Wausaukee Ontop of M&O With Strong Week

Gibraltar Takes down

Peshtigo in Packerland Matchup


Gibraltar took down Peshtigo in four sets on Thursday, Sept. 13.

Gibraltar took the first set 25-19 and the second set 25-18, but Peshtigo bounced back with a 25-22 third set, looking like it would take the momentum.

"They just started talking amongst themselves to say "hey, we can do this.' They were staying positive. A couple of the upperclassmen spoke up to say "girls, we're not out of this, we've just got to play three games now,' so they were confident coming out," Peshtigo coach Robin Gilligan said. "It carried over to the fourth a little bit but then we just started making mistakes."

Gibraltar recovered for a 25-21 fourth and final set.

Gilligan pointed to the team's hitting percentage as one area that will need improvement going into the remainder of the season.

"You can't win games when you're at eight percent kill percentage," she said. "We only put down eight percent of our swings. That's not going to win games. I know we're a young team making young mistakes and I told the girls that we've got to stay positive and still keep fighting and it'll come together."

Grace Wickman and Brenna Schoenebeck each had eight kills for the Bulldogs, while Mackenzie Morris had 19 assists and Grace Oestrich had 13. Wickman led the team with 19 digs and Gabby Perry tallied 15. Morris, Lianna Baxter and Allison Dudka had aces.

At this stage in the season, the team is playing together, with some players saying that the team chemistry is as good as any team they've been on, according to Gilligan.

"This team has worked really well together," Gilligan said. "The younger kids are feeling accepted, the older kids are accepting them and making them feel as part of the team and that's a very positive thing we have going for us. It's just now, can we just fix our mistakes?"

Peshtigo Drops Five Set Match to Algoma

The Peshtigo Bulldog Volleyball squad dropped a five set match with host Algoma Tuesday night falling by way of 19-25, 25-21, 25-8, 24--26 and 3-15.

Leading the way for the Bulldogs during the match was Grace Wickman who amassed six kills, eight digs and two assists. Allison Dudka registered seven kills, four blocks, one asist, three digs and four aces while Kennedy Chmela posted nine kills, one block and one dig.

Badgers beat Cougars in Five Games

The Niagara Badgers prevailed against the Coleman Cougars in five games in an M&O Conference matchup that will not be forgotten soon. Momentum seemed to shift between teams during each set, as Coleman took the first and fourth games (25-21, 25-15) and Niagara won the second and third games (25-12, 25-10).

"We started the night out sluggish." said Badger coach Carol St. Arnold. "We came alive in the second and third games but then in game four, we became timid at the net and struggled with our serving. This team definitely likes to add some excitement to the court which was evident in our battle during game five."

During game five, the Cougars were up on the Badgers 13-10, when a critical rotation error by Coleman took points off the board and gave the Badgers the ball with the score tied 11-11. "It was a sign from God," said Coach St. Arnold. "When they were up 13-10 and they had the wrong server and it became 11-11, it was just enough to ignite our team, I told them it was time to go out there and finish it."

When asked about her team's performance, Cougar Coach Ashley Broderick had nothing bad to say, "I thought our communication and coverage on the floor tonight was great, this was the best they played all season. It's tough to lose this way, but I think we will continue to improve."

The Badgers we're led by Jasmine Racine, who had 11 kills, 9 assists, and 13 digs. Alyssa Cretton posted 11 kills and 18 digs, and Julia Brown racked up 25 assists and 11 digs.

Wausaukee Sends Lena Spinning in Three

The Wausaukee Ranger volleyball team bagged a nice three set win over the hosting Lena Wildcats Thursday night, defeating the home court girls 25-12, 25-21 and 25-15.

For the Rangers Courteny Messar got 11 kills, 16 digs, one assist and two aces while Kylee Smith posted 12 kills, 10 digs, two assists and one ace. Callie Orlando finished the evening with 21 assists, seven digs and four aces.

Lena was led by Meckenna Portier with four kills, one block and four digs. Lilia Shallow got two kills while Jordan Dolata registered four aces and two digs.

Suring Posts Win Over Gillett

The Suring Eagles took a solid home court win Thursday night when they took down the Gillett Tigers in three sets 25-17, 25-20 and 25-19.

Leading the Eagles was Wylee VanBellinger with seven kills and an ace. Stephanie Huth and Arianna Sepulveda both got three kills.

Lena Secures Win Over Coleman

The Lena Wildcats bagged a four set win over the Coleman Cougars Tuesday night 19-25, 25-22, 25-19 and 25-18.

Leading the Coleman girls was Kailey Klimek with five kills, two blocks, one dig and two aces. Maria Nowak got four kills, six digs and two aces while Michaela Zeitler posted four kills and three digs.

For the Wildcats Alyana Peterson posted five kills and three digs. Morgan Cruz got nine digs and two aces.

STAA Has Tough Day at Triangular

STAA Drops Two in Home Triangular

The St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers hosted a triangular volleyball match up Tuesday night and were handed two loses, one from Stockbridge, the other from NEW Christian.

On the day the Cavvies were led by Pristelski and Bulin both piled up 11 kills each while Bulin got 23 assists.

Niagara Falls to Suring

The Niagara Badgers hosted the Suring Eagles Tuesday night and were handed a five set loss, 25-11, 19-25, 13-25, 25-23 and 8-15.

The winning effort by the Eagles was keyed by great performances by a number of Eagles.

"My team came out and played string," said Niagara Head Coach carol St. Arnuld. "Then we went into the next few games and completely lost focus. We fought back in game four only to let Suring come back in game five and take the win. Bottom line is Suring out hurled us tonight. We were timid at the net and inconsistent with our sets."

The Badgers were led by Jasmine Racine with 12 kills, seven assists, 10 digs and one ace. Alyssa Cretton posted seven kills, 10 digs and two aces while Julia Brown tacked on 21 assists along with her nine digs and one kill.

Wausaukee Takes Win Over Oneida

The Wausaukee Ranger volleyball team took three set win over the visiting Oneida Nation Thunderhawks Tuesday night, 25-23, 25-18 and 25-23.
