The Litchfield volleyball team’s Sept. 24 match against Watertown-Mayer was preceded by a ceremony honoring “Hometown Heroes” of the Litchfield community, but the Dragons dispatched of Watertown-Mayer rather unceremoniously after, beating the Royals 3-1 in a conference clash.

Hannah Banks led the Dragon attack, racking up 14 kills, while Macy Huhner added 11.

Setter Brynne Wahl assisted on 26 Dragon points, and Huhner, Kyndra Beavers and Brynne Wahl each had one service ace.

Five days after beating the Royals, Litchfield couldn’t keep up with another conference opponent, as the Dragons fell 12-25, 13-25, 13-25 to Delano Tuesday night.

Delano stifled the Dragon attack, allowing only 16 kills across the three sets and conceding zero Litch service aces.
