OHS senior Karissa Wilcoxson (13) prepares to play the volleyball along with teammate Mallary Simmer (8) up front and Megan Robertson (2) in the back row after Mount Pleasant's Brianne Holtkamp kept the ball alive on the other side of the net Thursday night during the Bulldog volleyball team's first home match of 2013. Despite nearly taking a two-game lead in the match, OHS could not pull out a home-opening win as Mount Pleasant rallied for a four-game win 18-25, 27-25, 25-14 and 25-13 at Evans Middle School Gymnasium in Ottumwa. The Panthers (12-3) will return to Evans Gym to participate along with the Bulldogs (2-9) in Saturday's Ottumwa Volleyball Invitational.
