Lady ‘Jackets volleyball teams fall to Kickapoo Chiefs

The lady ‘Jackets volleyball teams all three fell to Kickapoo Sept. 19 at home. Kickapoo’s varsity team was second in the state last year and remains a very competitive team this year with a 17-4 record coming into the match Tuesday. The ‘Jackets battled but lost in three sets, 22-25, 13-25, 16-25. “I'm not sure that our set scores necessarily painted a true picture of our performance against Kickapoo. Kickapoo had us outsized at every position along the net, and carrying a roster of 11 seniors also brings in a lot of experience and mental toughness on their end,” coach Jenny Collins said.
