The college’s volleyball squad began the season with a showcase of dominance on offense and defense. The Cavs went 4-0 on the weekend in the JCCC Tournament and swept all their matches 3-0, not losing a set all weekend. Head Coach Jennifer Ei was not surprised by the team’s success, having seen what this team is capable of during the preseason.
“It’s a very talented group. They’ve been working very hard in two-a-days,” Ei said. “I think they were ready to prove and show all the hard work they have been doing.”
Ei was happy with the team’s aggressiveness over the weekend, and said the team’s scrappy defense made a difference.
“I liked the way we really scrambled and played defense,” Ei said. “We just played with a nice confidence.”
Sophomore Michelle Tennant was also expecting this type of effort out of the Cavs.
“I’ve seen it in preseason. We just flow really well together,” Tennant said. “We have great servers, defense, setters, hitters, and it all comes together.”
Next up, the Cavs open Conference play at home against Coffeyville tomorrow at 5:30 p.m.
Ei said that Coffeyville is always a very scrappy team.
“We are going to have to play disciplined and very aggressive to win,” Ei said.
