Suring Takes Two

in Niagara Invite


The Suring Eagle volleyball squad took two wins on the court of the St. Thomas Aquinas Cavaliers last Thursday, defeating STAA 25-9 and 25-18 and Niagara 25-21, 14-25 and 15-11. Niagara beat STAA in two sets.

"Tonight we started off well and played more consistent than we did against STAA last Tuesday," said Niagara Coach Carol St. Arnauld. "Our serves were on point and communication was better. We have a strong front line, so when our passes are on, we can be tough to beat."

St.Arnauld went on to describe how she felt about the one game loss to Suring, "After beating STAA in two, we played Suring. My girls had some missed serves and lacked communication in game one but it was still a tight game, ending 21-25. Game two we dominated and were able to capitalize at the net, only to break down in game three and let a team we truly should have beat take the win. Suring played with a lot of heart and hustle and ultimately that's how they won the game. We need to learn from this and keep playing aggressive and finish games."

Niagara was led by Cassie Gill with 10 kills, three blocks, one assist, 12 digs and one ace. Jasmine Racine got eight kills, three assists, 10 digs and three aces while Allison Wells put up nine kills, one block, two assists and three aces. Abigail McCarthy set up her team with 31 assists while also getting four digs, five kills and five aces.

For the Cavaliers Millie Benson had 10 kills, six aces and five assists. Kiana Bulin got three kills, two aces and five assists.

Suring's Nikki Niemann led with 10 kills and four aces. Arianna Sepulveda got seven kills while Jazmine Chesterfield added six kills and four aces. Jadyn Stuart and Jayden Bubolz split the setting duties with 16 assists each.



Goodman/Pembine

Suffers Two Losses


The Goodman/Pembine Patriots had a tough night when facing the Brandon Cardinals and the Elcho Hornets as they fell to the Cardinals 25-16, 21-25, 14-25 and 25-27 afterwhich they suffered a three set loss to the Hornets 25-16, 25-23 and 26-24.

"We played a solid first set and then couldn't get out of our own way after that," said Patriot head coach John Swick. "Crandon really stepped it up and did a great job placing their hits. I think we learned a lot about who we are and what we need to do.

"I was proud of how we kept fighting to stay in each set after some mental breakdowns kept hitting us. This is a feisty bunch and they play with a lot of enthusiasm."

Game one saw Rachel Braaten lead the way for the Patriots with 16 kills and eight blocks. Katelyn Nelson added 10 kills while Mackenna Hurts chipped in nine kills. Kirsten Gardner led the way in the assists column with 20.

Swick went on to talk about what he saw over the second match with the Hornets, "we struggled with our defensive shift quite a bit and Elcho did a great job hitting angles all night. We gave up a few leads throughout the match and that has hurt us so far this season. My girls played some solid volleyball those final two sets and we can definitely build on tonight."

Game two's effort was led by Braaten with another 15 kills and eight blocks. Nelson gave her Patriots five more kills and seven blocks.

Niagara Goes the

Distance With Wausaukee


The Niagara Badgers hosted the Wausaukee Rangers Tuesday night for an M&O conference match up that saw these two teams go five sets before a winner was decided. Wausaukee took the first set 25-16 while Niagara took the second set 25-23. The Rangers came back in the third 25-12 but a determined Badger squad came away with the final two sets 26-24 and 15-12.

"What a game tonight!," siad Carol St. Arnauld. "My girls lost to Wausaukee on our season opener, so they wanted this redemption and it showed. They played with so much heart and hustle that it was hard not to get caught up in the emotion of it all. Although, tonight was not without errors as we lost game 1 and 3 to Wausaukee. We had a good lead in game 4 and Wausaukee came right back but, my team persevered and finished strong. Going into game 5, my team was ready and it was a nail biter."

Tonight's win truly showed how exciting this game really can be. When you can go 5 games against a good team and finish with the win, it's a great night. My team needs to continue to pass and serve well along with being strong at the net. They do these things and we will be successful

Cassie Gill led the Badger net attack with 12 kills, 11 digs, two blocks and two assists. Abigail McCarthy tallied up eight kills, five digs, two aces and 26 assists. Jasmine Racine got eight kills, six digs and two assists.

In the rubber match, Coleman regained their momentum, going on to win 15-7, to take the match three games to two.

Patriots Sweep Lakers,

Swept by Blue Jays


The Goodman-Pembine Patriots came away with a split after taking on the White Lake Lakers and the Three Lakes Blue Jays. In their first contest, the Patriots took three straight games against White Lake by scores of 25-18, 25-13, and 25-18. Rachel Braaten tallied nine kills in the contest while Katelyn Nelson added four.

"The girls came out with a lot of energy and really gelled as a team." Patriot coach John Swick added, "We had a tough serving night tonight, which forced us to be on the defensive too much. It was a much needed, first conference win of the season and I think we're coming together as a team."

In their second conference match, the Patriots took on the Blue Jays of Three Lakes. It was tough sledding for the Patriots as the Blue Jays won all three games, 25-23, 25-15 and 25-20. Rachel Braaten again led Goodman-Pembine with nine aces and eight kills. Katelyn Nelson pitched in with seven kills and Kirstyn Garder pitched in with six aces.

"This match was a great test for us. Three Lakes is a tough team that seems to bring every ball back, regardless of where it is hit." Coach Swick went on to say, "Our serving again was an issue, but I was really proud of how we kept a scrappy attitude all night. They exposed some areas we need to sure up. This is a great group of girls so I'm anxious to get back in the gym and get to work."
