Bulldogs Serve Up Sweeps Over Marines and Maroons

Tuesday evening the Menominee Maroons hosted a tri-cities triangular against the Peshtigo Bulldogs and Marinette Marines. Peshtigo dominated both of their matches against the Maroons and followed up taking command of their matches with the Marines. Menominee then narrowly avoided being swept by the Marines, and completed the comeback by winning games two and three.

Peshtigo coach Robin Gilligan highlighted her team's work in the offseason on serving. Tuesday night, the work paid off as the Bulldogs continuously served to spots in the defense, causing poor passes, which led to free plays for Peshtigo's offense.

"I would say that is one of the highlights of tonight's matches, our serving." Coach Gilligan added, "The girls were really working on placing their serves. I think that was the difference in the games."

In complete control from start to finish, the Bulldogs cruised to a sweep over Menominee by scores of 25-12 and 25-9. Danielle Lemke paced Peshtigo with six aces and seven assists. Gabby Perry showed her defensive prowess with 13 digs, while freshman Grace Wickman led at the net with four kills.

Match number two featured the two visiting teams in Peshtigo and Marinette. After trailing early in game one, Peshtigo once again went on a run, spearheaded by pinpoint serving. The Bulldogs took game one 25-10 over the Marines, before having to make a run in game two. Down 18-15, Peshtigo outscored Marinette 10-3 and won the game 25-21, finishing off a complete sweep on the day. Emma Frederickson's three aces were tops on the Bulldog squad, while Shae Tonn smashed four kills and recorded six digs. Lemke once again led in assists with eight.

"The hitters are really working on that. They're working hard in practice to mix it up. I'm constantly preaching not to hit it the same way." Gilligan also said of the Bulldogs' volleyball IQ, "They're really good at knowing where to go, me not even telling them. That comes with years of training with Shae [Tonn], Madi [Martin] and Emma [Frederickson]."

For the final match of the night, it was an M&M showdown with Marinette and Menominee facing off. After falling 17-25 in game one, Menominee avoided a sweep. Down 15-20 in game two, the Maroons rallied to comeback and narrowly win 25-23. In the third and deciding match, both teams battled back-and-forth. Menominee used the momentum from game two, to edge Marinette in game three and take the match, by a final game score of 25-21.

"Our girls started talking and moving really well. They were covering well and decided they really wanted to play well, and really wanted to win that game," said Menominee coach Sarah Betzinger. "It's awesome, the girls are really excited. They understand they can do it, I knew they could do it, but now they understand too."

Menominee's Hannah Ries piled up six kills in their two matches, while also adding two blocks and an ace. Emma Hofer recorded 11 digs and two kills, while Brianne Burnette added nine blocks, three kills and two aces.

For Marinette, Brookelyn Peterson was the key setter with six assists, adding five kills as well. Madelyn Mielke was the beneficiary of those sets, as she smacked six kills and pitched in five blocks. Ciara Grawey recorded five kills and served two aces.

Rangers Cage Tigers in Four Set Victory

The Wausaukee Rangers took a four set win over the visiting Gillett Tigers Tuesday night 25-23, 25-23, 25-15 while Gillett won one set 25-21.

For the Rangers Courtney Messar was a one woman wrecking crew as she blasted out 17 kills, 21 digs and one assist. Many of Messar's kills came from flawless assist off the finger tips of Callie Orlando who finished the evening with 28 assists and three digs. Kaelyn Schlies amassed six kills and six digs while Bella Manske knocked down six kills.

Gillett's Willow Pecha got nine kills, one ace and 15 digs while Megan Wolfe piled up five aces, 15 assists, two kills, three blocks and two digs.

Goodman-Pembine Wins Over Coleman Faith Christian

The G/P Patriots came away with a four set win over Coleman Faith Christian 25-10, 25-20, 25-27 and 25-12.

Patriots head Coach John Swick commented, "Overall we played pretty well tonight. At times we played at the speed we needed to run our offense and occasionally we got a little off track. The thirst did a great job of battling a scrappy team that kept bringing it back. Our front row did a great job controlling the net and attacking overpassed balls."

For the Patriots Rachel Braaten led the way with 27 kills and eight aces while Katelyn Nelson got 12 kills. Made McLain piled up 18 assists while Kirsten Gardner got 14 assists and seven kills.

Lena Edged Oneida in Five Games

The Lena Wildcats traveled to take on the Oneida Nation Thunderhawks Tuesday evening in a matchup of M&O volleyball squads. After dropping game one 25-15, the Wildcats took control of game two and won 25-14. Oneida stormed back for a 25-14, but Lena avoided a loss with a 27-25 win in game four. For the final, decisive game of the match, Lena secured a 15-9 win.

"The girls played hard tonight and really played tough against some great servers and hitters." Lena coach Heidi Place added, "We struggled the first game with serves, but gained confidence as the games went on and got the job done."

Ally Demmith led the Wildcats with six aces and four block kills, while adding three spike kills and two digs. Brianna Sylvester paced the offense with four spike kills and Makayla Bushmaker recorded nine assists.

No Oneida Nation Thunderhawk stats were reported.

Gillett Takes Five-Game Win Over Bonduel

Taking part in a nonconference matchup, the Gillett Tigers battled with the Bonduel Bears Thursday evening. The Tigers took the first game 25-20, but lost the next two 14-25 and 23-25. Needing to win the next two games to win the match, Gillett did exactly that, taking game four 25-22 and sneaking by the Bears in game five 15-13.

Megan Wolfe led the Gillett defense with 25 digs, while Faith Sorlie added 18 and Willow Pecha pitched in with 17. Wolfe also paced the attack with seven aces and 18 assists. Pecha, Camryn Long and Sophia Horsens each recorded seven kills that paced the Tigers.

Niagara Nets Win Over STAA

Tuesday, the Niagara Badgers took on the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy Cavaliers in an M&O matchup. Niagara won the first two games 25-15 and 25-12, before STAA avoided a sweep with a 26-24 victory. The Badgers completed the win with a 25-13 game four win.

Allison Well piled up 10 kills for the Badgers to lead the team, while Abigail McCarthy added seven and Jasmine Racine pitched in five. McCarthy also set up her Badger hitters, on her way to 18 assists. Wells' nine digs led Niagara while Annalise Colenso pitched in seven.

STAA's Millie Benson recorded a solid all-around day with six assists, five aces and four kills. Kianna Bulin logged four assists, three kills and two aces. Halle Beranek also had a solid performance with four digs, three aces, three kills and a block.

Crivitz Crushes Coleman in Sweep

The M&O saw a conference match between the host, Coleman Cougars, and the visiting Crivitz Wolverines Tuesday night. Crivitz took all three games played, by scores of 25-10, 25-17 and 25-14.

Wolverine Emalee Johnsen racked up nine kills and Chloe Gruszynski slammed seven. Taylor Kaldenberg set up 12 assists for the Wolverines, while Taylor Bemis pitched in seven and Saige Nelsen added five. Abby Barley, Allison Zorn and Annabelle Kosmecki each posted two digs.

Coleman's Annabelle Kotecki led the team with three kills and seven digs. Abigail Marquardt and Beth Gannigan each had four assists.
