Girls Volleyball

7th grade volleyball:  On Saturday they made the long trip to Chippewa Hills to take on Lakeview and Tri-County.  They faced Lakeview first and won 21-6, 21-11 and fell in the final set in a close one 19-21.  In their final match of the day they played a close match against Tri-County.  In the first set they started out a little slow, but ended up winning 21-16.  In the second set too many missed serves and communication errors caused them to fall behind and they lost the set 16-21.  In the third and deciding set they fought hard and had many great volleys, but couldn't quite finish with the win and lost a close one 19-21.  Serving leaders on the day were Kaila Krueger with 22 points and 17 aces, Taryn Preston with 21 points and 12 aces and Samara Kolehouse with 14 points and 8 aces.  They are really starting to understand the game of volleyball and working on setting the ball up more and more each week.  Great job ladies!!

8th grade volleyball:  The 8th grade team traveled to Lakeview on Thursday night.  They had a bit of a tough time and ended up losing both matches, but they are determined to work and get better.

On Saturday the 8th grade team faced off with Lakeview in their first match of the day and started out strong winning the first set 21-15.  In the next two sets they lost some of their momentum and lost 17-21 and lost a tough one in the third and deciding set 23-25.  They began the next match against Tri-County very slow, losing the first set 15-21.  They gained some momentum and played more as a team in the next two sets and came out on top 21-15 and 21-12.  We look forward to seeing both teams show their improvements next week.  Good luck ladies!!

Reminder 7th & 8th grade practice 3:00-5:00 today in the middle school gym!
