LOGAN — Heartland Christian dropped two matches Tuesday in its first action of the season, falling to Logan-Magnolia 14-25, 17-25 and West Harrison 15-25, 21-25.
Despite the setbacks, Heartland Christian coach Heather Heffernan had some positive takeaways from the matches.
“Overall we had great serving and were quick on defense,” she said. “I think we’re just getting out first-game jitters. We have four freshman playing on our regular varsity lineup, but we saw great potential from the team tonight.”
H.C. will be back in action next week for a triangular against Essex and Stanton in Stanton.
