Home Teams Dominate M&O Triangulars

Lena Sweeps Home Triangular

It was a tale of two tapes for the Lena Wildcats Tuesday evening at their home triangular. First, taking on the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers, the Wildcats earned a clean sweep, winning in three straight sets. It was then Coleman's turn to take the court as they faced off with STAA. In similar fashion, Coleman also earned a sweep over the Cavaliers, 25-15, 25-10 and 25-6. The final match of the night saw Lena and Coleman face off. The Cougars came out strong, taking the first two sets, 25-22 and 25-20. With their backs against the wall, the Wildcats played their best volleyball of the night, completing a reverse sweep of the Cougars, winning the next three sets 25-19, 25-22 and 15-9.

"Lately, we've been struggling with serves and confidence. Tonight, they had the confidence, these wins were big for them because I think this is what they needed so they can finish the season strong." Lena coach Heidi Place added, "When they start playing as a team, they do great things. Their net play, I haven't even seen it better. This is the team I know they can be and this is the team that I've seen before."

On the night, Coleman's Annabelle Kotecki led the team with 17 kills. Beth Gannigan finished with 14 assists while Abigail Marquardt added 10. Kailey Klimek's defense at the net led her to six blocks, while Kotecki added four.

"They read the plays and did very well, they did everything they were supposed to do," Coleman coach Christine Nowak said of their match against STAA. "Even the first two games against Lena, and the third one wasn't bad either but then something shifted. They got tired."

STAA was paced by Millie Benson with eight kills, Alexa Pristelski added six and Kianna Bulin finished with five. Livia Benson led the Cavs in digs with 14 while older sister Millie Benson was close behind with 13. Bulin led the team in assists with 13.





Rangers Terrific In Home Triangular

The Wausaukee Ranger volleyball squad played hard Tuesday night as they went 2-0 against visiting Suring and Gillett.

Wausaukee defeated Gillett in the first match over five sets 25-18, 25-21, 23-25, 22-25 and 15-4. Wausaukee also defeated Suring 25-22, 25-18 and 25-15.

The Suring Eagles battled Gillett for a win taking the match in five sets 25-16, 25-17, 25-27, 18-25 and 15-10.

Wausaukee's lead hitter this season thus far, Courtney Messar, went wild at the net piling up a whopping 35 kills along with 31 digs, six aces and two assists. Bella Manske was also spot on as she amassed 22 kills, two digs and an assist. Kaelyn Schlies brought the hammer down from the edge with 21 kills as well as getting nine digs.

Suring's Nikki Niemann posted 17 kills on the night. She also got five aces, five kills and 45 digs. Wylee VanBellinger chipped in 16 kills, two aces, one block and 50 digs while Arianna Sepulveda added 10 kills, three blocks, five digs and one assist.

Gillett was led by Willow Pecha with 29 kills, 22 digs, four aces and one assist. Faith Sorlie posted 17 kills, one ace, one block, 10 digs and three assists. Sophia Horsens gave her Tigers 25 assists while also posting six kills, three aces, four blocks and 33 digs.





Wausaukee Staves Off STAA

The Wausaukee Ranger volleyball squad took a four set win over the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers Thursday night. Wausaukee took the first two sets 25-6 and 25-16 before STAA returned fire with a 25-21 victory. Wausaukee iced any comeback attempt with a 25-14 closing set.

Leading Wausaukee in the kill column was none other than the Rangers deadly middle hitter Courtney Messar. Messar amassed 11 kills, nine digs and four aces while teammate Kylee Smith worked the edge for seven kills, two digs and one ace. Callie Orlando set her teammates up with 25 assists and six digs while also getting one kill and an ace.

STAA was led by Millie Benson with seven kills, five digs, four aces and eight assists. Kiana Bulin got four kills and eight assists while Hallie Beranek added nine digs.



Goodman/Pembine Pummels Phelps

The Goodman-Pembine Patriots routed the Phelps Knights Thursday night 25-18, 25-10 and 25-23.

Rachel Braaten and Katelyn Nelson again controlled the net and led the way with Braaten recording 5 aces, 6 kills and 3 blocks as Nelson adding another 5 kills and solid defensive play.

 "I thought the girls played very well and we corrected some of the issues that have hurt us recently. The first two and a half sets were solid and then the second half of the third set we kind of took a step backward and the same old struggles," said Patriot head coach John Swick. "I was so happy we battled through the tough times and finished strong to get the conference win. Our setters Kirstyn Gardner and Madie McLain did a great job of moving the ball around and making the high percentage sets. Masy McLain, Heather Geib and Brandi Bousley all turned in solid performances tonight."



Crivitz Begins Conference Run-Away

The Crivitz Wolverines showed that they are this years front runners in the M&O with a three set defeat of second place Niagara 25-14, 25-10 and 25-11.

The match up which was expected to be a battle quickly divulged into a slaughter as the Wolverines let loose their cannons at the net.

Crivitz was led by Morgan Gyger with six kills, five digs, four aces and two blocks. Chloe Gruszynski posted five kills and four digs while Taylor Kaldenberg got three kills, 13 assists and one ace.

"Tonight we came out timid. My team that played last Tuesday was not present tonight," said Badger head coach Carol St. Arnauld. "It's hard when we play with so much fight and hustle one night to play exactly opposite two nights later. This team has so much potential. We need to play consistently from one game to another. Our serving and passing has improved, now we need to finish at the net. We have another chance at Crivitz next Tuesday, so we need to regroup and play up to our potential."

