the set to give WNCC a 2-1 match lead.

The Blue Dragons immediately took charge in the fourth. Three Kinser kills helped Hutch lead 8-2 and the Dragons, who hit a match-high .361 in the fourth set, kept the Cougars at arm’s length from there. Leading 18-13, the Dragons went on a 5-2 run to lead 23-15; Darby had the final two kills of that set. Darby was instrumental in closing out the fourth set. She had five kills, including a kill on set point to force a fifth-set.

Playing a fifth set for the first time since opening weekend in August, the Blue Dragons scored the first two points on a Darby kill and WNCC attack error. The Cougars scored the next two. Another Darby kill gave HCC a 3-2 lead before WNCC took control with a 9-0 run, getting three Massanet service aces in the decisive run. HCC hit .000 in the fifth set, while Western Nebraska hit .200. The Dragons closed to within 11-6, but the teams traded points to close out the match.

Volleyball | 11.20.14

CASPER, Wyo. – The defending national champion Blinn College volleyball team looked every bit the part as the Buccaneers rolled over the Hutchinson Community College volleyball team 3-0 on Thursday in the opening round of the 2014 NJCAA Tournament at the Casper Events Center.

The Region VI champion and 15th-seed Blue Dragons had one of their worst passing and overall offensive performances of the season in a 25-11, 25-25, 25-11 opening-round loss to second-seeded Blinn, which won its 22nd consecutive match.

The Blue Dragons (27-13) will now face Western Nebraska Community College in an elimination game at 10 a.m. MT on Friday in Casper. The winner advances at top another elimination match  on Friday while the loser will conclude its season. Hutchinson and Western Nebraska met in the opening round of the 2013 NJCAA Tournament.

 Hutchinson tied a season low in kills with 19 and had the second-lowest attack percentage of the season at .000 (19 kills, 19 attack errors, 76 total attacks). Blinn hit .444 for the match.

Blinn jumped out to leads of 8-1, 14-3 and 20-6 hitting .304 in the first set to HCC’s negative .045. HCC got three kills from Kinser and two from Silic in a first set where they had only two runs of points of three and two.

Trailing 7-4 in the second set, the Dragons pulled to within one on a Blinn service error, a Maddi Cumpton service ace and a Silic/Chapman double block to make it 7-6. Blinn countered with a 7-1 run to regain full control of the set, using an ace and two blocks along the way. All told, the Buccaneer run was 15-5 that built a 22-12 lead. Blinn hit .417 in the second set to HCC’s .000

Blinn saved its best for last with a .600 hitting performance in the third set. A Calvert kill cut the Blinn lead to 6-4, but the Buccaneers reeled off 8 of the next 9 points with an array of shots that went down and one double block. After Trinity Laualu kill, Blinn led 14-5. Blinn extended its run to 13-2 and led 19-6 after a Luafalemana kill. Trailing 23-8, Kinser hit kill Nos. 10 and 11 for the match to pull within 13 points.

BLUE DRAGONS MAKE FINAL PREP FOR NATIONAL VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT

Volleyball | 11.19.14

CASPER, Wyo. – The Jayhawk West and Region VI champion Hutchinson Community College volleyball team got its first look at the Casper Events Center Wednesday morning during their workout session for the 2014 NJCAA Division I Volleyball Tournament.

The 15th-seeded Blue Dragons will meet the second seed and defending national champion Blinn College Buccaneers at 11 a.m. Thursday (noon Hutchinson time) in the opening round.

The Blue Dragons are making their eighth appearance at the NJCAA national tournament, all since 2004. This is Hutchinson’s third-straight appearance at nationals.

Hutchinson brings a 27-12 records into Thursday’s opening-round matchup. The Blue Dragons have won three-straight Region VI and three-consecutive conference championships. Blinn is 36-1, whose only loss is to No. 4 Tyler Junior College in late September.

All Blue Dragons matches in Casper will be videostreamed by NJCAA.tv. The Blue Dragon Sports Network will provide an audio-only broadcast 15 minutes before each match.

