A quote from Dalton Risner, entirely in weather-specific euphemisms:
"We're in a storm. It's hailing hard on our team right now. We have to be able to push through that storm." — Dalton Risner— David Scott Fritchen (@DScottFritchen) October 15, 2017

And finally, support and camaraderie from Captain Sisco himself:

I have nothing specific to say about the game itself. You watched it, you read about it, you know how it went.
I’m not angry. I’m not even disappointed. I have now reached a zen level of indifference.
Despite a rally in the third set, Kansas State lost a second straight match to a ranked opponent. The VolleyCats lost 3-1 (25-22, 25-21, 22-25, 25-11) to #25 Baylor. After the Bears dropped the third set, they ran off eight straight points and ultimately an 11-point lead in the fourth to take the match.
Kylee Zumach led the team with 22 kills, while Bryna Vogel had a team-high 22 digs. Susie Fritz admitted that the team played well, but lacked consistency. According to her, despite the results, her young squad is making definite progress.
The VolleyCats are back on court next Saturday when they travel to Morgantown to take on West Virginia. The match is scheduled for noon.
