KCC women's volleyball players go up for a block against a player from Glen Oaks during a home match on Sept. 7, 2017.

Kellogg Community College’s women’s volleyball team racked up another win with a victory over conference opponent Glen Oaks Community College in four sets Thursday at home in Battle Creek.

The Bruins took set one 25-21, set three 25-23 and set four 25-20; Glen Oaks took set two 25-20.

KCC was led on the court by sophomore Emily Delmotte (Marshall/Marshall High School), who had 15 kills, 2 solo blocks and 4 block assists; freshman Rose Tecumseh (Battle Creek/Lakeview High School), who had 11 kills, 2 aces, 2 solo blocks, and 5 block assists; and freshman Kameron Haley (Battle Creek/St. Philip Catholic Central High School), who had 28 digs, 5 aces and 2 kills.

Head KCC Coach Tom VanWienen said it was a big win for the Bruins.

“We came out a tad slow again tonight and GOCC did a nice job defensively against us, but the ladies pulled it together and showed some grit,” VanWienen said. “I’m proud of the way we grind as a team.”

The win brings the Bruins’ record for the season so far to 8-1 and their conference record to 4-1.
