The ride home for La Junta’s Volleyball team was most likely grueling and a lot longer than they wanted. Manitou beat La Junta in 3 sets this last Saturday.

The team, lead by seniors Angela Jensen, Brooke Garretson and Katie Mckeil, survived a late rally from La Junta.

Leader Katie McKeil was just voted KOAA player of the week. “It’s crazy, I’m definitely  not used to it, but it’s an honor. I know all the team is working hard, so it’s really nice to see the hard work pay off.”

McKiel recently committed to the University of Tampa, the 2014 national champions for division 2 collegiate play.

Junior Varsity was able to win in 2 sets and C-Team was also able to win in two sets by a score of 25-11 and 25-11.

Manitou improved to 9-3 record overall and 4-0 in league play. They won against CSCS, the third-ranked 3A Colorado volleyball team, last week
