“When playing Kokomo in the past they have been a pretty good team,” Hettinger said. “We were expecting more than what we saw during warmups. We all played very well last night. Senior Katrina Sejour had seven kills. She was on fire. Kokomo had some weak spots that we found and that helped us win our sets.”

Sejour contributed to the Berries with seven kills, three digs, and one block. 

“We have NCCs next weekend, and it will be tough,” Hettinger said. “All the teams are very good this year. I am just hoping that we will have fun during the day and keep our energy high.”

The Wildkats are ranked fourth in the NCC. The Berries are ranked tenth.

The NCC tournament will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8. Following the NCC tournament, sectionals will begin Thursday, Oct. 13.

“For sectionals, we are hoping to move on but for right now we don’t know who we play,” Hettinger said. “Whatever team we do draw, I just hope we finish the season by having fun and being able to say we accomplished something this season.”
