Streaking

How tough is sub-section 1A in volleyball? Two teams with double-digit win streaks did battle in the quarterfinals. Six-seed Rushford-Peterson (21-12, 10 straight) visited 3-seed Lewiston-Altura (24-4, 13 straight). Amy Todd was the Trojans' best weapon in game one. She notched five ace serves, but seven R-P attack errors benefited L-A. In the end, Todd took her spot deep with R-P trailing 24-20. The score narrowed to 24-23, but a service error gave the Card's the win. The competitive loss shook R-P. They fell easily 25-16 in game two. It looked like the match woul be anti-dramatic. It looked more so that way when L-A led game three 14-11. But it was nip-and-tuck down the stretch (ties at 21-25). A pair of attack errors on the Cards part ensured R-P wouldn't go home skunked (27-25). That shook L-A. R-P amassed a 16-10 game four lead. The Card's got composed though. Seniors Jenny Mundt and Natalie Kalmes asserted themselves. At one point, the duo accounted for eight straight points. An 18-13 Trojan lead became a 22-18 Cardinal lead. R-P got it to 21-22, but no closer. L-A prevailed 25-22 (3-1). Mundt was the difference (26 kills, 4 blocks, intimidation). L-A also got quality attacking from Brooke Schilling (12 kills) and Kalmes (7 kills), plus 46 assists from setter Maddie Hess. R-P's Kenzie Lind amassed 20 kills; Todd had nine. Kendra Crawford had 20 digs. A successful Trojans 2011 campaign ends at 21-13.

M-C, FC Advance...

Fillmore Central and Mabel-Canton advanced to the Sub-Section 1A East VB semifinals. M-C did so by going through a familiar foe, 7-seed Spring Grove (19-9). In the fourth meeting of the year between the two squads, the Coug's prevailed 3-0, but by two points in each set (26-24, 25-23, 25-23). Meanwhile, the Falcons (#5, 22-6) made a lengthy trip to Goodhue (#4, 18-6). The ride home was probably long too, but good. After dropping game one (22-25), FC ripped off three straight (25-15, 25-22, 25-18). Sophomore Taylor Case was impressive, notching 23 kills and 13 digs.

...Only To Fall in Semi-Finals

Fillmore Central's reward was a semi-final contest with top-seeded, third-ranked, defending state Class A champion Wabasha-Kellogg (22-7). The big game atmosphere was a bit much for the young Falcons-South. They dropped the first two sets 25-18 and 25-16. They rallied in the third though, as Alex Peterson and Taylor Case found more open spots for their kills. After a little extra volleyball, FC won 28-26. W-K the .....
