Lady Tigers run win streak to six
ENID, Okla. — Facing Northern Oklahoma College for the fourth time this season, the Cowley County Community College volleyball team made sure the outcome was the same as it stayed unbeaten against the Lady Jets with a 30-22, 30-13, 27-30, 30-13 win Monday in Enid, Okla.
The victory was Cowley’s sixth in a row, improving the Lady Tigers’ record to 18-8 on the season. However, coach Joanna Pryor thought the team’s performance in a game-three loss was disappointing.
“We had a lot of people standing around, it seemed like we had more spectators than players that game,” Pryor said. “But, I thought we played pretty good the other three games.”
Cowley won 11 of the 13 games played between the two teams as it finished the season series with a 4-0 record against the Lady Jets.
In Monday’s victory, sophomore outside hitter Heather Grubbs led the Lady Tigers with 19 kills and 10 digs. Grubbs has led Cowley in kills in each match during the team’s recent winning streak. In the past six matches, Grubbs has 83 kills.
Sophomore right-side hitter Lynsey MacInnis came up with 15 kills in the win, and sophomore Libero Ashley Dunavan also played well, adding a team-high 15 digs.
Cowley got a good performance from each of its front line players against NOC, finishing with 31 blocks as a team.
“We blocked really well the entire match,” Pryor said. “When you have a good blocking game it kind of picks up everything else.”
The Lady Tigers will be back in action Wednesday when they play at Independence at 6:30 p.m. Cowley is currently 5-1 in the Jayhawk Conference Eastern Division.
“We are going to have to be ready for them,” Pryor said. “Our hitting is pretty consistent, so as long as we block and pass well, we should be fine.
