PACKWOOD -- The Maharishi
School volleyball team is getting used to hanging around before
making a late move.
Pioneers did it again Tuesday.
The Pioneers, trailing 2-1 to
Pekin, won the final two games for a 16-25, 25-18, 24-26, 27-25,
15-11 SEISC West Division victory against the Panthers at Pekin High
Maharishi School (5-9, 2-1
West) won its second five-game match in three tries this season.
Pekin, is 1-2 in five-gamers.
"The match easily could have
gone either way," Maharishi School coach Anna Shook said. "There
were a couple of key points here and there. I thought the difference
was front-row play because both teams had great defense."
Lanie Goldstein had a big
night for the Pioneers, notching 10 kills and 11 digs. Puki Freeberg
had 23 assists, seven kills and was 21 of 21 serving with five aces.
Sheila Higgins was 25 of 26 serving with seven aces. Laura Tarnoff
had six kills and was 15 of 16 serving with six aces. The Pioneers
had 22 service aces during the marathon match.
"We had several chances to
win, but we just couldn't make it happen," Pekin coach Jina
Heisdorffer said. "I'm pleased with the way we served. We need to
pass the ball better so we can utilize our hitters."
