IMS travels to Washington for the Demon Invitational Saturday morning at 9 a.m. Sometimes, it's the smallest things that turn a volleyball match around. Wednesday night at Tipton, it was a "small" thing that turned the match from a Mid-Prairie win to a Tipton victory in five games. Bob Barrick's Golden Hawks lought Tipton Ioolh and nail for four games and finally subsided to the Tigers with a 15-8 fifth game loss. The loss dropped M-P to 3-4 in conference play and 4-14-2 overall. The week ahead got no easier lbr the Hawks as Tuesday, they hosted E1HC leader Mount Vernon and Saturday, they are at the always grueling Washington Demon Invitational. As lot Wednesday, Banick noted his team was pleased with their effort but "unhappy with the loss." "We played very hard," Banick said. "We just couldn't quite get over the hump- in the last game. We were very pleased with our play but obviously unhappy with the outcome." Tipton came out smoking early as the Tigers took 15-4 and 15-6 wins to take a quick 2-0 lead. However, the Hawks moved back into the match with 15-4 and 15-11 wins. According to Barrick, Jenny Slabach's play was a key in those wins. "She made it hard on Tipton with her constant aces down the line on kills," Barrick said. "It took awhile for them to adjust to that part of our offense." In the final game, a line-up change by the Tigers constituted the "small" problem for the Hawks. "They just made some line-up changes in the front trouble," Barrick some missed ball which helped them out, some breaks in that laStg M-P wat three straight stre; in a row while one point at a time in "It was a long last could never said.
