Kelsey Wingo had 12 kills to lift Modesto Junior College's volleyball team to a 30-19, 30-25, 23-30, 30-26 victory over host Merced College on Wednesday.
Modesto coach Dave Winfrey said the team was a little unfocused after Merced hitter Kristen Kronberg rolled an ankle and left in the first game. The Pirates (1-4) missed 10 serves in the third game. Stephanie Doerksen did have seven aces.
"Merced did a really good job. They all stepped up and filled the gap," Winfrey said. "The positive thing about it is we picked it up when we needed to to get the win."
