Ah Fruech!

Posted in Sports

It's probably what the Chatfield Gophers volleyball team said before, and likely what they said after, playing the Caledonia Warriors in the Sub-Section 1AA finals at Mayo Civic Center. And to say there is a decent sports program located on state road 44 between Spring Grove and Hokah in Houston County is a vast understatement. Olmsted/Fillmore bisected Chatfield surely has size, talent, and depth, but they don't have the kind of size, depth, and athletically trained (weight room) talent the Warriors do. Maria Fruechte (pronounced Frick-Tee) is case in point number one. Emma Lange is case in point number two. One doesn't have to go much further. The explosive 5'11" Fruechte was the main impetus that led Caledonia to a win in game one versus Chatfield. With the score tied at 12, Fruechte put on a display. She personally triggered a 5-0 Warrior run with block, kill, block, block, and block in succession. The Gopher's would inch the score to 17-18, but get no further. They bowed in the first set 25-22. Set two had Fruechte at it again. She notched six kills (unofficially). Caledonia started 6-1, they let the Goph's close the gap to 8-6, but ultimately cruised to a 2-0 advantage with a 25-15 victory. As is often the case, set three had the team trailing in the match (Chatfield), rallying. They built a 14-11 lead. Caledonia came back and tied the contest at 14. Chatfield built a 20-17 lead. Emma Lange, the Warrior's long and powerful 6'3" junior middle hitter, then jumped to the forefront. Lange registered four kills over the final eight Warrior points. Caledonia ended the set on an 8-2 run. The 25-22 (3-0) victory sent the Warriors to the Section final versus Stewartville. It's the second Caledonia-over-Chatfield result of the season: the Warriors won 3-1 in Chatfield on October 13. From the office of redundancy, it's the fourth straight year Caledonia has topped Chatfield in the play-offs (ending their season). Fruechte finished with 13 kills and 7 blocks (unofficially). Lange etched 12 kills and 4 blocks into the record book (unofficially). Both had equal or more spikes then Chatfield's top two attackers combined, Kenna Moechnig (7 kills unofficially) and Bailey Hilgren (5 kills unofficially). Oddly, Chatfield's most sure-fire way of amassing points was when Caledonia's offerings went awry (the Warrior's had 18 attack errors). Chatfield's up-and-down season ends a respectable (given the youth on the squad) 18-12.
