Looking to stop their four-game losing streak, the Bethany College volleyball team traveled to McPherson College on Saturday.
The Swedes struggled to keep up with the Bulldogs' offense as McPherson defeated Bethany 3-0: 21-25, 9-25, 18-25.
"We just didn't show up to play," Swede coach Nathalea Stephenson said. "It is really disappointing when you practice harder and do things better in practice than you do in a match. Right now it is hard trying to figure out who will show up to play and do things the way they are supposed to and who will not."
Bethany then took on Missouri Valley College. The Swedes were unable to find their rhythm as they lost 3-0; 14-25, 14-25, 21-25.
Missouri Valley out-hit Bethany 46-20, holding the Swedes to a .046 hitting percentage.
The Swedes return home to host KCAC foe and rival Kansas Wesleyan University tonight. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
