This particular game recognized Breast Cancer Awareness month, with players and fans sporting pink articles of clothing all around.
The Raiders were in very high spirits that night. The team laughed at their mistakes and were extremely energetic on the bench, and yet were able to keep their composure when it mattered most. Sophomore outside-hitter Emma Pachulski was a spark plug for the team’s spirit and play on the court, and was asked what it’s like when teammates and coaching staff are in exceptional moods.
“Thankfully, they (the coaches) gave us Monday off for practice… the bench energy really hypes you up when you’re on the court,” Pachulski explained.
Each set consisted of high energy and great play from the Raiders. Freshman Annie Holesinger (outside-hitter) and Kylie Oberlin (middle-blocker), and sophomore Danielle Johnston (outside-hitter) all led the team with eight kills or more.
The team’s grit and grind have improved the Raiders’ conference record to 11-1, with an overall record of 22-6. The Raiders next home game will be at 6:30 p.m. Tues., Oct. 22 at the Gerald R. Ford Fieldhouse.
