WIC searches for consistency
IRON RIVER—The volleyball postseason is still a few weeks away, but as the regular season heads into its final third, teams will start looking to build some momentum and consistency.
For the West Iron County Wykons, that has been a season-long ordeal. For much of the campaign, coach Brenda Grubbs’ squad has endured a bumpy ride with wins alternating with losses.
That trend continued last week as the Wykons swept Chassell at home on Oct. 8 before they were swept in a road match at Negaunee on Oct. 10.
In their first match of the week against Chassell, the Wykons took control of the match late in the first set and never really looked back as they defeated the Panthers 25-19, 25-16, 25-16 at Charles Greenlund Gymnasium.
With the opening set knotted at 19-all, West Iron (4-4 duals) strung together the final six points to take the opener and led basically wire-to-wire from there.
Courtney Reitmeyer recorded a kill and Jordan Shamion finished the set off with an ace.
