Losing sweep brings hope for future

The South Hamilton Hawks swooped over the PCM High School varsity volleyball team on Sept. 15 in their home nest. The Mustangs came within points of claiming victory over the Hawks, but fell short losing 3-0.
The first set was well fought, as PCM fell to the South Hamilton with a score of 25-20. The next two sets went the same way, with the Mustangs losing 25-19 and 25-19. JV and freshmen also went down to the Hawks.
“The Mustang volleyball teams played hard at South Hamilton but came up short for winning their matches,” Head Coach Krystal Ehn said. “The teams are working hard to make improvements in the areas where errors occurred. The teams are gaining ground and learning from every match played.”
Junior Kayla Jennings led the team in assists with a grand total of 18. Leading the Mustangs in digs was senior Ashley Van Gorp with eight. Van Gorp also stampeded to the front of the pack in kills with seven. As far as blocks go, junior Kaylee Townsend had the most with two.
“A lot of our skills were on point last night, and our games were really close,” senior Karina Van Dyke said. “Our downfall was that people would get down on themselves, and it brought the whole team down, so we need to work on building each other up.”
