PREP ROUNDUP: Panthers roll

Lewis Cass, Pioneer girls golf teams record wins

Pioneer’s volleyball team has moved up a couple spots in the Class A poll up to No. 5 after last week’s big week.

The Panthers cruised to a win over visiting Peru in three games Wednesday, 25-11, 25-16, 25-10.

Cassidy Corn had 10 kills and six blocks for the Panthers (9-3), and Gabriel Dunlap and Sarah Dorris added eight kills apiece. Lindsey Miller set up 17 assists.

Kayte Miller had a team-high 13 digs. Dorris added four aces.

“We need to continue to get better,” Pioneer coach Rod Nies said. “Our ball control has got to get better. Our serve receive has to get better. Our hitters need to make better decisions. We’re getting there. It’s a slow process. I’m looking forward to next week where we have a week off when we can practice the whole week. It’ll be nice to get some extra touches and work on things we continue to get better on.”

The Panthers travel to North White tonight.

“It’s our second conference match. They’ll have Fan Appreciation Night which they typically have when we play there,” Nies said. “The girls will have to be ready to play. Two years ago they gave us a scare for a game and a half before they finally folded.”

“From where we were going into the season, and with only four players, I am very happy on where we are right now. We have the conference meet at Fox Prairie Golf Course on Saturday, so I am looking forward to it,” Cass coach Charlie Jones said.
