YAKIMA — After a slow start, Wenatchee bounced back to defeat Eisenhower in Volleyball in straight sets, 25-23, 25-9, and 25-12 on Thursday night. The Panthers were down 17-23 in the first set when Jenna Osburn served out to finish the set 25-23. Wenatchee improves to 5-1 in the Big 9 and 5-2 overall while Eisenhower drops to 1-4 in the conference and 1-4 overall.

“It was one of those weird matches where we came out flat, not playing our style of volleyball,” said Wenatchee Coach Connor Metcalfe, “We want to dictate the pace by hitting quality serves (and) control every first ball… we want to be quality. The first set we didn’t do that, but sets 2 and 3 we did, and I saw a lot of good things from the whole team tonight.”
