Battle volleyball fell flat at home against Blair Oaks Monday, dropping straight sets to the Falcons.

In their third straight loss, the Spartans never got going. They fell behind 6-0 early in the first set, and Blair Oaks led by as much as 15 in the set before taking it 25-10.

The Falcons continued their strong play in the second set, jumping out to an 8-2 lead. Battle responded with a run to tie the set at 11 before Blair Oaks responded with a run of its own. The Falcons rattled off five straight points and never looked back, earning a 25-19 win in the second set.

“We just got off and stayed off,” Williams said. “We never recovered and we beat ourselves.”

After starting the season with two wins, the Spartans have dropped three in a row.

“We don’t have any energy or intensity,” Williams said. “We’re just coming in and going through the motions.”

Before their next match at the MO-KAN Tournament on Saturday, Williams said the Spartans will continue to make changes to get the team back on track.

“We’ve made some rotation changes,” Williams said. “We’ll come in tomorrow and hit blocking and coverage hard.”
