Thursday night, September 2, the Whippet Volleyball Team defeated Johnson Creek in a thrilling five set match. After dropping the first set 19-25, Whitewater found their rhythm and won the next two sets 25-21 and 25-23. In the 4th set, Kindyl Kilar led the Whippets with 17 kills, but the team couldn’t pull out the win, losing 23-25. Whitewater came out in the 5th set on fire, led by Avery Hintz’s 2 serving aces, and went on to win 15-6. Whitewater displayed their offensive firepower and relentless defense in this marathon of a match, setting themselves up to enter conference play next week with great confidence.
I am proud of the resilience and aggressive play of the whole team. Sophomore Aidyn Amundson was asked to step up as a middle and played her role beautifully. She put up a strong block and ran her routes confidently. The Whitewater JV and JV2 teams along with a great fan base, provided a lot of cheering which made the loud Johnson Creek Dome even louder! Thank you to all who attended the match!
