St. Clair County Community College’s Lady Skippers started slow in the first set, but quickly picked up the pace to secure a win over Schoolcraft College. The Sept. 16 game showed both teams being evenly matched most of the time (15-25, 25-23, 25-20, 25-17).
The first set saw Schoolcraft topple the Skippers, but the set proved to be a warm-up match for both teams. They both battled furiously in the following 2 sets, with SC4 claiming victory with just a few points to spare.
The last set showed the well-practiced defense of the Skippers, providing them with the 3-1 score that left the SC4 athletes winners.
This win allows the SC4 Skippers to start strong at the beginning of the season, and proceed with much earned confidence.
“Going into the game, I was excited to see how we would do. This is our first actual conference game that we’ve played in. I knew we were going to be pretty evenly matched up but I thought we played well today,” said Couch Shannon Pummill of Schoolcraft.
“In the beginning, I told the girls they needed to improve their defense or they wouldn’t be able to win. And that’s what got us the win; blocking,” SC4 Head Coach Chuck Weisner said.
