Volleyball: Streator falls to ICE foe Coal City in 2 at The Pops

Bulldog Spikers drop 8th straight; Coalers improve to 1 match over .500

“When we stay in our game and we are the aggressor, that’s when we play well and we do well. Sometimes during a match, if an opponent scores a point or two on us, we forget (about staying aggressive) too quickly. I just think it’s a mental block right now.”

I worked for 25 years as a CNC operator and in 2005 answered an ad in The Times for a freelance sports writer position. I became a full-time sports writer/columnist for The Times in February of 2016. I enjoy researching high school athletics history, and in my spare time like to do the same, but also play video games and watch Twitch.
