The Fort High Sting girls volleyball came up just short.
Wednesday (October 11), Christ the King was in town for a senior girls volleyball match between two high powered offences.
Fort High was able to grab an early lead, winning the first set 25-19.
The following sets, however, weren't smooth sailing, as Fort High dropped the next three, 25-17, 25-9 and 25-22.
"(we were) inconsistent on our passing and hitting. In the first set we were good, serving was really good then we just had some trouble receiving their serve and they hit very well," said head coach Gordon Templeton.
Templeton added they'll be putting a heavy focus on coverage this week as their blocking was out matched by Christ the King.
Next up for the 3-3 Sting will be a road game at Amiskwaciy Academy next Wednesday.
