Aggressive Mustangs sweep Eagles at Saydel
SAYLOR — A week ago, when Prairie City-Monroe’s volleyball team fell in straight sets to North Polk at home, the team’s coach Mollie Keitges said she thought they came out a little bit too timid. That was not the case on Tuesday against Saydel, when the Mustangs got their most decisive win of the season, taking down the Eagles in straight sets (25-15, 25-15, 25-23).
“They were much more aggressive,” Keitges said. “I loved our defense tonight. They weren’t letting balls drop. The girls were flying on the floor to pick balls up. So, the defense started it, and our hitters were very smart, knowing when to swing and play small ball.”
Saydel jumped out to an early lead in the first set, going up 7-4, but that faded quickly. A side out gave the ball to PCM, and the Mustangs wouldn’t give it back until they had the lead. Senior Abbi Gilson served up an ace to pull within one at 7-6. The next point was a kill by Cassidy Van Veen. Lexi Kain spiked one to the floor to give PCM its first lead.
