Coleman Netters Stand Alone

Thanks to a pair of wins over Suring and Crivitz, the Coleman Cougars sit atop the M-O net standings with a 4-0 readout. Coleman held off pesky Suring in 5 games Thursday before registering a sweep over Crivitz Tuesday.

Three teams share the runner-up spot as Lena, Niagara and Peshtigo sport 3-1 readouts. Wausaukee evened off its volleyball mark at 2-2 with a sweep over Crivitz and STAA.

League play continues Thursday, September 6 with triangulars at Crivitz, Suring and Coleman while dual meets are slated for Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Wausaukee’s Strengths

Key Sweep Of Crivitz
Crivitz was competitive for most of its match against M&O rival Wausaukee Thursday in conference net action.

But unfortunately for the Wolverines, the home team was apparently wasting no time letting opponents know that lack of size won’t be keeping them from competing this season as the Rangers sent Crivitz home by way of a 25-21, 25-17, 25-15 sweep.

“We’re very small this year,” says Wausaukee head coach Tom Pleyte. “But we’re coming along. We’ll just try to take advantage of whatever we can. Keep the ball alive, keep hitting and try to make it so we’re doing the hitting as opposed to the other team doing the hitting at us.”

After a close first game that saw the two teams separated by only four points when the dust settled, the second game was another back and forth struggle midway through as well with Wausaukee holding a slim 12-11 advantage. After the Rangers went up 16-11, the Wolverines put together a string of nice points to get to within two at 19-17.

Then cropped up a phenomenon that would prove to be the undoing of the Crivitz team as they all but handed the opposition seven straight points to close the game out, five of the seven coming by way of unforced errors.

The Rangers hit their stride in the third game as they began to run the Wolverines all over the court. They were serving the ball with velocity as well as accuracy and forcing Crivitz into more frustrating mishits and ill-placed shots.

A 6-1 Rangers’ lead didn’t need long to turn into a 12-3 advantage as the visiting team looked to be overwhelmed by the fast-moving Wausaukee squad. Their shots sailed long and their players struggled to get into position to return strikes.

But the Wolverines clawed their way back into the third frame. As if a switch had been thrown, Crivitz responded and cut the Rangers’ lead to four at 12-8, largely thanks to powerful serves from Kelsey Fickler, who finished Thursday with two aces, and heads up play from Star Batten, who also had a pair of service aces to go along with nine total kills. Jen Kempka chipped in three digs and 15 assists.

The Rangers were just too much though. Crivitz got as close as 13-11 but the home team quickly regrouped, thanks to heavy hitting at the net from the likes of Sara Wickman, four aces and 15 kills, and Stevie Oldenburg, who finished with 12 kills and an assist. Wausaukee corrected its early-game miscues and jumped back out to a 17-13 advantage before overpowering Crivitz with more error-inducing shots and closing it out with a healthy 10-point margin at 25-15.

“I’m pleased because we’re getting a lot of mileage out of what is not a real big team,” said Pleyte. “I would imagine that the difference for us in tonight’s match was our experience. We were a little better at keeping the ball alive than they were tonight.”

Also contributing for Wausaukee were Kaylor Delaet with four kills and an ace to go along with her match-leading 18 assists and Crysta Clark with two kills, three assists and an ace.

Bulldogs Firing On

All Cylinders In

Sweep Of Niagara


Peshtigo got 100% serving efforts from three of its players in a convincing three-game sweep over host Niagara 25-16, 25-20, 25-19.

“Our serving was much better tonight,” says Peshtigo head coach Lynn Kostreva. “We wanted Niagara to earn their points and not much got past us.”

Taylor Romenesko found fair territory on all 15 of her serves while notching four aces to go along with 10 kills and 10 digs. Shannen Ganter had a pair of aces on 10-for-10 serving as well as 12 kills and nice digs. Hannah Romenesko was 17-for-17 at the service line with an ace in addition to her six kills and 18 digs.

