Volleyball sets school win record

Thursday, November 10, 2011

The Fort Scott Community College volleyball season finished much differently than in years past. The Greyhounds concluded their season with wins over Cottey and Northeastern Oklahoma A&M the weekend of Oct. 28-29.

Last year, the Greyhounds finished with a 5-29 record. This year's team was bound and determined to start a new tradition, a tradition of winning. They did exactly that, finishing with a record of 25-10.

"These young ladies have set a standard for this program. I am very proud of them," irst-year head coach Lindsay Hill said. "They accomplished a goal never achieved by any other volleyball team in school history: they won 20-plus games. For any team, that is a big accomplishment. But for a first-year rebuilding program, that is what you call a success."

Freshman right-side hitter Paula Okrutna was named Player of the Week by the Jayhawk Conference for the final week of the season. She tallied 93 kills, 4.5 blocks, and 32 digs for the week. She also put up a .364 hitting percentage. Okrutna led the nation in kills per set with 4.98.
