Cubs win again!



C-team volleyball

By Kim Pelzer, coach

Cubs beat Rockford at Rockford Thursday, Sept. 13, for their first conference victory. Kimball traveled to Rockford and was able to jump to an early lead in set one, and never let up defeating the Rockets 25-9. Set 2 was a little different story as the Cubs let up their game plan and found themselves behind early, made a comeback and eventually lost to the Rockets 21-25. That brought set 3 and the Cubs were not about to relinquish the match to the Rockets, so our first server of the set served 13 unanswered points to 0 for the Rockets. Kimball's next server finished the set and match for a victory at 15-1. Next week the Cubs have 2 home matches against Norwood-Young America Monday, Sept. 17, and their third conference match of the season against Pierz Thursday, Sept. 20. Go CUBS!
