Crivitz Claims M&O Title with Win Over STAA

Issue Date: October 11, 2017

Tuesday evening the Crivitz Wolverines traveled to Marinette to take on the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers with a chance to win sole possession of the M&O Conference title. After a slow start in game one, the Wolverines found their stride, en route to a 3-0 sweep by scores of 25-12, 25-12 and 25-9.

STAA's Millie Benson got the Cavaliers off to a hot start on senior night. Benson's tough jump serves gave the Cavs a 5-0 lead. Crivitz's Taylor Kaldenberg recorded a tip kill to bring them back within 8-5, and the Wolverines found their stride. Morgan Gyger, Chloe Gruszynski and Emalee Johnsen all found the floor on the STAA side with kills to go up 9-8. Benson evened the score again with a hard shot for the Cavs and a 9-9 score, but a 7-0 run by the Wolverines proved to be too much to come back from. Following the 7-0 run, Crivitz put together another 9-3 run to end game one with a 25-12 score.

The Wolverines continued their hot streak into game two with precise serving from Kaldenberg and Annabelle Kosmecki to a 6-2 advantage. After a hit out of bounds, Cavalier Beth Paul brought STAA to within three, 7-4. Johnsen answered back for Crivitz with a laser spike and a 10-6 lead. Livia Benson once again brought the Cavaliers within striking distance with a well-placed bump to the back-left corner of the Wolverine defense. A tip kill from Crivitz got them the momentum they needed. The Wolverines reeled off a 4-0 for a 15-8 lead, stopped only by STAA's Benson with an accurate tip kill. Crivitz finished game two with a 10-4 run thanks to solid net attacks from Gruszynski and Gyger, on their way to a 25-12 win.

Game three looked to be a barn-burner as the teams struck back-and-forth. Gruszynski perfectly placed a tip kill just over STAA's Alexa Pristelski to tie the game at 4-4. Crivitz used the momentum for a 6-4 lead, but Benson again found a soft-spot in the defense to narrow the gap to 6-5. From there, it was all Crivitz. A 15-0 run put the final game away as the Wolverines opened a 21-5 lead. Gruszynski drilled the final point for Crivitz with a piercing spike to the back line and a 25-9 Wolverine win.

Gruszynski finished with five kills on the night, to go along with four digs and a block for Crivitz. Bemis led the team with 10 assists, Abby Barley paced the defense with 12 digs and added five aces.

STAA was led by Millie Benson with five aces, five kills, five assists and seven digs. Beth Paul pitched in with an ace, a kill and a dig, while Halle Beranek finished with five digs and two assists.
