The Hayfield volleyball team lost to No. 8 ranked Waterville-Elysian-Morristown (4-3 overall) by scores of 15-25, 25-16, 18-25, 26-24, 15-9 in Hayfield Tuesday.

Hayfield (4-4 overall, 1-1 Gopher) was a point away from winning the match in game four, but WEM scored four straight to take it.

“We had it in game four, but a couple of mental errors killed us at the end,” Hayfield head coach Johanna Krueger said. “We were in control for that entire game, then in the last game I think our energy was too low. I see a step forward in the right direction and we’re moving in a positive direction.”
