The Lady Skippers volleyball team were ahead by two sets to one and it seemed the girls had another win coming their way, but Schoolcraft College came back to deny them the satisfaction of victory.

When the game was done, Coach Chuck Weisner believed, “We started to thinking that it was over and it was not.”

On the same lines, an outside hitter for the Lady Skippers, Martha Veihl said, “We kinda let it slip away.”

“They wanted it more than we did and we kinda just broke down at the end,” said Jillian Verbeke, an opposite hitter of SC4’s team said.

But on a positive note, Verbeke found it was great to finally be on their own court for the first time this season.

“It’s always a lot more thrilling when you’re playing on your court that you practice on everyday…when you lose, you’re a bit disappointed, but it makes you push harder to win the next one,” said Verbeke.

After the game against Schoolcraft College, Weisner, focused on blocking by saying his cry of, “If we don’t block we’re not going to win.”

Well following their first home game, the Lady Skippers went to Delta College and won in three straight sets.

After the well deserved victory for Lady Skippers volleyball team, Viehl believed that the team wanted to redeem after a tough loss at home with the win over Delta.

After the win over Delta Community College, SC4’s Lady Skippers are at a record of 9 wins and 4 losses total.

Their next home game will be Oct. 4.
