SIOUX CENTER-George-Little Rock knew it would have a tough time against Siouxland Conference foe Sioux Center Thursday, Sept. 6, but the Mustangs did not give their full effort in a 25-15, 25-6, 25-9 volleyball defeat.

Coach Amy Schmidt said this was simply not George-Little Rock’s best effort.

“Our girls have worked hard and have shown improvement every night out, however, tonight was not one of them,” Schmidt said. “We struggled right out of the chute and didn’t bounce back very well. We hustled, we were scrappy, but just didn’t have the polished passes, sets or attacks that we are used to seeing out of ourselves.”

Coming into this match, Schmidt was hoping George-Little Rock would put up a better fight.

“We were excited about this match all day and were very focused prior to the start, but for some reason fell apart slowly against a very good Sioux Center team. We could not pick ourselves up effectively to get back into our game,” Schmidt said. “Sioux Center had a great night of getting us to make unforced errors and play out of our system. We have to continue to work on our self-confidence, as well as our team confidence, and learn to trust our teammates to fulfill their individual responsibilities for the betterment of the team.”

Rebecca Krull led the Mustangs with three kills. Makenna Arends and Madison Eben each had two kills. Madilyn Matuska and Michaella Johnson each passed for four assists. On defense, Kayla Gerken had five digs. Julia Storm grabbed four digs. Makenzie Fugitt had three assisted blocks. Krull and Eben each had two assisted blocks. On the service stripe, Gerken went 7-for-7 with no aces. Johnson went 5-for-5 with no aces. Matuska went 4-for-4 with no aces.
