Peshtigo Posts Tri-City Triangular Wins
The Peshtigo Bulldogs volleyball squad went wild in a Tri-City showdown with the Marines of Marinette and the Maroons Of Menominee.
Peshtigo first took down Marinette 25-16 and 25-12 before slamming the door on Menominee 25-16 and 25-19 to establish themselves as the dominant team in the Marinette/Menominee/Peshtigo area.
"The Ladies made a step in the right direction by eliminating service, hitting and passing errors tonight," said Peshtigo coach Robin Gilligan. "Overall our back row players did an excellent job getting the ball to our setters so they could run a quick offense. Our blockers stepped up and made a lot of touches on the ball to slow them up for our defense. I just want to mention that Wickman, Schoennebeck, Dudka and Baxter all attacked the ball extremely well which gave us a lot of offensive options."
Peshtigo's Grace Wickman recorded nine kills, one dig and three aces while Lianna Baxter chipped in six kills and one assist. Allison Dudka got six kills, one block, one aside and three aces. Brrenna Schoenebeck tacked on seven kills, one block and one ace.
