Kimball's streak broken to BBE

The Kimball Cubs volleyball team loses a heartbreaker for the conference title to BBE on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2009. The Cubs came out strong leading most of the first set, and at one point was up 23-20. A momentum swing shifted on a lift call, and the Cubs couldn't bounce back. The Cubs lost the first set 23-25. In the second set, the Cubs struggled to find a rhythm against a solid block and a scrappy defense; although they battled, they couldn't get it done. They lost the second set 17-25. With a switch in the line up, the Cubs rejuvenated their energy, pushing hard in aggressive swinging and serving. The Cubs won the third set 25-22. In the fourth and final set of the match, BBE found their rhythm and the Cubs just couldn't pick it back up again - too many unforced errors. They lost 15-25.
