Lancers look to finish strong

L’Anse Creuse volleyball can start strong, it just needs to work on finishing.
And the Lancers are hoping they can finish the season strong.
At press time, L’Anse Creuse was 0-7 in the competitive Macomb Area Conference Red Division but had lost several matches by just a couple of points, according to coach Alysia Williams.
“The girls work hard and have the knowledge to be successful, it is just a matter of execution at the right times,” Williams said. “We give away way too many points on unforced errors, which in a momentum sport like volleyball is very crucial.”
Despite its results, Williams said the team has remained strong and persisted through the challenges.
“The team has great chemistry, and even through the frustrations of (the) season, they have stuck together and never given up,” the coach said. “They work hard day in and day out. They support one another and pick each other up when someone is down.”
Williams noted that a pair of players have led the Lancers. On the offensive side of the ball, Natalie Courtright has shown “some great things,” while defensively, senior Aly Pfahl “is having her best season yet.”
The Lancers will look to finish the MAC Red season strong and build from there, but that’s never an easy thing, as the coach noted.
“The MAC Red is always tough, and this season there is just a ton of experience throughout the (division),” she said.
Catch L’Anse Creuse in action next at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 18 at Grosse Pointe North.
