Volleyball in Butler County has come to a close for the 2019 season with David City, Aquinas, East Butler and Shelby/Rising City all taking loses on Monday during sub-district tournaments. 

The Scouts and Monarchs won in the first round of their tournaments before losing in the semifinals later that night. None of the teams sit high enough in the wildcard standings to hope for a berth into the sub-state round on Saturday.


David City def. Arlington, 22-25, 25-18, 22-25, 25-22, 16-14:  David City played in the C1-4 sub-district in Fremont where the Scouts opened with a dramatic five-setter.

Maya Couch led the team with 22 kills while Lauren Vandenburg and Nelly Behrns added 13 each. 

C-1 No. 3 Wahoo def. David City, 25-14, 25-14, 25-14: David City's season came to an end after losing to Wahoo in the next round. Vandenburg and Couch led with four kills, and Behrns added three while recording three aces. 

David City finished the season 10-18. 

Aquinas Catholic def. Shelby/Rising City, 25-18, 25-14, 25-19: Aquinas advanced to the semifinals of the C2-6 sub-district at Wahoo and ended SRC's season. The Huskies finished the year 11-19. 

Reece Ingalls led SRC with 12 kills.

Aquinas Catholic def. Yutan, 25-15, 25-15, 25-10: "We played consistently well throughout the match which, I think, any team would hope for heading into districts," Aquinas head coach Jody Pelan said. "Our serve receive game has been a weak point this season, but the girls stepped it up, played loose, and played with some confidence, which was enjoyable to watch."  

Exeter-Milligan def. Shelby/Rising City, 25-14, 25-19, 21-25, 25-19: "Due to a couple of our starters out with a concussion, we have had to use and pursue a new lineup," SRC head coach Makenzie Kuhnel said. "So our last two matches, working a couple other players into the lineup, and working to get back into a rhythm has been our goal."
