The Knoxville Volleyball Squad sure knows how to make things exciting. The Panthers defeated Winterset last night in non-conference action in five sets 23-25, 25-11, 25-22, 21-25, and 15-11. Coach Liz Sanders told KNIA/KRLS the team play was better last night and the girls again had to fight through adversity after dropping the first set and being forced to a fifth and deciding set. Cheyenne Jones had 20 kills while Ashley Hawkshead finished with four aces and Rikki Hall, who Sanders said had one of her best matches of the season, had seven blocks. Knoxville improved to 14-and-13 on the season and will head to the Pella Invitational tomorrow and will face their archrivals right out of the gate in a bright and early nine A-M match.
