Kellogg Community College’s women’s volleyball team only allowed eight points in their second set at home on Tuesday against Kalamazoo Valley Community College, but that was as good as it got for the team’s final home match of the season.
The Bruins opened the first set with a loss, but then returned to win the next set with a strong lead in points 25-8. The third and fourth sets were both very close, but KVCC held out just a little longer for the win.
Scores per set were as follows:
- Set 1: KVCC 25, KCC 21
- Set 2: KCC 25, KVCC 8
- Set 3: KVCC 26, KCC 24
- Set 4: KVCC 25, KCC 19
Leading the Bruins on the court were freshman Audrey Schultz (Lansing/Lansing Catholic Central High School), who had 37 assists and seven digs; freshman Abby Herman (Coldwater/Coldwater High School), who had 13 kills and eight digs; and freshman Hope Warren (Buckley/Buckley High School) who had 13 digs and two aces.
Head KCC Volleyball Coach Tom VanWienen said that the Bruins are on the fringe of doing some really great things.
“The Bruins dropped another tough match,” VanWienen said. “In the outing the Bruins were led by Grace Hall (Battle Creek/Pennfield High School) and Howard offensively. Defensively for the Bruins Hannah Davis (Battle Creek/Pennfield High School) and Warren put together a solid night.”
VanWienen also said, “This was another game that we will look back on and learn moving towards next year. We need to continue to work on our volleyball IQ over the next match and the offseason. All things considered I thought we played well tonight. KVCC just had a couple big moments in tight games that we couldn’t handle and we will continue to work on that aspect of our game.”
Wednesday’s results give the Bruins a 2-11 record in the conference and a 4-19 record overall.
The Bruins’ last game of the season is tonight at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, at Lake Michigan College in Benton Harbor.