Niagara's Jessica Oratch lead the effort with five kills. She also had one assist and five digs. Teammate Jasmine Racine chipped in one ace, three kills, five assists and five digs.



Cougars Strike Like Lightening Over Thunderhawks

The Coleman Cougars were quick to end their Thursday night volleyball match with the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks as they took a three set win 25-16, 25-21 and 25-17.

Coleman was led by Brooklyn Seals who helped to seal the deal with nine digs, eight kills, and one ace. Annabelle Kotecki registered six kills, 11 digs, one assist and one ace. Abigail Marquardt posted five digs, five aces and eight assists.

Oneida Nation stats were not reported.



Vikings Cascade Marines in Sweep

Thursday evening the Marinette Marines hosted the Denmark Vikings in a North Eastern Conference volleyball match. Early and often the Vikings made their presence known, winning the match in three straight sets, 25-11, 25-9, and 25-11.

Maddie Mielke and Morgan Lauber paced the Marines with four kills a piece, while Ciara Grawey pitched in with three. Athena Cross led the defense with nine digs while Grawey, Brookelyn Peterson and Katie Craver each recorded four. Peterson had 12 assists, most on the team.



Peshtigo Clips Sturgeon Bay

A Packerland Conference volleyball battle took place Thursday as the Peshtigo Bulldogs traveled to Sturgeon Bay to take on the Clippers. The teams battled back and forth as the Clippers won games 1 and 3 while Peshtigo claimed games 2 and 4. In a final, decisive game five, the Bulldogs gained all the momentum, winning 15-6 to win 3 games to 2.

Bulldog freshman Grace Wickman served up seven aces while also slamming 11 kills and five blocks, all of which led the team. Shae Tonn tied Wickman in kills with 11, and paced Peshtigo in digs with 22. Danielle Lemke set up hitters all night for 30 assists. The win puts the Bulldogs at 3-1 in conference play.



Rebels Handle Patriots in Three

The Goodman-Pembine Patriots took on the Laona-Wabeno Rebels in a Northern Lakes volleyball match. Laona-Wabeno took care of the Patriots in three straight sets, by scores of 25-20, 25-21 and 25-12.

Rachel Braaten recorded six kills and eight blocks for the Patriots, Katelyn Nelson had four kills and Mackenna Hirte added three kills and two blocks.

Goodman-Pembine coach John Swick said of the match, "A difficult passing night made it hard to stay in system and run our offense. Unforced errors were an issue especially after we had built leads early in the first two sets." Swick added, "We have some tough matches ahead to finish the regular season so we'll need to focus on a few areas of our game to finish strong."



Truckers Roll to Sweep Over Marines

Tuesday, the Marinette Marines traveled to Clintonville to take on the Truckers in a contest of two North Eastern Conference squads. Clintonville defended their home court, winning the contest in three straight sets, 25-16, 25-18 and 25-13.

Maddie Mielke, Katie Craver and Emma Erickson led the Marines with five kills each. Erickson also paced the team in digs with 10, Ciara Grawey added nine and Craver and Lily Pomplin each had seven. Brookelyn Peterson's 18 assists were the tops on Marinette.



Peshtigo Swept by Southern Door

Tuesday evening the Peshtigo Bulldogs played host to the Southern Door Eagles in a Packerland Conference matchup. Although the Bulldogs played the Eagles tough in every game, Southern Door swept the contest 25-21, 25-19, and 25-23.

Grace Wickman led Peshtigo in kills with seven, Madi Martin added five and Shae Tonn finished with four. Danielle Lemke recorded 19 assists to lead the team, while Gabby Perry paced the defense with 18 digs and Tonn and Wickman each added 13.



Tough Showing For Badgers in Crivitz

The Crivitz Wolverines hosted the Niagara Badgers and the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks Tuesday night in a volleyball tri-angular. The scores for the Crivitz vs Oneida match were not submitted. In the second matchup, Oneida swept Niagara by scores of 25-16, 25-20 and 25-18. For the final match of the evening, the Wolverines took down the Badgers in four sets, 25-17, 25-15, 18-25 and 25-22.

"My team started out inconsistent tonight against Oneida and really couldn't find their game. Oneida played well as they beat us in three and pushed Crivitz to five games. Oneida is scrappy and consistent." Niagara coach Carol St. Arnauld added, "We started playing more of what my girls are capable of against Crivitz. It was a much better showing than it was last Thursday. We need to play more consistently and with more confidence. My girls have shown us the type of ball they are capable of playing, they just need to play up to their potential all the time."

On the evening, Jasmine Racine led the Badger net attack with 15 kills, Cassie Gill added 13 and Allison Wells finished with 11. Abigail McCarthy set up hitters to lead the team with 23 assists. Defensively, Faith Borchardt paced the Badgers with 32 digs, McCarthy added 16 while Racine and Wells each recorded 13.

Chloe Gruszynski led the Wolverines on the night with 26 kills, while also adding nine digs, three blocks and an assist. Emalee Johnsen pitched in with 18 kills, while Taylor Kaldenberg led the way with 33 assists. Abby Barley paced Crivitz's defense with 20 digs.
