Conference play has begun and the Stars volleyball team has shown no signs of slowing down. LCC has a conference record of 2-1 and an overall record of 13-2.

The team’s last match was played on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at Southwestern Michigan College. The Stars won the match 3-0. The scores were 25-22, 25-14 and 25-17.

Sophomore Danika Fyan, a middle hitter for the Stars, put on an offensive clinic, leading both teams in kills with 13 and finishing with 15.5 total points.

“The biggest factor that goes into my performance would be the work we put in at practice that allows me to perform during our games, along with the help of my teammates and coaching staff,” Fyan said.

The conference matches feature a different type of play, with them being very scrappy. LCC Coach Emily Quintero said she is aware of this.

“We are treating it a little bit different,” Quintero said. “Everybody is ready to win similar to us because these are the matches that count.”

The volleyball season is now in full swing. Sophomore Ellie Robinson, a right-side hitter, explains how the practices have changed over the 15 games played.

“In the beginning of the season it was three-hour practices working on fundamental stuff,” Robinson said. “Now we are still working hard, but we are working on individual and team goals, making it so we have little to no weaknesses.”

The team has had a shift in energy since conference play has started, and for good reason.

“We’ve all noticed a change, not just in the game but practice as well,” Fyan said. “We’re all very driven to be top in the conference this year and that has motivated us to raise the bar on our level of play.”

Robinson said teamwork is one of the reasons for its success this season.

“The team chemistry is the best out of any teams I’ve been on,” Robinson said. “I love this team. It makes the games so enjoyable and fun.”

The Stars’ next match will be played at home on Tuesday, Sept. 26 against Glen Oaks Community College. Start time is 6:30 p.m.
