It's been some trying times of late for former Muskie Chelsea Kabatay and the rest of the Rainy River Community College Voyageurs women's volleyball team.
The Voyageurs lost a tough five-set battle to the host Hibbing CC Cardinals last Wednesday night to drop their fifth-straight match.
The set scores were 25-13, 17-25, 19-25, 25-23, and 4-15.
RRCC now has a 6-13 record overall while being just 2-6 within its own conference.
Kabatay had a whopping 25 kills while also registering nine digs in losing cause last Wednesday.
The Voyageurs were slated to play host Oak Hills on Monday night but the outcome was not posted to the team's website as of press time.
RRCC next will be in action tonight when they host Vermilion CC at 6:30 p.m.
Then they'll welcome the Itasca CC Vikings on Monday for another 6:30 p.m. start.

It was a week of mixed results for Cole Tymkin and the rest of the OHL's London Knights.
The Knights (3-2-0-0) were blanked 2-0 by the host Windsor Spitfires on Thursday night before rebounding with a 4-1 win over the Owen Sound Attack at home the following night.
Tymkin, a Rainy River native, assisted on the Knights' third goal of the game in third period against the Attack to give him five points in as many games this season.
The Knights next are in action this weekend, when they are slated to play a trio of games.
London kicks things off when they host the Sarnia Sting on Friday at 6:30 p.m. (CDT) before facing the host Attack on Saturday night.
Then they'll cap the weekend set in Guelph on Sunday afternoon when they battle the Storm.
