As the season is quickly coming to an end, the Central Warriors volleyball team is running out of time to up its record, and the recent loss to the West Central Blue Devils doesn’t make it any easier.

The Warrior offense was led by Ava Pensel, who accounted for all 12 of the team’s assists, while adding two kills and another ace to her season totals. Team members Brandy Beatty, Chelsia Larson and Lexi Loan all had four kills and Isabelle Groth had three. For the game, the offense had 19 kills on 80 attempts, 20 kill errors and a kill efficiency of -.012. 

As for the defense, it produced two blocks, one by Groth and one by Loan, and 10 total digs: three by Maddy Wille, two by Beatty and five other players had one. 

The Warriors have shown consistency in serving, scoring four aces against the Blue Devils, including three by Keppler and one by Pensel. Central served the ball particularly well, finishing the game with 90.2 percent efficiency.
