Mackenzie Murphy led the Mustangs with eight kills and 10 digs.

Kayla Daggett had 26 assists. Gabi Delsing had 17 digs.


No. 8 Eagles split with ranked teams

EAST PEORIA, Ill. - The eighth-ranked Kirkwood women's volleyball team split matches with two other ranked teams Friday at the Illinois Central tournament.

The Eagles were nipped by 13th-ranked Illinois Central in their first match, 25-17, 25-21, 19-25, 21-25, 15-5 despite a strong comeback in the third and fourth sets.

Kirkwood swept 16th-ranked Moraine Valley, 25-23, 25-15, 25-22, in its second match of the day.

Abbie Ericson led the Eagles against Illinois Central with 14 kills and eight blocks. Anna Gorsich had 11 kills and 16 digs. Madi Wagaman contributed 36 assists. Maranda Wheelock had 26 digs and Wagaman had 13. Taylor Carey blocked seven shots and Maggie Peters had five.


MidAmerica Nazarene sweeps Mustangs

OLATHE, Kan. - The Mount Mercy women's volleyball team was swept by MidAmerica Nazarene, 25-23, 25-23, 25-19, in a Heart of America Conference match Friday.

Maddie Bell topped the Mustangs with nine kills and Abbi Tunis had eight. Kayla Daggett finished with 26 assists.

Haley Stecklein made 20 digs. Gabi Delsing had 15 digs and Daggett had 10.


No. 8 Eagles rally past DMACC

The Kirkwood women's volleyball team has been consistently  inconsistent this season, including Wednesday night's match against  DMACC.

"We had our ups and our downs," said Coach Jill Williams.

Fortunately for the eighth-ranked Eagles, there were more ups than downs.

Kirkwood rallied for a 17-25, 25-19, 25-21, 25-22 victory over the  Bears in an ICCAC conference match at Johnson Hall.

The Eagles have modest records (for them) of 12-6 overall and 2-1 in  the conference. They've whipped top-ranked Parkland this year, but  were swept by unranked Southeastern at home.

Consistency is the key.

"It's definitely a goal. We talk about it all the time," said Anna  Gorsich, a 6-foot freshman from Linn-Mar.

"It has to do with our energy not being there and our intensity not  always being there. So that's definitely one of our goals, to stay  consistent."
