ELK MOUND — Unfortunately, hard work and determination alone were not enough for Glenwood City to pick up a victory in a quad meet held in Elk Mound September 9.
The Hilltoppers lost all three of its matches in last Thursday’s round-robin event.
In the tournament opener, Glenwood City split the first two sets with Ellsworth only to fall in the third and deciding game. It then lost in straight sets to Somerset and the host Mounders.
Ellsworth beat Glenwood City 25-22 in a tight opening set with the Toppers returning the favor for a 26-24 win in set number two. But, in the third and final set, the Panthers sprang to an early advantage and went on to win 15-6 to take the victory.
In the second round of play, Glenwood City faced once-beaten Somerset. The Spartans overpowered the Hilltoppers winning in straight sets, 25-14 and 25-13.
In a preview of this Thursday’s conference opener which will also be played in Elk Mound, the Mounders took control of both sets early and went on to defeat the Hilltoppers 25-16 and 25-13 in the final round of tourney play.
Following Glenwood City’s match in Elk Mound September 16, it will return home next Tuesday, September 21 to welcome Elmwood/Plum City.
