KCC's women's volleyball team competes during a match at home.

Kellogg Community College’s women’s volleyball team struggled in its first home match of the season Tuesday, falling to Lansing Community College in three sets at the Miller Gym in Battle Creek.

Scores per set were as follows:

  • Set 1: LCC 25, KCC 15

  • Set 3: LCC 25, KCC 15

Sophomore Grace Hall (Battle Creek/Pennfield High School, pictured above) and freshman Audrey Schultz (Lansing/Lansing Catholic Central High School) led the Bruins on the court. Hall had six kills, two digs and one block assist; Schultz had nine digs, two aces, four assists and one kill.

KCC’s Head Women’s Volleyball Coach Tom VanWienen said the Bruins played well despite the loss.

“We had the lead in each game and will need to continue to work on playing to the end of each game,” VanWienen said. “I thought our defense was much improved and look forward to getting better each match and each practice.”
