Pioneer volleyball squad optimistic after loss to Waitsburg-Prescott


MILTON-FREEWATER - Waitsburg-Prescott came to town and left with a three-game non-league volleyball victory Saturday.

W-P downed the Pioneers, 25-12, 25-17, 25-22.

"The girls came out the first game and had a tough loss that was humbling," Mac-Hi coach Kaila Rodighiero said. "Their nerves got the best of them, but both games after that got progressively better. The girls fought for their points and worked hard to get to every ball. They picked each other up and put smiles on their faces.

"I'm excited and really proud of my team," Rodighiero said. "They team they played are tall, experienced and disciplined girls, just an all-around good squad."

Mac-Hi recorded seven aces in the match, and had 23 hits including seven kills.

Cheyenne Kessler had four hits for the Pioneers, Jolene Brannan had seven hits, three for kills, and Avery Wells had five hits with a kill.

"My team competed well and hard, and did a lot of good thing tonight," Rodighiero said. "Those last two games were intense and I wouldn't have asked them to do much different. The first-game jitters are over and I'm looking forward to upcoming games to show what the girls can do."
