Having swept Hutchinson Community College a month prior, the script flipped at Hutchinson's Sports Arena on Wednesday night as the Barton Community College volleyball team was dropped in three by the Blue Dragons.  Never looking in sync in a 25-14 first set loss, the Cougars still didn't have an answer for Hutchinson in the second losing by 25-12 before a 7-1 mid- third set spurt by the Blue Dragons led to a 25-21 match clincher.   Dropping to 9-5 in the Jayhawk and 22-8 on the season, the Lady Cougars still have the fourth seed and home playoff game secured but see their outside chances of moving up the standings eliminated.   Hutchinson meanwhile, remains in the thick of things atop the standings improving to 11-2 and 20-11 overall.  Barton concludes the regular season with two road matches, the first coming in one week at Seward County Community College before a Friday trip to Garden City.
