Girls’ volleyball had a match against Hersey on Sept. 29. They lost the match 2-1, but completed the entire match. Their season record is now 14-5.
Prospect lost the first game 25-13. Senior Brenda Kendziera explained during the first game the team wasn’t focused. Senior Michelle Haaning agrees and said nerves were high during the first game. But Prospect came back and won the second game 25-17.
“In the second game I think we really came together as a team,” Kendziera said. “We played the match of our lives and hopefully we do that again because I don’t think we’ve ever played such good volleyball.”
Prospect lost the third game 25-23. Haaning explained Hersey consistently went to their outside during the game where one of their strongest hitters was. She thought Hersey having a lot energy during the game and a big fan section gave them a little bit of an edge. Haaning is still very proud of her team.
“In the second and third game I really can’t complain about anything,” Haaning said. “I’m really proud of my team and we played awesome, but during the first game it was definitely just nerves. It was not our team [during the first game] and it was just a little hectic on the floor.”
Kendziera explained it was a really tight match and both teams played well.
“[Hersey] didn’t do anything special,” Kendziera said. “It was honestly just good volleyball between both teams.”
Haaning hopes the team beats Hersey in the upcoming home game on October 15 and gets a lot of people there to support the team.
The team hopes to get first in conference and make it farther in regionals than they did last year.
