There was a bit of intrigue to the big FC/W-K volleyball match. Days earlier, Fillmore Central (10-4) was the #1 seed in W-K’s tourney, but fell in the first round. Falcons-North (9-1), surprisingly won the event. Falcons-South (let’s call them the B&B squad) extracted a bit of revenge and posted another very good TRC win. FC fought off W-K for the 3-1 win (25-23, 25-22, 22-25, 25-22). Kaelyn Marzolf was the best Falcon weapon (game-high 19 kills, .366 hitting). The Falcons had three with double digit kills, a first this year. Paige Donlinger (10 kills, 16 digs, 28-29 serving, 4 aces) and Charity Daniels (career-high 12 kills) also did so. Madison Scheevel (43 assists, 22 digs), Cailey Rindels (6 kills, 31 digs), and Kjerstiana Corson (19 kills) made it a good group effort. FC stays atop the TRC (6-0, 11-4) with Caledonia (6-0, 12-4) ahead of St. Charles (4-1, 6-4).
