PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth Head Volleyball Coach Doug West believes his team is turning a corner.
Thursdayâ€™s Northern Lakes Conference opener bore him out.
The Lady Pilgrims earned a convincing 25-17, 25-16, 25-18 victory over visiting Wawasee, running their win streak to three matches and opening NLC play at 1-0 at The Rock.
PLYMOUTH â€” An unwanted theme has been developing for the Rockies so far this season.
They play solidly for most of a game but wind up giving up goals in spurts during short breakdowns that ultimately cost them the game.
Such was the case Thursday as Plymouth lost a 2-0 Northern Lakes Conference decision to visiting Goshen on the Rockiesâ€™ home pitch at Kindt Soccerplex.
Itâ€™s not Morgan Ucenyâ€™s loss inÂ her world championship race that had folks around the Plymouth area all upset Thursday morning.
Itâ€™s knowing that she neverÂ gotÂ a chance to win.
Uceny, a 2003 Plymouth High School graduate,Â became entangled with another runner and fell to theÂ ground with 1Â˝ laps remaining in the womenâ€™s 1500-meter final at the IAAF World Track & Field Championships inÂ Daegu, South Korea.
SheÂ got up and eventually finished a distant 10th, jogging across the finish line.
