MCC volleyball takes down Statesmen JV

The Marshalltown Community College volleyball team earned a victory on Sunday afternoon as the Tigers took down the William Penn University junior varsity squad in four sets, 25-23, 25-17, 26-28, 25-19.

Outside hitter Jesenia Colbert said the team had a few new faces on the court, which led to the slower start in the first set.

“We changed our lineup today and I think we were able to speed up and execute our offense better,” she said after the win.

MCC had lost its previous four matches after starting the season 7-0, so Colbert said she was happy to get back on the winning side of things.

“It feels good to get a win after four tough losses, this game gave us the momentum we need to get back in our rhythm,” Colbert said.

The Tigers return to the court on Wednesday when they face Iowa Central at home at the Student Activity Center starting at 7 p.m.
