Delta's new volleyball coach Beth Nelson returned to her old coaching grounds last week for a volleyball match with the Central Lady Warriors.
Nelson had coached at Central for several years and had fashioned a winning program while there.
Last Tuesday's match between the Panthers and Warriors in Grand Junction was a 3-0 shutout for Central. Central won the first two sets relatively easy with scores of 25-15 and 25-10. Delta upped its game a bit more in the third set but was still outplayed 25-20.
Against the visiting Steamboat Springs Sailors, Delta looked sharp in the first set but fell 25-22.
The Lady Panthers reversed the momentum in set two and pulled away for a 25-17 decision to tie the match at 1-1.
Momentum stayed with Delta in set three and it matched its second-set win with another 25-17 score in set three to go up 2-1. Steamboat was determined to stay with Delta and managed to score a 25-20 win in set four to send the match to the fifth and deciding set.
Delta pulled away to win by a comfortable margin of 15-8 for its third win of the season and first in league play. Delta is 3-7 overall and 1-2 in 4A WSL play. Steamboat fell to 4-3 and 2-1.
Delta is at Battle Mountain and Summit this week for 4A WSL action.blog comments powered by Disqus
