KCC volleyball earns first official win of the season

KCC's 2014 women's volleyball team.

The Kellogg Community College women’s volleyball team earned their first official win of the season Friday afternoon, defeating Illinois’ McHenry County College in three sets as part of the Owens Invitational in Toledo. 

Final scores for each set were as follows:

  • Set 1: 25-20
  • Set 2: 25-17
  • Set 3: 25-18

Over the course of the match for the Bruins, sophomore Tristen Ehredt (Battle Creek/Pennfield High School) had 14 kills and two aces; freshman Grace Crawford (Marshall/Marshall High School) had nine kills and two block assists; sophomore Victoria Rybinski (Brutus/Pellston High School) had 22 assists; sophomore Rebecca Browning (Rockwood/Oscar A. Carlson High School) had three kills, a solo block and two block assists; and freshman Kenya House (Riverdale/St. Louis High School) had an ace.

“It was great to see that all of our hard work in practice paid off with a win,” Ehredt said.

Bruins head coach Amy Julien said that after a rough first match against Mott Community College on Tuesday, the team came out strong against McHenry.

“It was fun to watch them get the first win of the season,” Julien said.

The win brings the team’s overall record to 1-1 for the season so far.

The Bruins continue play this weekend in Toledo as part of the Owens Invitational. The team’s first home game — which offers free admission and free Bruins stickers for kids — will start at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 4, against conference opponent Lake Michigan College at the Miller Gym.
