Polk State Volleyball's Winning Streak Continues with Victory Over Palm Beach

Polk State Volleyball is riding high heading into tonight's matches against South Florida Community College and Indian River State College following a significant victory Thursday night over Palm Beach State.


The Eagles defeated perennial state powerhouse Palm Beach in three straight games Thursday night, 25-19, 27-25 and 25-18.


Freshman Rosmerli Carillo was the standout player of the night, posting 19 kills, securing Player of the Game honors.


Also shining on the court were sophomore Rachel Aguilar with 35 assists; sophomore Diannmarie Rivera-Romero with three kills and 14 digs; sophomores Ileanushka Maldonado and Grace Vega, each with 12 digs; and sophomore Stephanie Harris with nine kills and two blocks.


Interim Head Coach German Del Valle said he was proud of what the girls demonstrated on the court, especially because it was against a team that is typically among the strongest in the state.


"We stepped up our game. There was more togetherness and we're gelling more," he said.


The Eagles take on South Florida Community College and Indian River tonight during the Indian River Tournament Fort Pierce.


"I think if we bring the same energy as last night, we're the team to beat," Del Valle said.
