SPEARFISH — Spearfish’s varsity volleyball team fell to Mitchell and Douglas during its home triangular Saturday at the Spearfish High School gym.

The Spartans dropped a three-games-to-zero decision to Mitchell to begin their day. Scores were 25-10, 25-14, and 25-20.

Spearfish fell three games to zero to Douglas in the day’s final match. Scores were 25-22, 25-22, and 25-23.

“We played two very good teams,” Spearfish head coach Christine Skoglund said. “But I also thought, on the other end, that our lack of effort today and lack of finishing hurt us.”

Skoglund said the Spartans showed flashes of this season’s progress but did not show it enough. “We needed to get more consecutive points than we did,” she added.

Spearfish will take a 2-10 record  into Tuesday’s match at Sturgis Brown.
