Nine-Straight Propels Canes

In the SEC, a lot of teams are jostling for position behind M-C. Foes Lanesboro (3-1, 3-1) and Houston (2-2, 4-2) fall into that category. Game one of their match-up saw the Burros lead early (10-5) and Houston lead later (19-15). Lanesboro rallied to down 21-20 and 24-23, but Houston took the game 25-23. The teams then exchanged uncompetitive sets. The Burros jumped out 10-4 and evened the match at 1-1 with a 25-11 win. Houston jumped out 18-6 enroot to a 25-10 win and a 2-1 lead. Game four saw the Burros go 6-0 to build a 10-2. Houston hung around, getting as close as 18-17. Kelsey O’Koren’s 5-1 serving session moved a 19-17 Burro lead to match point (24-18). Hurricane senior Erica Langen then served eight consecutive points. Bailey Scanlan, a 5’3” OH, had just three kills on the night, but all three were in the final game, two over the final four points. The last ended the game (26-24) and the match (3-1), as the ‘Canes snatched victory from nowhere with 9-straight points. Senior setter Alexa Horihan headed the Hurricane’s landfall (22 assists, 3 kills, 7 digs, 20-21 serving, 4 aces). Kelly Jerviss had 12 kills. Kenzie Ness (8 kills, 17-17 serving), Langen (10 digs), and the Scanlan’s, Brandy (17 digs) and Bailey (3 kills, 9 digs) also were busy. Olivia Haug (11 kills), Rachel Kimball (9 kills), Alexis Jorgensen (6 kills), Lexi Melander (29 assists, 7 digs, 16-17 serving, 3 aces), Olivia Rogers (5 kills, 7 digs) and Cassidy Ruud (8 digs, 15-15 serving) did work amidst an 11-gal Burro attack. It was their fourth four-plus set SEC contest (2-2).

Trojans End Draught Versus Warriors…

When was the last time a Rushford-Peterson Trojans volleyball team beat Caledonia? None of R-P’s current players remember. They weren’t born yet. Nineteen-ninety four was the year. It was 32 regular season and tournament matches ago! The up-and-down Trojans were up in downing Caledonia 3-1 in four hotly (22-25, 25-23, 28-26, 25-22) contested games, ending a massive losing streak. Sophomore Brianna Koop led the way with 15 kills and 10 digs. Senior Bailey Holien added 12 kills and 8 digs. Savannah Skalet (32 assists, 19-19 serving, 3 aces) and Mikayla Crawford (13 digs, 15-15 serving, 2 aces) also aided the Green cause.
