It's no secret the Stormers women's volleyball team is on a winless streak. Their current track record is 0 - 10.
What is a surprise it that despite this they are still energetic and excited to play.
On the 11th the Stormers faced off with the Chaparrals from Glen Ellyn, IL at Alverno College. The Chaparrals are currently 6-12 team.
The Chaparrals took the lead by scoring seven of the first eight points. By the first time out the Stormers were down 6-16. Point number ten for the Stormers was scored with a good spike by #8 LyndsayKrogman.  
Unfortunately the Chaparrals brought the heat, and the first game ended 25 - 11 in their favor.
Game two seemed like Déjà vu with the Chaparrals taking an early lead of 8-1. The Stormers responded with scoring the next eight of eleven points.
The second time out was marked by an 18 - 11 advantage to the Chaparrals. The game ended with the Chaparrals winning 25 - 12.
The last game went along the same lines as game one and two, Chaparrals leading into the time out, then ultimately winning 25 -7.
A good save was made by #5 KaThao, unfortunately the after being passed back and forth the Chaparrals took the point.
The volleyball ladies strategy is 5-1 offense, which means they use one setter.
Throughout the game the ladies cheered each other on, and remained determined to succeed.
Despite the loss Coach Brian Misslich remained upbeat, "The ladies on the team are in their first year." He commented. "Some of these ladies have never even played volleyball before, but every time we play they keep improving"
*There is a game on the 16th and the 18th...These will have already been played by the time this is printed. So I am not sure how you want me to handle it?
