Imagine Prep-Superstition’s late-game volleyball struggles continue, as the Lady Panthers lost in four games to ASU Prep Poly on Sept. 4, and in five games to Heritage Academy-Gateway on Sept. 6 at Panther Arena.
Heritage-Gateway defeated Prep 25-16, 24-26, 25-15, 25-27, 15-5.
“We have some injuries and some rotation issues right now,” Heritage-Gateway Coach Chad Kreikamp said. “But we’re coming together as a team and working together. And (Imagine Prep) dug it out in the fourth game at 27-25. They showed some heart. We rallied when we needed to.”
ASU Prep Poly prevailed over Imagine Prep 25-11, 25-18, 18-25, 25-18.
“The girls beat each other up and that creates a negative space,” Lady Panthers Coach Charlyne Long said. “That’s not the team that we are. This is the first time I saw attitudes on the court. It was difficult.
“The girls understand that we’re family. It’s a new season, a new team, new faces and we all want to build each other up. We all have the same goal and we lost that today, but everyone understands what needs to be done.”
