    On Tuesday, the Lady Raiders breezed through Oskaloosa 25-10, 25-17 and then host Kansas City Christian 25-12, 25-14 to push its season record to 13-4.
    “I thought we played really good defense and covered the floor really well tonight,” Imac coach Dan Schmidt said. “Maggie Campbell did a nice job blocking the net for us and Mary Thorne had a big night by leading us in kills.”
    The Lady Raiders coach also highlighted Grace Parker for being the team leader in passing percentage and Katie Gillespie for doing the same in assists.
    Immaculata will play at Bishop Seabury Thursday starting at 5 p.m.
    Pleasant Ridge edges McLouth
    The Pleasant Ridge volleyball team rode away from McLouth Tuesday evening with two different results.
    First, the Lady Rams took down its hosts 26-28, 25-15, 25-11 before losing to Jefferson County North 15-25, 17-25.
    “I thought we started off a little cold,” PR coach Amy Bergman said. “As time went on we got warmer, especially in the McLouth game.”
    Ashten Langley had seven blocks, eight kills on the night while Jordan Adams added five aces and a team-high 15 kills. Kelsey Carpenter chipped in five kills.
    PR, 6-9, will be at Jeff West on Thursday. Matches start at 5 p.m.
    Sluggish Lansing earns victory
    It wasn’t the best evening for the Lansing volleyball team Tuesday, but the team played well enough to get a victory.
    Overcoming a lackluster performance, the Lady Lions defeated Bonner Springs 25-23, 25-23, 25-19 to move to 10-5 on the season.
    “We just played slowed and sluggish all night,” Lansing coach Julie Slater said. “I’m glad to get out of there with a win. We did what we needed to do to win.”
    The Lady Lions will play in a Blue Valley Northwest quad Thursday beginning at 5 p.m.
