The Lady Wildcats hosted the Paxton Tigers on Oct. 5, beating them in three sets, 25-12, 25-15 and 25-23.
Coach Elizabeth Hock said it was a great team effort. “Our bench players came in and played well. The girls were able to carry over and display the skills we worked on in practice this week,” she said.
Leading service aces was Emma Schanou with 20. Quinn Koop, Hailey Brooks and Emma Berry each had five kills. Natalie Marquardt had five digs.
The annual Pink Out was held during the game, and over $750 was raised for Memories For Kids. Memories For Kids is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create lifelong memories for children who have a parent with stage IV cancer.
The team played in a triangular on Monday, Oct. 8. They lost to Garden County in two close sets, 20-25 and 21-25. Coach Hock said it was a good effort by the girls, but they got complacent at some point. “We are working on competing consistently throughout each match.”
Sydney Pelster led service aces with nine. Marquardt and Berry each had four kills.
Wallace won their game against Potter-Dix, 25-22 and 25-21. Hock said they played aggressively throughout the match. “We have to learn how to continue competing even when we are in the lead. Our net play tonight was once again much improved over the earlier parts of the season.”
Pelster again led service aces with 15. Koop led kills with six and digs with five.
The ladies will host Wauneta-Palisade this Friday. RPAC will be Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 15-16.
The cross country team competed at RPAC in Southern Valley on Thursday, Oct. 4. Results were unavailable. Districts will be Thursday in Bridgeport.
