The Indians volleyball team honored Kelsey Ward for Senior Night on Oct. 3 before playing Rigby and Malad.
“She had a great final home game by finishing the night with five kills against Malad and 10 kills against Rigby, leading the Indians in kills for that match,” said Coach Bridgett Knapp. “She will definitely be missed next year. She works really hard and stays positive with her teammates.”
Preston came out a little slow the first set and lost 16-25, but came back the second set and beat Rigby 25-22.
“We couldn’t hold the momentum,” said Knapp, “which is something we have struggled with all year and lost the next two sets 17-25 and 15-25. Against Malad the Indians worked really hard to win a close first set 28-26, then lost the next two 18-25, with the final set being 11-15.
“As a team we blocked much better against Malad, which is something that we have been working on a lot lately so it was good to see. We are getting better and better; we just are still struggling getting over the hump and just converting that great play to wins.”
Preston played Pocatello on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at Pocatello. “We won one set of four,” said Knapp. “Alexa VanVleet did a great job for us. She led the team in kills for the second week in a row with seven on the night. It was a night of ups and downs.”
“This week we finish the season by playing Tuesday against Bonneville at Idaho Falls. Then we have a week and a half of practices to get to the district tournament that will be on Oct. 18 and 19 at Pocatello High School.”
