It’s a small step. For a program that won 11 total matches the past two seasons combined, staying on the plus side of .500 is a sign things are going in the right direction. Lanesboro volleyball heads to October with more “W’s” than the last two seasons combined. The rising young squad posted two wins on the week. One was a big one. By taking down Spring Grove 3-0 (25-18, 26-24, 25-17), the Burros ended a 10 match losing streak to the Lions. SG (16-6) had won 26 consecutive sets in the series. The tri-pronged attack of lefty junior right-hitter Sydney Taylor (16 kills, 14 digs, 21-22 serving), frosh 6’0” middles Kaci Ruen (11 kills, 18 digs) and Jessie Schreiber (9 kills), led the attack. Sophomore Ella Cambern racked up 35 assists. Payton Benson (21 digs) and Malia Tessum (20 digs) did back-line work. Two nights later, Julie Schreiber’s girls dispatched with Leroy-Ostrander 3-0 (25-17, 25-15, 25-13). Taylor (14 kills, 3 aces), Ruen (10 kills), Schreiber (8 kills, 15-16 serving, 5 aces), and Cambern (33 assists) led the way. The Burros (7-3, 13-12) have teetered around .500 all year. They’ve won three straight.
