Eagles volleyball dominates at home

It  was  nearly  a  packed  house  in  Johnson  Hall  on  Oct. 17  when  the  Kirkwood  Community College’s women’s  volleyball  team  welcomed  the  Ellsworth  Panthers  for  the  final  home  game  of  the  2018-2019  regular  season.    

It  was  also  a  night  for  celebration  as  six  of the  ladies  who  will  not  be  returning  next  season  were  joined  mid-court  by  their  families  for  a  tradition  known  as, Sophomore  Night. 

They were  recognized  for  the  contributions  they  made  to  the  team  as  well  as  given  well  wishes  for  the  future  by  teammates,  coaches  and  fans.  Ranked  #13  in  the  NJCAA,  the  Eagles  flew  out  of  warm  ups  and  into  the  match  with  intensity  and  determination.  

A  quick  and  comfortable  lead  was  established  then  maintained  in  the  first  game,  and  from  there  they  did  not  look  back.  

Kirkwood  easily  won  all  three  games  with  scores  of  25-10,  25-13  and  25-12.    No. 12  Abbi  Tunis  lead  the  team  with  10  kills  and  7  blocks.  No. 17  Chloe  McNeese  hit  the  boards  for  13  digs  and  No. 5  Lauren  Keane  racked  up  28  assists.    

A  road  game  on  Oct.  24  will  go  into  overall  standings  and  help  determine  what  tournament  play  Kirkwood  volleyball  will  participate  in.
