JOHNSTON - The Webster City volleyball team compiled a 1-3 record at Saturday's Johnston Invitational where it faced several of the state's larger schools.
The Lynx (19-12 overall) dropped pool-play contests to Class 5A programs Ames (12-21, 22-20, 15-8) and Urbandale (21-17, 21-15) before they handled Oskaloosa in three sets (21-18, 16-21, 15-13).
WCHS lost in the consolation round to Roland-Story (25-16, 25-18).
"I thought we did a good job in our first three matches, especially against Oskaloosa, which has a solid volleyball tradition," WCHS head coach Jess Howard said.
Senior setter Kaitlyn Kehoe missed the final match against the Norsemen after suffering an injury during warm-ups.
"I don't know if (the match against Roland-Story) was a true representation of how we could have done if we would have had Kaitlyn," Howard said.
