Zeutzius Nets 27 Kills In 3-1 Win Over Peshtigo

They are back in the lead!

Sparked by a great individual performance from senior spiker Ashlie Zeutzius, the defending M-O champion Wausaukee Rangers (12-2) regained their “crown status” by taking care of Peshtigo (11-3) in a four game match Tuesday.

The Rangers, who graduated quite a few seniors from last year’s title team, did not disappoint their backers in a key clash with the up and coming Bulldogs. Owning a game lead heading into the final conference clash, coach Tom Pleyte's crew needs to win both games at their home triangular to clinch the conference title for the second straight year and the 3rd time in four years.

Peshtigo, which shows plenty of promise with a lineup featuring mostly underclassmen, had a hard time containing the M-O’s best outside hitter in both league losses to the Rangers. The Bulldogs will travel to the Crivitz triangular to face the Wolverines and Gillett for their final conference games of the season.

For the rest of the M-O Conference, Crivitz served as the upset specialist Tuesday, with a surprising 3-1 victory over Gillett. With the win Crivitz improves to 6-8 while the Tigers dropped to 9-5. Gillett will get a shot at redemption on Thursday as they load the buses for Crivitz. The final contest of the night saw STAA beat Lena in the battle of the bottom teams.

A look at the upcoming schedule has Coleman and STAA being entertained by Suring, Lena and Niagara head to Wausaukee while Gillett and Peshtigo travel to Crivitz.

Thursday will be final round of play in the M-O with the WIAA regionals beginning on Tuesday, October 18.





-Tuesday’s Results-

Wausaukee Improves To

12-2, Gains M-O Lead

With Win Over Peshtigo


After blowing the opening game of the season and sitting behind Peshtigo for a good portion of the league play, Wausaukee has finally made its way back to the top of the M-O loop. The Rangers hold a game lead over Peshtigo, after winning 25-20, 25-12, 21-25 and 25-13.

“Wausaukee did it to us again and we even changed our lineup a bit to be stronger on defense. The change seemed to help us come out and play with more enthusiasm than we usually do in the first game,” explained Peshtigo coach Lynn Kostreva. “I don’t think the change helped us like we thought it would because Zeutzius, their big hitter, figured it out and had no trouble putting the ball where we weren’t.”

Speaking of the best player in the conference, Zeutzius burned the Bulldogs for an unbelievable 27 kills, including 23 spikes and 4 blocks. Sara Wickman balanced the Rangers highly touted attack with 17 kills and an ace, Kaylor DeLaet 26 assists, Stevie Oldenburg 5 kills, 4 assists and 2 aces and Charleen Fick 2 aces, 2 kills and 2 assists.

Shannen Ganter paced the second place Bulldogs with 6 kills, 6 digs, 10 assists and an ace, Hannah Romenesko chipped in with 6 kills and 6 aces, Taylor Romenesko 7 kills and 6 digs, Allie Morris 7 assists, and Paige Immel 7 kills and 2 digs.

Both the jayvee and freshman squad for Peshtigo swept their contests.





Niagara Claims Tight

Victory From Coleman


Niagara captured a hard earned M-O victory by beating Coleman 31-29, 25-21, 16-25 and 25-20.

Niagara coach Carol St. Arnauld watched her group of Badgers improve each game this year as their record jumped to .500 in the conference.

Maryellen Wagener had another stellar performance with 22 kills and 10 digs, Corrina Shampo posted 6 kills, 7 digs and 15 assists, Paige Lindlbauer 16 digs, Danielle Bennett 15 assists, and Kaitlyn Lundin 7 kills and 6 digs.

Makenzie Sadowski topped the Cougars with 14 kills, Lindsey Kerr added 14 assists, Abby Bieber 11digs and Sam Schaal 4 aces.

Niagara claimed two out of three jayvee games, 25-20, 25-14 and 27-29.





Crivitz Hands Gillett

5th M-O Setback


The Wolverines, playing the upset role, handed Gillett its 5th conference loss in a 3-1 victory. Gillett claimed the first game 25-23 before Crivitz netted the final three 25-19, 25-22 and 25-20.

Kathryn DeJung sparked Gillett with 5 kills, 12 assists, 3 digs and an ace, Missy Peterson 5 aces, Amanda Kohls 10 kills and 2 aces, Kelsey Hischke 17 digs and Mel Meunier 9 assists and 2 aces.

Talented Rachel Tandias led the Cavalettes with 8 kills, 18 digs and 1 aces. Emily Hogoboom added 4 kills, 11 digs and 3 aces, Kelly Brofka 8 assists and Kristin Sorenson 7 assists.

Peshtigo Bounces Back

From First Game Loss,

Cruises To 3-1 Victory


After suffering a first game 25-17 setback, Peshtigo found its groove and ripped off three straight wins during pink-out, breast cancer awareness and senior night. The Bulldogs posted winning scores of 25-17, 25-22 and 25-17.

“Once again, we started out struggling, but after the first game things started to turn around for us. We were covering a lot of floor and communicating much better in the final three games,” commented Peshtigo coach Lynn Kostreva.

The juniors drove the Bulldog wagon as Shannen Ganter netted 13 kills, 2 aces, 7 digs and 11 assists. Taylor Romenesko chipped in with 11 kills, 9 digs and an ace, Jen Harris 3 aces, Abbi Frederickson 9 kills and senior Sara Courtois 5 aces and 5 digs.

Wausaukee senior Ashlie Zeutzius was unbelievable at the net with 26 kills while adding 2 aces. Fellow hitter, Sara Wickman cleaned up for 16 kills, Kaylor DeLaet 34 assists, and Crystal Clark 4 aces.
