Netters on strong run

The Kirkwood women’s volleyball team dominated the undermanned South Eastern Community College (SECC) on September 30 in Johnson Hall at Kirkwood Community College. 

SECC only had seven dressed players to test the Lady Eagles and it proved costly.  The Eagles fired out of the gates, dominating their opponents in every statistical category. Kirkwood led from the service line, at the net, and inblocks, kills and digs. 

The outcome was a 3-0 win in just under an hour. The final score of game one was 25-6, game two, 25-13 and game three, 25-11.  

Madsy Richards led the team in kills and digs with 11 and 10. Both Halle Lueck and Erin Wenzel continued to provide leadership for the team. Halle is currently ranked second in the nation in assists, and Erin is ranked second in the nation in kills, according to the NJCAA.  

Kirkwood moved to 20-8 overall and 5-0 in conference play but lost to Southwestern Community College in Creston on Oct. 7. The team lost in the fifth match tiebreaker, which was the Eagles’ first conference loss.

The Lady Eagles made a comeback Oct. 9 and 10 at the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) invitational tournament. They won three matches and fell short in one.  They handled a tough Heston College team 3-1, won over North Dakota State College of Science 3-1 and blanked MCC Longview 3-0 before falling to the number one-ranked Parkland College, 0-3. 

The Eagles will compete at home Oct. 14 against DMACC.

They will then be on the road to Peoria, Ill., Oct. 16 – 17.
