LADY WILDCATS VOLLEYBALL SEASON ENDS WITH 2 LOSSES
The Lady Wildcats’ Volleyball 2012 season came to end last Monday, October 22, with a 2 games to 0 loss (25-16 and 25-18) to Centralia in the Missouri District 6 Tournament at Hallsville. The Thursday before that (October 18), their regular season came to an end with a 2 games to 0 loss (25-20 and 26-24) at Wright City.
In the first game of the Wright City match the score was tied at 8-8 after the first five service turns for each team. On its sixth service turn Wright City scored 3 points to take an 11-9 lead, a lead that WC did not relinquish. R-2 would only score 3 points on its next nine service turns. Wright City didn’t do much better, 5 points on eight service turns, but it was enough for WC to come away with a 25-20 win.
The second game was much different, as both teams had much more success on several of their service turns. R-2 took a 2-1 lead on its first service turn, but Wright City scored 3 points on its first service turn to take a 4-3 lead. R-2 tied the game at 5-5 on its next service turn (Sophie Teeter serving), and then scored 6 points on its third service turn (Anna Ash serving) to take a 12-6 lead.
Two service turns later Wright City scored 8 points to retake the lead at 15-14. However, with the match tied at 16-16, the Lady Wildcats scored 4 points on its sixth service turn (Mariana Marihno serving) to take a 20-17 lead. Unfortunately the Lady Wildcats would not score another point on their last four service turns, while Wright City scored 1 point on three of its next four service turns to get within 1 point of R-2 at 23-22. The game was tied twice at 23-23 and 24-24 before Wright City scored 2 points on its last service turn to win the game 26-24 and the match 2 games to 0.
Individual stats for the Lady Wildcats in this match were not available.
Just like the second game of the Wright City match, the Lady Wildcats jumped out to an early lead in the first game of the District 6 Tournament match against Centralia. The Lady Wildcats scored 2 points on its second service turn (Teeter serving) and 3 points on its third service turn (Ash serving) to take a 7-3 lead. However, Centralia scored 7 points on its next service turn to take a 10-8 lead and never looked back. Centralia outscored the Lady Wildcats 15-8 the rest of the game to win 25-16.
The score of the second game was a little closer, but the Lady Wildcats fell behind early and could never catch up. The Lady Wildcats scored only 1 point on its first five service turns, while Centralia scored at least 1 point on three of its first five service turns to take an 11-6 lead. On its eighth service turn Centralia scored 6 points to take a 19-10 lead. From that point the Lady Wildcats outscored Centralia 8-5 to close the score to 23-18. However, Centralia scored 2 points on its last service turn to win the game 25-18 and the match 2 games to 0.
The individual stats for the Lady Wildcats in this match were as follows:
Service Aces – Ash 3.
Kills/Spikes At The Net – Sierra Kolan, Hope Fry, and Tori Van Doren 2 each; and Emily Johnson, Victoria Weitkamp and Ash 1 each.
Assists – Ash 7.
Blocks At Net – Kolan 1 solo block.
Digs – Justice Kobusch 12; Van Doren and Marihno 9 each; Ash and Teeter 7 each; Kolan 3; and Weitkamp 2.
Centralia went on to defeat Orchard Farm 2 games to 1 in the tournament semifinal match, but lost 2 games to 0 to Lutheran (St. Peters) in the District Championship game. Lutheran moved on to play Whitfield (District 5 champion) in the State Playoffs Sectional match, which was played this past Saturday, October 27 at Fatima High School in Westphalia.
The Lady Wildcats’ 2012 record ended at 6 wins and 21 losses. Although this record is not as good as the Lady Wildcats hoped for, it was an improvement over their 2011 record of 1 win and 19 losses. With only two Seniors graduating (Kobusch and Fry), the Lady Wildcats are hoping for even more success in 2013.
Congratulations to the Lady Wildcats on your hard work and effort and the success you did have this season.
