Collecting a trio of wins this past week, the Coleman Cougars improved their M-O Conference volleyball readout to a “lucky” 13-0 after besting Lena and Gillett in a triangular Thursday before leveling Lena again Tuesday.

Going after their second straight M-O crown, the Cougars have three matches remaining...October 10 hosting Wausaukee, bye on October 15 before heading to Crivitz for a October 17 triangular.

Second place Peshtigo also came up victorious three times and moved to 11-2 in the conference chase. The Bulldogs topped Niagara and Crivitz in a Thursday triangular before taking care of visiting STAA Tuesday in 4 games.



-Thursday’s Results-

The Coleman netters had little trouble defending their home court Thursday as they played host to Lena and Gillett and came away with a pair of victories. Coleman needed only the minimum six games to do so, downing Gillett 25-4, 25-10, 25-18 and then taking care of Lena 25-11, 25-12, 25-16. Gillett defeated Lena 25-13, 25-14, 25-16.

Digs upon digs upon digs.

Between five players, the Peshtigo netters tallied 166 digs Thursday in Niagara as they defeated the Badgers 25-13, 22-25, 25-23, 25-23 and then took down Crivitz in three games 25-14, 25-18, 25-8.

"It was another barn-burner with Niagara," said Peshtigo head coach Lynn Tonn-Kostreva. "We were behind 10-19 in game three before digging deep and pulling out the victory."

Leading the way for the Bulldogs was Teja Tonn, who finished the evening with two aces, 17 kills, four blocks and 23 digs; Nicole Motkowski served up three aces, had eight kills, six blocks, 20 assists and 25 digs; Amy Courtois had 26 digs; Maizie Reif had 42 digs, eight kills and four aces; Taylor Sodini had two aces, seven kills, 24 assists and 13 digs while Carly Dietrich finished with 37 digs, an assist and 11 kills.

And speaking of digs, Shelby Borchardt had the game-high total with 107 digs to her name to go along with eight kills and an assist; Maria Miller turned in 30 assists, four digs and a kill while Brooklyn Wolosyn added 19 kills, a dig and seven assists.

Crivitz was paced by five aces, 25 assists, eight digs and a kill from Jen Kempka while Vikki Neumann chipped in seven kills, eight digs and two aces.

Suring Slips Past

Wausaukee, STAA


It was a big night in Marinette for Suring Thursday as the Eagles came to town and took wins over the host Cavalettes as well as the always-tough Wausaukee Rangers. Suring upended STAA 25-7, 25-7, 25-18 and then slugged it out for five games with Wausaukee, eventually emerging victorious at 23-25, 23-25, 25-22, 25-11, 15-8.

Calley VanBellinger had a big evening for the Eagles as she turned in 29 kills, leading all players on the night, to go along with two aces, a block and eight digs. Kelsey School notched 23 digs, six assists, a block and two kills, Breanna Tienor had seven aces, a kill, 30 assists and 16 digs while teammate Brooke Gauthier had an ace, 10 kills and four digs.

STAA was led by Riley Schultz and her nine kills, nine digs, a block and an assist while Linsey Hannon had a kill, an assist, seven digs and two aces.



-Tuesday’s Results-

Cougar Dominance

Continues In M-O


The Coleman netters aren't getting any easier for other M-O teams to compete with as the season moves along. Coleman exercised further control of the conference Tuesday night, taking care of the visiting Lena Wildcats 25-6, 25-16, 25-8.

Makenzie Sadowski finished the contest with three aces, five kills, three blocks, two assists and a dig for the victorious Cougars; Lindsey Kerr had four aces, two kills, a block, 18 assists and 10 digs to go along with teammate Lily Cornelius' four kills, three blocks and a dig.

Lena was led by Melissa Bushmaker's three kills, one block and an assist.

Bulldogs Go 4 Games

To Bounce Cavalettes


Peshtigo survived a brief scare on their home court Tuesday as STAA came to town and took a game. But the Bulldogs rebounded after dropping the second game of the match and came out on top by a final tally of 25-13, 22-25, 25-16, 25-11.

"The 'second-game curse' gets us way too often," said Peshtigo head coach Lynn Tonn-Kostreva. "Although, I think we may have underestimated STAA's scrappiness! They dug up a lot of nice hits."

Riley Schultz and Linsey Hannon each had nine digs to lead STAA in that category. Hannon added a kill and three aces, Schultz also had seven kills and two blocks.

For the winning Bulldogs, Nicole Motkowski had a pair of aces, six kills, two blocks, 18 assists and 10 digs; Teja Tonn had an ace, five kills, two blocks and seven digs; Maizie Reif had four aces, two kills, an assist and 17 digs while Carly Dietrich turned in nine kills to lead all players as well as 22 digs, also a match high.

“Tournament play starts in two weeks,” added Tonn-Kostreva. “We have a few things to work out.”

Suring Beats

Niagara In Five


In a 25-22, 21-25, 23-25, 25-19, 15-10 thriller Tuesday on Suring's home court, the Eagles outlasted the Badgers for a conference victory.

Tigers Tame Wolverines

The Gillett netters opened Tuesday's match in Crivitz strong, taking two competitive games in a row before dropping two as the Wolverines roared back to life. Gillett did recover and edged the home team 15-13 in the fifth frame for an M-O win.

The winning Tigers were led by Brianna Lemirande's 12 kills, three blocks, nine digs and two aces; Jessica Anderson had four kills, 21 assists, five digs and two aces to go along with Melissa Sherman's four kills, 11 digs and three aces.
