Worcester Prep volleyball to host PACC tournament

(Oct. 17, 2014) The Worcester Prep volleyball team will host the four-school Peninsula Athletic Christian Conference championship tournament today, Friday, beginning at 4 p.m.

Worcester, the No. 4 seed, will compete against the top-seeded Salisbury Christian Jaguars in the first match of the night.

“It’s going to be tough since they’re No. 1,” said Prep Coach Kristin Jehle. “Hopefully if we reduce our errors we can compete with them. We’re doing really well. We’ve just got to fix a few errors and come out strong on Friday.”

The second- and third-seeded teams, the Holly Grove Eagles and Greenwood Mennonite Flames, will go head-to-head after the Worcester–Salisbury Christian match.

The winners of each match will then battle for the conference championship title.

The Lady Mallards, who finished the regular season 4-8, made giant strides since preseason in mid-August.

“We’ve made huge improvements. They’ve come a long way,” Jehle said. “They’re understanding the game of volleyball. It’s all coming together, which is awesome.”
