On Tuesday, September 12th, the Greyhounds hosted the East Valley Knights in their opening season game. The Hounds fell behind early with the Knights stealing the first set with a score of 25-21. "Due to the first loss in the first game, we had to figure out ourselves on the court mentally wise", said Senior Captain, Outside Hitter, Payton Walker. Shortly there after, the Hounds won the following three sets in dominant fashion with scores of 25-22, 25-18, and 25-19. Despite dropping the first set the Hounds looked like the more dominant team throughout the match. Seniors Kayla McLaughlin and Kelsey Nestegard led the way with 9 kills each. With a 2nd place finish in the GNL last year, and 9 returning players, the Hounds will be looking to capture the league title this year. "As a team we will need to stay connected on and off the court, through practices and games to keep winning". The Hounds will be in action again as they will be traveling to the Sundome to play in a invitational on Saturday, September 16th.
