Fort Atkinson tops Knights in volleyball

Print Article

FORT ATKINSON, Wis. - The Beloit Memorial boys volleyball team couldn't overcome a slow start against Fort Atkinson and fell in three games Tuesday night.

The Purple Knights lost game one 25-12 before falling 25-21 and 25-23 in competitive games.

"We came out super flat in game one," Beloit Memorial coach Andre De Kok said. "But we made a good recover and could have won the next two games. We just couldn't get those last rallies to go our way."

De Kok said a strategical move helped make the match more competitive.

"Their setter ravaged us in the first game," De Kok said. "And we were able to shut him down from dumping the ball, but their outside really hurt us with some strong hits. We cut down on some of our errors and that let us hang with them."

The Knights were led by Andrew Kleinschmidt and Zavier Franks, each of whom finished with three kills. Brian Kleinschmidt and Ivan Perez-Castro each had seven assists, while Perez-Castro led the team with 11 digs.

• UP NEXT: The Knights will play their final home game against La Follette on Wednesday, Oct. 16.
