Volleyball: Panthers remain perfect with Henning winThe Parkers Prairie volleyball team improved to 10-0 last Tuesday night with a four-game win over Henning.
The Parkers Prairie volleyball team improved to 10-0 last Tuesday night with a four-game win over Henning.
The 19-25 loss in game two was only the third game the Panthers have dropped this season. They took care of business in game one by winning 25-19 before winning games three and four 25-20 and 25-13.
“It wasn’t pretty,” head coach Tanya Powers said. “We had way too many unforced errors, an extremely slow start. We had to play the entire night without our starting setter due to ‘technical difficulties’ and Henning refused to let any ball die. However, we were able to pull together and come up with the win.”
Janessa Sjobeck stepped in for starting setter Shannon Bjerketvedt and performed nicely with 36 assists and 10 digs.
“[She] took the starting setting spot and did a good job giving our hitters the ball,” Powers said. “She hustled to every ball and didn’t let her nerves get in the way too much. Thankfully my girls woke up by the fourth game and reduced the unforced errors and began to hit the ball with some authority.”
Sari Noga led the team in kills once again with 19, while also chipping in with 25 digs. Jazmyn Dorn provided a strong section option at the net with 10 kills, while Krista Alberts helped out with eight kills.
