By Jerry Wadian

West Central won its fifth volleyball match of the season Thursday, Oct. 10, in Monona, beating the Bulldogs in three straight, 25-23, 25-13, and 25-22.

Earlier in the week, the Devils lost at home to Ed-Co, 19-25, 10-25, and 22-25.

Thursday’s win over MFL/MM was a team effort. WC had 21 kills, five blocks, and went 71-74 serving with 22 aces.

The Devils had to withstand several Bulldog runs in game one, dominated the second game, and hung in there to take the match with some tough play late in game three.

Emilie Wolfe led the effort at the net with six kills and two blocks; she also had five digs and went 16-18 serving with a team-high nine aces.

Jenni Hollinrake had all 16 Blue Devil assists; she also had three digs and went 11-12 serving with three aces.

Tess Kuennen added four kills, a block and was a perfect 16-16 serving with four aces.

Individual Blue Devil Results

Barry- 3 kills, 2 blocks, 5-5 with 3 aces. Grimm- 2 kills, 3 digs, 10-10 with an ace. Hollinrake- 16 assists, 3 digs, 11-12 with 3 aces. Kuennen- 4 kills, 3 digs, 1 block, 16-16 with four aces. Meyer- 1 kill. Ruff- 3 digs, 13-13 with 2 aces. Wolfe- 6 kills, 5 digs, 2 blocks, 16-18 with 9 aces.

 

Ed-Co was too strong at the net and too quick on defense for West Central Tuesday, Oct. 8, in Maynard. The Vikings had 37 kills, including two girls in double digits, and made 60 digs in the three-game set.

WC had just 13 total kills and 15 digs. The Devils did continue their good serving record, going 51-56 with six aces.

Madee Grimm led the Devils with five kills and three blocks; she also went 10-11 serving with a pair of aces. Hollinrake added nine more assists to her season’s total and led the Blue Devils with five blocks.
