It’s amazing what 24 hours can do to a team.

One night after passing the ball with ease, the Helias volleyball team found things a little bit tougher in the Lady Crusaders’ home opener.

However, they were able to overcome their struggles enough to carve out a 25-16, 25-19 win over Waynesville at a sweltering Rackers Fieldhouse.

“Our serve-receive (Monday) night at Sedalia was really, really, really good. Here, it wasn’t,” Helias coach David Harris said. “I’m not making excuses because Waynesville had to deal with it too, but it was hot in here and the girls’ arms were probably sweaty.
