C-team Cubs Lose to Eagles By Kim Pelzer, coach Kimball played in Watkins Thursday, Oct. 6, againstthe Eagles C-team for the Eagles' Homecom- ing. The Cubs were unable to win the match and lost in 3 sets. Game scores were: 15-25; 25-22 and 8-15. As always, the Cubs know they could have/should have beat the Eagles but fell short in their serv- ing game again, and allowed balls to drop that were playable. We con- tinue to see improvements in our play and we are very excited about that, as we are one of a few teams that strives to run an offense and defense. On Thursday we saw evi- dence of that with two huge blocks from our middles. The team was pumped to have that accomplish- ment. Kimball is now 2-3 in the CMC and 6-8 overall. Go CUBS! C-team volleyball Oct. i0 By Kim Pelzer, coach Cubs Win! The C-team at Kimball hosted Upsala Monday, Oct. 10. It was the beginning of Homecoming week and the Cubs wanted and needed a victory. Kimball began the math slowly and did not exe- cute their volleyball skills, and therefore lost set one 14-25. In set two, the Cubs decided it was time to "pull together" what they have learned and became a team. They did things well and came away with a victory and the chance of winning the match, forcing a third set. Set two score was in Kimball's favor at 25-28. It was now time for the Cubs to step up and not get themselves in a hole score-wise. They let Upsala stay with them for the first 7 points, and then kept chiseling away with their serves, passes, sets, hits and blocks Io win set three 15-7. This puts the Cubs at 7-8 overall and they remain 2-3 in the CMC with a conference match against Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Thursday, Oct. 13, for their homecoming match. Go CUBS!
