After a rough 1-3 start to the volleyball season, Cheryl Voelker’s Dallas Center-Grimes Fillies spikers have found their niche with three straight wins and a plus .500 record with the most recent win over rival, ADM.
DC-G’s other wins during this stretch include a 3-set sweep over Grinnell, and a 5-set nail biter win against Oskaloosa.
The Fillies are much younger this season than they were a year ago, and young teams sometimes need a little time to adjust to the speed of the Varsity level and time to define roles.
Lately though, DC-G Volleyball looks like a team that may be poised to compete for another Little Hawkeye Conference title.
Lexi Protzman and Grace Mikota are leading the Fillies in kills this season, with Kenna Jackson and Jillian Jannsen as the assist leaders.
Defensively, Seniors Grace Mikota, Sydney Anderson, and Isabelle Wood have lead Voelker’s squad in digs.
DC-G Volleyball is on the road tonight with a match at Indianola set to begin at 7:30pm.
