STEPHENSON - Kingsford snapped into gear after a slow start and downed Stephenson 3-1 (28-26, 24-26, 25-17, 25-8) in Great Northern Conference volleyball here Tuesday night.
"It is hard to find the rhythm of the game when you have s slow start," Flivvers coach Mandie Meyer said. "We were letting balls drop between people and Stephenson seemed to frustrate our attackers a bit with their blocking.
"But I was proud of the way the girls were able to fight through it and find ways to score, find ways to pick each other up and just play Flivver volleyball - full of enthusiasm, passion and desire to win."
Carlee Benzie led Kingsford with 15 kills and matched teammate Marissa Menghini with a team-best nine digs.
"Carlee was flying around like a madman in the back row, picking up everything," Meyer said.
Andrea Roell and Margo Wittenbach also turned in double-digit kill performances with 10 each. Wittenbach added eight aces.
Kingsford (4-0 GNC) returns to action Saturday at the Marquette Invite.
