HOLSTEIN - The Galva-Holstein volleyball team dropped their ninth match of the season Tuesday night, falling in conference play to Maple Valley in three straight; 21-25, 20-25, 20-25.
"We struggled with our serving tonight," said Galva-Holstein head coach Scott Mitchell. "We only served 86.9% (53-61) It is really tough to win big games serving that percentage. I am sure the girls are disappointed, but we need to understand the importance of every point, and right now we don't."
Leading the Pirates on the offensive end of the court Tuesday night, Victoria Andresen and Brooke Wiese turned in nine and eight kills, respectively.
Brea Slaybaugh and Jamie Christensen led in assists with 16 and 14, and Shannon Rohlk led Galva-Holstein at the service line with four aces to her credit.
Defensively, Andresen led the way with 12 digs, and Ashley Buell followed with eight.
Heidi Rollefson led the black and orange in blocks with four, while Nicole Boyle and Courtnie Voss chipped in with two apiece.
The Lady Pirates now sit at 16-9 overall, with a 4-2 mark in Maple Valley Conference play.
Galva-Holstein closes out regular season play next week as they host Battle Creek-Ida Grove Thursday, before taking part in the Sioux City Bishop Heelan volleyball tournament Saturday morning.
Games begin in Sioux City at 8AM.
