The Barton Community College volleyball team prevailed in straight sets Wednesday night at the Barton Gym dispatching Dodge City Community College 31-29, 25-17, and 25-22.

The Cougars improve their second place conference record to 9-2 and 19-9 overall while Dodge City slides to 5-7 and 12-7 on the season.

Barton will play their next two matches on the road, first coming Saturday in a 6:00 p.m. first serve at No. 5 Butler Community College followed by Monday's trip to Garden City Community College for a 6:30 p.m. first serve. The Cougars will then play their final regular season home match next Wednesday, October 20, hosting Pratt Community College on sophomore night.

During the match, Barton's libero Hanna Miller recorded 16 kills joining a prestigious club becoming just the third Cougar in the program's storied history reaching the 1000 career dig accomplishment. Now with 1006 and counting, Miller only trails single season record holder Karina de Oliveira's career mark of 1217 during the 2018 and 2019 seasons and the top career chart leader Cristin Haines' 1361 set during the 2006 and 2007 seasons.
