Panthers rally for 3-2 victory
DENISON — On the verge of losing to an opponent lower in the conference standings, trailing 2-1 after two hard-fought 27-25 losses, the Creston volleyball team regrouped and beat Denison-Schleswig Thursday night, 3-2.
The Panthers won 25-23, 25-27, 25-27, 25-20, 15-8 to improve to 8-3 overall and 2-2 in the rugged Hawkeye 10 Conference. Denison-Schleswig fell to 2-11 and 0-3. But the Monarchs put up a strong fight, nearly pulling off the home victory.
“We were not at the top of our game by any means, but we were doing some good things,” said Creston coach Polly Luther, on the early 2-1 deficit. “Denison is a pretty decent team, especially compared to last year. They are good-sized, and they have a tremendous libero. Their back row was good.”
