A shorthanded Barton Community College volleyball squad made short work Wednesday night at Garden City Community College, sweeping the Broncbusters 25-21, 25-13, and 25-16.
The victory keeps the Cougars in third place of the Jayhawk West at 4-2 and 13-8 on year while Garden City slides to 3-4 in conference play and 5-19 on season.
Rayanne de Oliveira's twelve kills of twenty-two swings for a .409 attack percentage led the Cougars as the team chalked up a .275 attack with just eleven errors. Oliveira also accounted for three blocks on the night in a solid front line performance while Karina de Oliveira captained the defensive line with twenty-one digs as Eduarda Souza recorded eighteen.
