Lewis and Clark Community College women’s volleyball team wrapped up this season with a win in the regional playoffs for the first time in several years.
The volleyball team opened up this season with two consecutive wins of 3-0 against Robert Morris University-Springfield and Southeastern Union, MO.
Over the course of this season, the volleyball team has won 22 games out of the 38 they have played. They have an average of 10.57 ‘kills per set,’ which means the team averages 10.57 hits that definitely win a point per set; and a set is one third of a game (best 3 out of 5 games played). The team’s hitting percentage is .165 percent this season.
“We definitely had a more dominating season this year, winning many more games than last year,” said defensive specialist, Drew Myers.
Myers continued, “We had a great group last year like we did this year. However, the girls that came in had a lot more club experience and it showed. The program just keeps getting more and more talented girls.”
The Trailblazers faced off against Lincoln College on Wednesday Nov. 4 and won 3-1. L&C was the number 4 seed, or competitor, in the tournament, and Lincoln was number 5 seed.
On Saturday Nov. 7 L&C played against Parkland College and lost 3-0. The loss with Parkland marks the end of this year’s volleyball season.
“Our team has worked very hard this year and gotten better each and every week. They have a certain resiliency and confidence that allows them to remain mentally and emotionally tough throughout every match,” said head volleyball coach, Jim Hunstein.
The L&C volleyball team had made it to the regional playoffs, but they didn’t win; however, they remain strong and hopeful for next season.
