KMS is next Owls VB victim
The Owls started off a little sluggish in the first set having some troubles with their passing and getting in the rythmn of their offense but were able to pull out a 25-22 win. Set two saw the Owls struggle badly with their passing and allowed KMS to stand on the serving line and they were unable to even get the ball over the net at all during this match losing this set 25-9.
Sets three and four saw the Owls get back into their offense slowly and were able to get some serving streaks of their own to win both sets and the match.
"I think anyone who watched and the girls and I will say that this was not our best match and were probably lucky to come away with a win after passing 36 percent for the night," commented coach Kristi Fehr. "We made a lot of mental errors in the basics of the game with our serving and passing that we really need to elimate the closer we get to play-offs. The one thing that I thought we did well tonight was our blocking where we were able to shut down some of their big hitters with some big blocks."
Kendra Schmidgall led the way with 23 kills for the night, and she needs just two more kills to go over the 1,000 kill mark. Courtney Greiner played another solid match at the net having 11 kills and three blocks. Aria Walstad led the team with 38 set assists and Alison Reese was the only Owl to go perfect from the serving line going 10 for 10 and leading with 10 digs.
This brings the Owls record to 21-1 overall and 5-0 in conference play.
