"There are two types of fires. One is the fire that can consume you and burn everything up around you, including yourself, if you are in the middle of it. The other type is a refining fire. This type of fire actually burns the stuff you don't need, and molds and shapes you into sometimes a precious jewel or item."

Head coach Marla Kannady Foreman's Cottey College Comets volleyball team went through both of those types of fires within themselves last week. After suffering nearly every miscue and setback a team can experience in a road loss against Northeast Oklahoma Wednesday, the Comets turned things around on Friday, returning to Hinkhouse Center and earning a strong victory over Labette County Community College in three sets by the final scores of 25-7, 25-21 and 25-20.

Morgan Wheatley and Erica Phillips led the Comets with two aces apiece, while Hannah Wilson recorded 11 assists. Phillips scored 10 kills, while Skyler Ford had a team-high five blocks and Kymee Bair finished with 16 digs.

The Comets were scheduled to be back in action on Monday, heading back out on the road to take on Ozark Christian College, but those results were unavailable at press time.
