It was a nail-biter of a match hard fought for five sets, but the Kellogg Community College women’s volleyball team emerged victorious on the road Tuesday with a win over Ancilla College.
Scores per set were as follows:
- Set 1: Ancilla 28, KCC 26
- Set 2: KCC 25, Ancilla 19
- Set 3: KCC 25, Ancilla 21
- Set 4: Ancilla 26, KCC 24
- Set 5: KCC 15, Ancilla 13
KCC’s Head Women’s Volleyball Coach Tom VanWienen said it was “a fun match to watch as a fan, but hard to watch as a coach.”
“Lots of areas for us to improve on,” VanWienen said. “We continue to get better and again tonight we moved a few more pieces around and will continue to do so and find what works. They did a good job of keeping their heads up and pushing through till the end.”
Freshman Abby Herman (Coldwater/Coldwater High School) played a very good match, VanWienen said, and sophomore Jenna Connors (Charlotte/Charlotte High School) “had some really good moments we can build on as a setter moving forward.”
The win gives the Bruins a 1-0 conference record to open conference play this week and a 2-7 record overall.
The Bruins play next away against Kalamazoo Valley Community College beginning at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, in Kalamazoo. The team’s first home match will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14, against Lansing Community College at the Miller Gym on campus in Battle Creek.
Admission to all KCC home games is free.
