Kimball's volleyball program opened their season against Annandale on Tuesday, Aug. 31. The Cubs are new at every level of play but have been working hard and were ready for their first match to get under way. The C-Team started out slow and nervous but held their own and came on stronger and stronger as the match progressed. The Cubs lost in two sets by scores of 12-25 and 17-25.
