Goodhue went 0-2-2 at the Wabasha-Kellogg Invitational Saturday.
The Wildcats (3-7-2, 1-3 HVL) split their first match with Kenyon-Wanamingo 10-21, 22-20, lost to Winona 21-9, 21-19 and split with Durand 21-15, 15-21 during pool play.
Getting the No. 7 seed, Goodhue was downed by Fillmore-Central in the first round of bracket play 22-25, 25-14, 15-8.
“We don’t have much offense right now,” Goodhue head coach Andy Kimball said. “We rely on outlasting teams.”
Junior Kali Ryan led the Wildcats with 11 kills in the four matches and junior Mikayla Tipcke had nine kills and 32 set assists to go along with one ace serve on 21 of 22 serving. Senior Ashlyn Stecklein also had a nice day serving, finishing 26-for-26 with five aces.
The offense was stagnant for much of the day but Kimball said he was pleased with the way the team served Saturday.
“We’re just not getting kills,” Kimball said. “We need to get points where we can get them.”
Goodhue is also without starter Mikayla Miller, who is out with a knee injury.
The Wildcats host Pine Island Tuesday.
