Money ShotFerocity and raw passion covered the gym September 22 as the Lady Skippers went head-to-head in an exhausting five set game versus Oakland Community College. The Skippers emerged from the game victorious 23-25, 27-25, 19-25, 28-26, and 15-11, bringing them up to 20-1 for the season.
Shawnteze Williams, a 21-year-old Skippers fan from Port Huron, said, “The Skippers did a lot of things right, you feel me? The offense and defense gotta be equal or you’ll lose your footing. Oakland a good team, but Skippers are better”.
As stated by Paul Levandowski, an assistant coach for the Lady Skippers, “Oakland is a good team and coached very well, but our kids gathered themselves together and that’s ultimately how we won. I’m real proud of them”.
Kristen Michaelis, the head coach, spoke with pride in her voice, “I feel good that we won. This wasn’t one of our strongest shows, but we hung in there despite the ball rarely hitting the floor on Oakland’s side. I’m proud of how we responded and hung in there”.
