Kellogg Community College’s women’s volleyball team earned its second conference win of the season Thursday against Ancilla College at the Miller Gym.

KCC opened with a decisive win in set one, followed by two more KCC victories in sets two and three. A close set three ended the match with their second conference win. The Bruins’ previous match against Ancilla lasted five sets.

Scores per set were as follows:

  • Set 1: KCC 25, Ancilla 16
  • Set 2: KCC 25, Ancilla 19
  • Set 3: KCC 25, Ancilla 23

Leading the Bruins on the court were freshman Hope Warren (Buckley/Buckley High School), who had nine kills and three digs; freshman Jenna Connors (Charlotte/Charlotte High School), who had 25 assists and five digs; and freshman Maddie Edwards (Climax/Colimax-Scotts High School), who had four kills, one block solo and four block assists.

Head KCC Volleyball Coach Tom VanWienen said it was a good night for the Bruins, who are starting to get healthy again. After their break, VanWienen hopes to get a few of their players back.

“I thought we did a nice job of moving the ball around. Our defense keeps getting better each game and Audrey Schultz (Lansing/Lansing Catholic Central High School) is leading the way in the back row,” VanWienen said. “I feel good about where the ladies are right now. Our record does not reflect how good we can play or the level that we are capable of playing at.”

The Bruins will be off until the team’s next home match against Kalamazoo Valley on Oct. 12.

Thursday’s results give the Bruins a 2-6 record in the conference and a 3-13 record overall.

The Bruins play next starting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, against Kalamazoo Valley Community College. The team plays at the Miller Gym on campus in Battle Creek.
