Purse Top Honors With 4-2 Mark

For the second straight year, coach Tom Pleyte and his Wausaukee Rangers claimed the M-O Conference volleyball crown with a 14-2 record.

“At the beginning of the year we were faced with a lot challenges because we had to replace a number of seniors. The rookies continued to improve each week, especially setter Kaylor DeLaet,” explained Pleyte.

Thanks to a triangular sweep Thursday, coach Pleyte and company captured their 5th title in 10 years and were sparked by the stellar play of senior outside hitter Ashlie Zeutzius, the league’s reigning MVP.

“Ashley is the type of player each school gets every four or five years. She works hard at getting better and was extremely patient with the group of new players,” commented Pleyte, who coached at the University of wisconsin-Milwaukee for 15 years and is in the hall of fame there.

Zeutzius looks like she will be on track for the prestigious award again this year, putting up some unbelievable numbers on the season.

The Rangers clinched the crown with a pair of wins in their home triangular Thursday, sweeping Lena before taking three of four from Niagara.

“Ashley is the leader of this team and she kept us together through the hard times,” Pleyte continued.

Peshtigo locked up second place after splitting at the Crivitz triangular. The Bulldogs beat up on Crivitz with a clean sweep after suffering a frustrating loss to Gillett. The Bulldogs concluded the conference season with a 12-4 record while the Tigers were third at 11-5.

Under first year head coach Caitlin O’Leary, the Coleman Cougars finished in the fourth spot at 10-6 following a pair of sweeps of STAA and Suring. Niagara was 8-8, Crivitz and Suring 6-10 each, STAA 4-12 and Lena 1-15.

Wausaukee Claims Title

With Twin Win In Finale


The Rangers made sure there was no doubt, who the M-O Conference champion was racking up a 2-0 record at their home triangular. Wausaukee swept Lena 25-18, 25-10 and 25-13 before erasing Niagara in a four game match, 24-26, 25-17, 25-14 and 25-18.

Ashlie Zeutzius was a big hit for the Rangers pocketing 5 aces, 31 kills and 2 assists to lead the way. Lauren Edlbeck and Kaylor DeLaet paced the ace department with 8 each while Sara Wickman added 21 kills and 2 aces, DeLaet 37 assists, Edlbeck 16 kills and 4 assists and Kari Jewett 3 aces.

Carley Shavlik posted 13 kills, 18 digs and 5 aces in a losing effort for Lena. Megan Rouer netted 38 assists and 2 aces and Alisha Kocken 25 assists.





Gillett Posts 2-0

Record At Crivitz


Gillett, which has been on upset alert all year long, surprised the Bulldogs for the second time with a 3-1 win.

In the first game, Peshtigo held a 2-0 advantage before Missy Peterson rattled off 22 straight points to key Gillett’s win 25-9, 25-21, 18-25 and 25-18.

Gillett wrapped up the conference season with a 3-1 win over Crivitz 14-25, 25-22, 26-24 and 25-18.

Peterson finished the tri with 11 aces, 7 digs and 5 kills, Kara Brennan 19 kills and 9 aces, Mel Meunier 18 assists and 5 aces, Kathryn DeJung 7 kills, 6 digs, 26 assists and 5 aces, and Kelsey Hischke 41 digs.

The Bulldogs bounced back from their meltdown to take care of Crivitz in three games 25-23, 25-23 and 25-20. Taylor Romenesko turned in an 11 kill, 4 ace and 15 dig performance for Peshtigo. Twin sister Hannah chipped in with 8 aces, 10 kills and 18 digs, and Shannen Ganter 15 kills, 15 digs and 15 assists.

Crivitz, despite going 0-2, were very competitive in all seven matches as Abby Fischer was the top performer with 28 kills, 8 digs and 9 aces. Jen Kempka posted 18 assists and 3 aces, Val Bevier 10 kills, 9 digs and 6 aces and Erin Doolittle 9 kills, 14 digs and 3 aces.





Coleman Clobbers

Makenzie Sadowski paced the Coleman assault with 18 kills, 5 aces and 5 blocks, Lindsey Kerr 29 assists and Emily Fendryk 17 digs.
