“I think we could have communicated better and at times we seemed to lack effort and enthusiasm,” said head coach Jenn tenBensel about Monday night’s game. The Silver Lake volleyball team took the short drive to Sandy Creek to kick off sub-district play on Monday, October 29. Unfortunately, the Lady ‘Stangs didn’t get the outcome they wanted and fell to the Heartland-Lutheran Red Hornets in 3 sets. The Mustangs came out strong with a 17-25 game. After that, the Mustangs came back battling the Red Hornets for a second set score of 22-25, but lost momentum the third set for a score of 15-25.

Serving one ace each in the game were Madison Miller, Amanda Ehrman, Seirra Watts-Hofstetter, Kerigan Karr, and Quinn Kilmer. Ehrman was able to come away from the game with eight kills followed by Watts-Hofstetter with five, Kerigan Karr and Elizabeth Trausch with four each, Miller and Trista Hanson with two a piece, and Jaden Lewis with one. Digging into the game were Katelyn Karr with 24 digs, Ehrman with 11, Miller with 10, Kerigan Karr with 6, Lewis and Trausch each digging 5, Watts-Hofstetter with 3, and Kilmer with 1. Kerigan Karr had 12 assists in the game, Ehrman had 11, and Hanson came away with 1.

When asked how she felt the team improved over the season, coach tenBensel added: “The entire group has become better passers which let us get our offense going and produce kills! Towards the end of the season, when we were playing aggressively, this bunch was really fun to watch.” Regarding having two seniors on the team, she also added: “The underclassmen have some big shoes to fill, that’s for sure. Losing those two seniors, we will need some girls to step up to be leaders for the team! However, returning all but two, we have a lot of experience coming back! The underclassmen were really dedicated in the off-season to getting better; if they continue to make weights, open gyms, and camps a priority, we should see more improvement next year!”
