The Kellogg Community College women’s volleyball team won its first home match of the season Thursday in four sets, defeating its first conference opponent of the season.

After falling in a 15-25 first set against Lake Michigan College at the Miller Gym, the Bruins came back to win three straight at 25-22, 25-13 and 25-13, respectively.

“We came out a little flat for the first two games,” Amy Julien, the Bruins’ head coach, said. “Then we decided to play Kellogg volleyball.”

On offense for the Bruins, sophomore Tristen Ehredt (Battle Creek/Pennfield High School) had 18 kills and two aces; freshman Grace Crawford (Marshall/Marshall High School) had 13 kills and one ace; freshman Hannah Day (Pennfield/Pennfield High School) had five kills; and sophomore Victoria Rybinski (Brutus/Pellston High School) had one kill and 33 assists.

Defensively, Crawford had 15 digs and one assisted block, Ehredt and Rybinski each had three digs, and Day had one assisted block.

The win gives the Bruins a winning 1-0 conference record to start the season and an even 3-3 record overall. The team plays next beginning at 6:30 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, Sept. 9, against conference opponent Lansing Community College in Lansing.

KCC’s next home game starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, against conference opponent Kalamazoo Valley Community College at the Miller Gym. Admission to all home games is free!

This Thursday is also Patriot’s Day at the Miller Gym, when a moment of silent remembrance will follow the National Anthem.
