M&O Volleyball

Eagles Hand Bulldogs First M&O Loss in Over a Seasond

Eagles drop Bulldogs

from M&O Perch


In a battle of two M&O unbeaten teams, the Peshtigo Bulldogs traveled to Suring Tuesday night to take on the Eagles. Each team entered the match with 3-0 records, but only one would remain undefeated.

Suring defended their home court in game number one and won the set 25-17. In game two, Peshtigo tried to even the score but the Eagles put the set away by a score of 25-20. With all of the momentum, Suring dominated game three 25-14 to take the match in a sweep, 3-0. The Eagles advance to 4-0, becoming the only unbeaten team remaining in the conference, giving them sole possession of first place.

"We knew we were going to have a tough match," said Suring Head Coach Tonia Kruschke. "Our focus was on communication as a team and being fundamentally sound. The girls were cohesive and played as a team. Katie Stegeman led in stats but it was truly a group effort to win each point. Our goal as a team is one match at a time. Both teams had solid defensive games that kept rallies going."

Katie Stegeman shined at the net for the Eagles as she notched a game-high 13 kills to go along with two blocks. Greta Sleeter's 14 assists led Suring while Cortney Heimerl pitched in with eight. The Suring defense was on display as four players had 14 or more digs including Heimerl with 16, Nikki Niemann and Wylee VanBellinger with 15 each and Sleeter with 14. Suring's serving was highlighted by Faith Buhrandt's four aces.

Ashley Dudka set up Bulldog hitters all night with 18 assists. Claire Neumann paced the Peshtigo attack with eight kills, Emma Frederickson added six and Shae Tonn logged five. Megan Behnke's eight digs led the Bulldog defense.

"Suring definitely earned it! Katie Stegeman had an outstanding game for them." Peshtigo Coach Robin Gilligan added, "Our serve receive was the highlight of the match. Our passing was spot on and also our setting from Ashley Dudka. However, we couldn't put the ball down when we needed to. When you have twenty attack errors it's hard to win a match."

Cougars Clash

with Tigers


An upset-minded Gillett Tigers team entered the Coleman Gymnasium ready to play.  Gillett took game one Thursday night and tried to use that momentum, but Coleman seemed to have other plans.

In set number one, the back-and-forth battle was up for grabs.  Both teams used scoring runs to take and retake the lead.  Coleman took the early advantage as Ashlee Mayer began her big day with the first kill of the night.  Mayer's ace gave the Cougars a quick 5-1 lead.  Gillett would come back as they went on a nine to three scoring run to take a 10-8 advantage after Sarah Nauke's kill.  Mayer's block kill followed by a spike kill brought Coleman back within one, until Faith Sorlie's back-to-back kills followed by two aces in a row from Erin Balthazor gave Gillett a 15-10 advantage.  A serve error gave Gillett a 25-21 victory to take the first set.

"We needed to move better, we had nerves going out there and we just really needed to find our rhythm," said Cougar Coach Kim Henry.

Set two began the same way with each team scoring hand-in-hand.  Coleman's Beth Gannigan and Kersten Gibson combined for a block kill, Gibson then sent a spike cross-court for the kill giving the Cougars an early 7-6 lead.  Several consecutive key errors allowed Gillett to go on a five-point run and take an 8-12 lead.  Gillett's Faith Sorlie made a diving dig that saved a point and sent the ball over the net and into the corner of the Cougar defense for a big Tiger point.  With much of the momentum going Gillett's way, Coleman needed a boost.  That's when Beth Gannigan took over the game for the Cougars with clutch serving.  Gannigan served nine consecutive times including three aces and three kills from her teammates.  Coleman took a 21-15 lead in a flash.  The Tigers tried to come back as they scored four straight points bringing the score to 23-21 in favor of Coleman, but the Cougars scored two of the next three points to win set two 25-22 tying the match at one game each.

From there, it seemed to be the Cougars' time to shine.  Especially their leader in the middle, Ashlee Mayer.  Mayer notched four of her team-high ten kills in set number three to go along with two of her three aces.  Annabelle Kotecki and Mariana Meissner also recorded two kills each helping Coleman to a 25-18 win. 

"This was actually a new lineup tonight so I am proud of the way they played.  We have been trying to find what clicks and this seemed to work," said Coach Henry.

In the final set, Coleman cruised out to a 15-5 lead.  The Tigers did what they could to come back in the match making it a close 25-23 game, but to no avail as the Cougars won the match 3-1.  Mayer and Gannigan led Coleman in aces with three each.  Four Cougar players recorded 18 digs or more including Mayer leading the way with 29 and Kotecki with 20.  Clara Yoap's ten assists paved the way for hitters as Mayer had ten kills and Kotecki added seven.

"The girls look to her as our number one hitter so we count on her to be that.  Our previous game she struggled a bit, so this game was key for her confidence," Coach Henry said of Mayer.

Gillett's Megan Wolfe, Willow Pecha and Victoria Loberger each had six kills to lead the team.  Wolfe also added a team-high 15 assists and 10 digs to cap off her big night.  Sorlie pitched in with seven digs while Myranda Pratsch added six. 

"A giant we have been trying to conquer is our consistency.  I've been telling the girls we need to look for small victories so this game was actually a huge victory in the whole aspect of consistency," stated Coach Henry after the victory.
