NEW RICHLAND —The New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva volleyball team lost a 5-game match to Waterville-Elysian-Morristown Tuesday.

The Panthers fell 25-16, 25-27, 25-22, 22-25, 6-15, in what NRHEG head coach Joe Kuechenmeister called a sloppy game.

“We didn’t play our best,” the first-year head coach said. “It was a good test early in the season to play a scrappy team like W-E-M. We didn’t respond and it was a good reality check.”
