Junior Ashton Isch had 8 kills and 2 digs. Junior Alison Ornbaun had 12 assists setting a team best and also had 7 digs defensively. The Lady Builders were in the game but could not seal the deal.
“We prepare each team differently and practice great, but we just need to stay focused to finish out the game,” said Carolina Garbato, head volleyball coach.
The Lady Builders hit a .071% but had 44 digs which allowed them to stay close with Sterling.
“We need to stay positive and not get down on ourselves after a few missed points,” said Ashton Isch, junior athletic training major.
“If we all play our game like I know we can, we will come out victorious,” said Alison Ornbaun, junior biology major. The Lady Builders are now 1-9 in the KCAC and 4-14 overall.
The next match will be at 7 p.m Oct. 10 in Hillsboro against the Tabor Blue Jays.
