The Pioneers opened the 2010 volleyball season against Pattonville, and sent the message early that they were focused and ready to take care of business. It's well known that Kirkwood has some tremendous talent, but often great teams are the ones that can focus and play at a high level at all times. If tonight was any indication, this should be a fun year for Pioneer volleyball fans. There was great defense, tough serving, and no shortage of enthusiasm. The Pioneers travel to Parkway South tomorrow, and then are back home for a big match against the Lafayette Lancers. You owe it to yourself to come watch these girls play. This ain't your momma's volleyball!