MAPPING THE BLUE DRAGON TOURNAMENT PATH
Along with Blinn, No. 7 Western Nebraska and No. 10 Arizona Western are in Hutchinson’s quarter-bracket of the NJCAA Tournament.

The Hutchinson-Blinn winner will play the Western Nebraska-Arizona Western winner in the quarterfinals at 5:30 Thursday (6:30 p.m. Hutchinson time).

The two opening-round losers will play in the elimination bracket at 10 a.m. (11 a.m. Hutchinson time) on Friday. A victory in that match means a 4:30 p.m. match (5:30 p.m. Hutchinson time) on Friday for a chance to play in Saturday’s ninth-place match.

If Hutchinson wins its first-round match, the Blue Dragons would be assured of placing no worse than eighth and would play on Saturday regardless of Friday’s outcome. If HCC wins its first-round and quarterfinal matches on Thursday, HCC would play in a 6:30 p.m. MT match on Friday. If they win the first match and drop the quarterfinal, the Blue Dragons would play at 2:30 p.m. on Friday.

BLUE DRAGON SEASON RECAP
The 2014 Blue Dragons went undefeated in the Jayhawk West championship going 16-0, winning 48 of  53 sets in conference play. The Blue Dragons were 11-12 against non-conference opponents and 2-7 against nationally ranked competition.

Hutchinson was unranked to start the season and was ranked as high as No. 18 in the NJCAA poll before falling out after a 1-3 weekend at the Missouri State University-West Plains Invitational in early October.

For the season, the Blue Dragons averages 11.86 kills per set and hit .220 as a team. The Blue Dragons were the top blocking team in the Jayhawk West this season at 2.82 blocks per set. HCC also averaged 13.66 digs and 1.48 service aces per set.

The Blue Dragons have been led all season by middles Nicole Kinser and Petra Silic.

Silic and Kinser are the Nos. 1 and 2 blockers in the Jayhawk West at 1.45 and 1.02 blocks per set.

From the outside, freshman Jai Chapman and sophomore Lauren Darby were both all-conference players. Darby, an honorable mention selection, is third in hitting at 2.29 kills per set and a 1.73 hitting percentage. Chapman, a second-team all-conference selection, hits .131 and averages 2.09 kills per set.

First-team All-Jayhawk West selection Aubrey Wilson averages 1.66 kills while hitting .232. She is third on the team in blocks at 0.87. She also averages 1.57 digs and 4.72 set assists.

SCOUTING BLINN COLLEGE

HCC’S NATIONAL TOURNAMENT HISTORY
Hutchinson will be making its eighth appearance in the NJCAA Division I Volleyball Tournament. The Blue Dragons are making their third-straight appearance at nationals.

Overall, Hutchinson has an 11-15 record in the NJCAA Tournament.

HCC made its first tournament appearance in 2004. Entering the tournament 40-0 as the No. 2 seed, the Blue Dragons lost to Indian Hills in quarterfinals before rallying to win the next two matches to finish fifth, the best tournament finish in tournament history.

The Blue Dragons also placed seventh in 2005, eighth in 2006, 10th in 2008 and ninth in 2009.

In Patrick Hall’s first two trips to nationals, HCC went 1-2 in 2012 and 0-2 last season. Hutchinson’s 2012 victory was the first Region VI team to win at the national tournament since HCC’s ninth-place victory over San Jacinto in 2009.

Of all of Hutchinson’s wins at the national tournament, its 2006 opening-round match against defending championship Miami-Dade might be the most memorable.

In a 5-12 matchup, the 12th-seeded Blue Dragons raced out to a 2-0 match lead on the Sharks, only to see Miami-Dade wins sets 3 and 4 and have a match point in hand in the fifth. The Blue Dragons fought that point off and leading 17-16 in the fifth, freshman middle Ludmilla Amaral stuffs Miami-Dade All-American Paola Ampudea to close out the biggest victory in Blue Dragon volleyball history.
