Greene County ended the high school volleyball season with a 15-17 match record after losing to Kuemper Catholic at Kuemper High School in Carroll on Thursday night. The third ranked Knights were 25-16, 25-21, 25-15 winners over the Rams in a Class 3A Region 3 semifinal to improve to 25-4 on the season. Kuemper Catholic will face North Polk (Alleman) in the Region 3 final on Nov. 5.
Greene County head coach Donna Carhill has just one senior on the team. The loss meant the end of Chelsi Wilkens’ career for the Rams. All the other Rams playing on Thursday night were one freshman and several juniors.
Coach Carhill said even though the loss was disappointing, she thought her team battled well against one of the top teams in the state. The Rams trailed most of the night, but did lead at various times in the second set.
