The Kimball volleyball team lost a non-conference match at Upsala last Tuesday, Oct. 7, by a 1-3 final score. Game scores were 14-25, 27-25, 16-25, and 22-25. Coach Scott Heinen comments ?ÄúI need to do a better job of holding players accountable for their actions.
Our agenda is designed around a high-percentage system of high-percentage serving and high-percentage set decisions. We could use a more diverse attack but only under a high-percentage process, which has to be founded with high-percentage passing and setting.
Our defense is designed to be high-percentage in that multiple players are responsible for each ball that comes to our side; therefore, most balls should be touched and controlled. If the set isn?Äôt in a great location, players need to find a place to score, or give them a difficult ball; but FOR SURE a ball in the court so they have an opportunity to make a mistake or allow us to have a transition play. When we aren?Äôt executing these things, I need to do a better job of replacing players or find other ways to ensure the accountability. I cannot let my, or the players?Äô emotions of the moment determine our success.
Our success cannot be based on the competition of the night. We need to meet the expectations put forth on us if we want to extend our season. When we talk about our objectives for the season as a group that is what we want; so I need to do better in my job and ensure that there is accountability.?Äù
