Badgers Bounce Wolverines 3-0

The Niagara Badgers took a solid 3-0 win over the hosting Crivitz Wolverines Thursday night, setting down the Wolverines by way of a 25-9, 25-16 and 25-22 set readout.

"Maddy Welty had to come up to varsity tonight," said Crivitz head coach Molly Meyers. "As a freshman she has not seen a varsity floor all summer and this season, she really stepped up this game." 

The Wolverine effort was led by Maddy Welty who secured three kills, three digs and three blocks. Teammate Brooke McFadden posted three kills, five digs and one ace while Riley Mueller added up three kills two digs. Hailee Gyger did her part with one ace and 13 assists.

"I'm obviously not to happy about those first two games," said Meyers. "We changed things up in the third and we saw an improvement. The girls didn't give up though and I'm very proud of the way they played. Niagara is an amazing team. They have some of the best hitters in the conference. They are very well coached and disciplined."

In JV action the Wolverines lost the first set 25-21 but came back to win to in a row 25-19 and 25-19.

"Crivitz is always a competitive team and there were some great rallies tonight," said Niagara head coach Carol St. Arnauld. "My team dominated the first two sets but let our guard down in the third set, and Crivitz made a game of it. However, we were able to win in three sets."

Alyssa Cretton led the way for the Badgers with 12 kills, one block, one assist, six digs and three aces. Bailey Pearson posted eight kills, one block and 10 digs while Morgan Borcherdt added up 17 assists, four digs, five kills and four aces.

"From the starters to the bench, every single one of my girls played outstanding," said St. Arnauld. "This was a big win for my team, and now they can celebrate the homecoming festivities. We need to continue to play at our level of play and not the level of our opponents. I feel good about what this team has accomplished thus far."
