BISMARCK, N.D.- Mandan has dropped two of its last three WDA volleyball matches heading into its contest against Jamestown on Tuesday.
Those losses were to the top two teams in the conference, Jamestown and Century. The Braves are sitting in fourth place in the league with a 19-11 overall record. Head Coach Anna Volk talked about her team.
"We started off pretty strong. I think we all know that we'd have a pretty decent team. We're returning just about everybody from last year and even a couple more players with two years of varsity experience so I think we've all been there and our bodies have been playing varsity level but our minds have kind of developed a little bit more this year so there was a little confidence coming into this season," said Volk.
The Braves top offensive option is the middle, that's where Megan Zander calls home. She leads the team in kills and blocks.
"It's been fun. We work really well together because most of us play outside of here so most of us know each other out there so we work well together and we have a lot of chemistry," said Mandan senior Courtney Olson.
Mandan junior Kennedy Harris said: "It's a lot better than last year. I think we have good chemistry together and we're all super close and we just have a good group of girls that play hard until the ball drops."
