Louise Lion and Jada Smith dive for a ball during a recent home match. The Panthers fell in five sets to Southwestern Community College on Wednesday.

The regular season is winding down for Ellsworth Community College with just three conference matches left. The Panthers are still searching for that first Iowa Community College Athletic Conference win in order to get in the top eight and make the Region XI Tournament.

Several times ECC has been on the brink of victory, going the distance, with both Northeast and Southwestern. In the end on Wednesday, it was the Spartans that prevailed in the five-set decision.
