Varsity Volleyball Falls to Wellspring

Despite a slow start and loss to Wellspring it was exciting to see the Lady Rats climbing out of their slump.  Energy, commitment, and better passing allowed our setters, Caroline McKnight and Sydra Timmer, to put up some great opportunities for our attackers especially Sierra Hole.  We saw great play all around with focus on reading the play and defending well, which kept Wellspring out of system and giving Black River a lot of free balls to set up.
