Mustangs fall short of winning streak

by Kinsey Phipps

After winning their very first conference game of the season on Sept. 30 against CMB, the PCM girls’ volleyball team hoped to pull out a second win on Oct. 2 at Nevada. Although the girls fought hard, they couldn’t make it happen. PCM went 0-3, making it a quick loss against a tough team. The sets went 25-19, 25-19 and 25-13.
“I think we played very well against Nevada, considering they are ranked fourth in the state,” junior Kendal Earley said.
Senior Courtney Van Houweling came out on top for kills and digs with six kills and 14 digs. Van Houweling also went 6-6 serving with one ace. Sophomore Katie Vande Wall went 10-11 serving and also had one ace. Sophomore Jayci Vos went 12-12 serving, and she had the most assists with seven.
“Nevada is a very good team and program. I was very proud of the way our girls fought,” Head Coach Mollie Keitges said. “We did some really good things. Playing a team that tough like we did shows we are on the right track to becoming the championship program we want to be.”
This was a rough game for the Mustangs, but they hope to win more games in the next few weeks as the season comes to a close.
The next game for the Mustangs is tonight, Oct. 9 at Roland-Story at 6:30 p.m.
