The Chieftains open their home schedule on Thursday at 6 p.m. against Basehor-Linwood.
Opening its season on the road for a triangular at Leavenworth with Immaculata and Wathena, the McLouth High volleyball team escaped unscathed.

Junior Kylie Shufflebarger led MHS (2-0) with 18 kills and 12 aces. Sophomore Jeri Holwick set up her fellow Bulldogs throughout, racking up 30 assists. Senior Haley Holwick added nine service aces to the McLouth attack.
