Volleyball hopes to get on a winning streak as they go up against Independence in District 9-5A play at 5:45 p.m. Friday at Independence.

“We are going to have to block much better than we did in the first meeting,” head volleyball coach Clark Oberle said via email. “Also, our offense will have to be much more efficient.”

The team is coming off a 3-2 win on Tuesday against Frisco.

“I’m expecting us to go out there and play hard and win tonight,” senior Lauryn Hill said. “Last time I think we beat ourselves cause we didn’t play to our full potential but I believe the outcome will be different this time.”

Every win counts towards the chance of making the playoffs.

“It is very important to win,” junior Emma Cacurak said. “Every game matters right now so that we can make it to the playoffs.”

This game is also projected to be a very important night in the career of Hill.

“Lauryn Hill is 3 kills away from 1000 career kills,” Oberle said. “We expect her to achieve this milestone on Friday.”