Leading the way for Niagara were Kaitlyn Lundin with 12 kills, Abbey Bagnieschi 11 assists as well as a dig and a kill and Maryellen Wagener 10 kills.

“I’m very pleased with how we played,” Kostreva said. “Our transition was great, they covered the floor really well. Also, our communication keeps getting better and better.”

Lena Survives 2nd Game

Scare To Defeat STAA


After dispatching the visiting Cavalettes convincingly in the first game of Thursday's match 25-13, the Lena Wildcats stuttered a bit for a narrow 25-23 win in the second before returning to form and closing things out in the third on a 25-14 effort.

Setting the pace for the winning Wildcats were Elizabeth Salter with four kills and three aces to go along with 16 assists, Holly Blazek with 10 kills, 11 assists and a dig and Kayla VanLanen with 11 kills, an assist, a dig and an ace. Christina Jagiello added five kills, two assists and three aces.

The Cavalettes were led by Molly Linczeski’s 14 digs while teammate Kristin Sorenson chipped in eight digs, two assists and a service ace.

Coleman Holds Off

Suring In 5 Games


After taking the first two games of Thursday’s conference clash against the Eagles 25-21 and 25-18, Coleman looked to be on its way to an easy night to start the season. But Suring battled back and edged the Coleman group 25-23 and 25-20 in games three and four before losing the match 15-5 in the fifth and deciding frame.

Leading the way for the Cougars were Makenzie Sadowski with 16 kills and five aces, Lindsey Kerr with 11 assists and five aces and Abby Bieber with 16 digs.

For Suring, Calley VanBellinger had six kills and six aces, Stormy Gerndt had a pair of blocks and Erin Fisher notched 17 digs.

Coleman Takes Care

Of Crivitz In Sweep


A balanced attack carried Coleman to a 25-16, 25-14 and 25-13 sweep of Crivitz.

Sammy Schaal and Brook Pashek tallied 5 aces each, Ashley Teteak 8 digs, Lindsey Kerr 5 assists while Raena Chucka and Makenzie Sadowski added 2 block kills each.

Star Batten topped Crivitz with 5 kills, Miranda Beaudry 4 spikes and 3 aces, Vikki Neumann 3 spikes, Jen Kempka 8 assists and 2 digs while Brittany Gorman tallied 2 spikes, one tip and an ace.

Peshtigo Hands Lena

First Volleyball Loss


Protecting their homecourt, the Bulldogs never gave Lena a chance in registering a 25-16, 25-11 and 25-10 sweep to improve to 3-1.

“We continue to improve in our transition game. The girls showed a lot of effort and hustle in digging up the shanked balls to get it over on that third hit,” coach Lynn Kostreva said. “We continue to show improvements in all areas.”

Taylor Romenesko tallied 12 kills, 5 digs and was 12-12 on serves, Allie Morris 16 assists, Shannen Ganter 7 kills and 6 digs, Hannah Romenesko 8 digs, 3 spike kills and 18-19 on serves while Nicole Motkowski chipped in with 10 assists, 19-20 serves and 3 aces.

In suffering their first M-O loss, the Wildcats were paced by Liz Salter and Holly Blazek with 14 assists, Kayla VanLanen and Megan Rouer 10 digs, Melissa Bushmaker 9 kills and 9 digs while Vanessa Hanrahan added 8 kills and 7 digs.

Niagara Holds Off Gillett

Now 3-1 In M-O Circuit


After dropping the first two games by identical scores of 25-21, Niagara stormed back to win the final three 25-17, 25-23 and 15-11.

Maryellen Wagener paced the winners with 18 kills, including 12 spikes while adding 2 digs and an assist. Kaitlyn Lundin chipped in with 13 spikes and 2 blocks, Abbey Bagnieschi 16 assists, Shanna Nordell 4 spikes, Shelby Borchardt 3 spikes and 5 digs, Danielle Bennett added 5 digs and 3 spikes.
