Girls' volleyball loses to Wheeling after strong start

The girls’ volleyball team lost its match against Wheeling Tuesday night despite a hard fought battle in the first and second games.
The girls, who came into the match feeling prepared, won the first game, 25-21. The second game was close with Prospect in the lead 22-21 when Wheeling player Kellie Kuzmanic tied the game with a kill. Wheeling eventually won 25-23 due to a hitting error, and in game three, took control and won, 25-13.
Senior middle hitter Sarah Hunt contributed a match high 13 kills, while Junior Sage Rebecca had nine kills to go along with her 14 assists and three blocks. Junior Shea Gallus also had a big game with nine assists.

The team is now in third place in the MSL East, behind Hersey and Wheeling.
Coach Mike Riedy said that while they did have moments of good net control, they will have to work on passing in practice, which, according to Riedy, was one of the main reasons for the loss.
A day after the game, Riedy was just trying to stay positive. “If I say anything, it’s going to be way too negative, and I don’t want to be that negative.”
The team will be preparing for the Knights’ Invite, which will be held at home on Saturday. The girls will play five different teams with matches beginning at nine in the morning.
