Lady Spartan spikers advance in district

By Russ Green/Sports Editor

For the second year in a row, the Richmond Lady Spartan volleyball team has made it out of the first round of the district tournament. And for the second year in a row, Richmond swept past Kansas City Northeast in the Class 3 District 15 tournament at Smithville Monday night. Richmond will meet top-seeded St. Pius in the semifinals (scheduled for Thursday).

Richmond, now 9-16-2, began with a 25-16 victory in the first game after getting off to a slow start, according to coach Brandon Stevenson.

“We played well in spurts with exceptional serving from a couple players, but really struggled finding a consistent groove,” he said.
