Pioneers Stumble at Ancilla in Season-Opener [August 27, 2014]

Celeste Garcia contributed four
assists and three digs for the
Pioneers Wednesday.

PLYMOUTH, Ind. --- The old adage, “It’s not about where you start, but where you finish,” could very well have been applied to the Prairie State College volleyball team Wednesday night.

The Pioneers were tripped up by host Ancilla by scores of 25-6, 25-9, 25-9 in the season-opener for both squads.

PSC (0-1) picked up a solid effort from sophomore outside hitter Stephanie Asauskas (Homewood-Flossmoor H.S.). The 5-foot-7 Asauskas registered a team-high 10 digs and five kills. She also contributed a pair of block assists.

Sophomore defensive specialist Celeste Garcia (Bloom Trail H.S.) added a quartet of blocks and trio of digs.

The Pioneers will hit the court next on Saturday when they travel to Moraine Valley for a quadrangular match.
