R-P Volleyball extracts revenge

On September 9, R-P and FC met for a 3-Rivers volleyball contest. The Falcons beat the Trojans 25-18, 25-21, and 25-16. R-P is better than that loss. FC is darn good. All that made the LeRoy-Ostrander Tournament, where both schools were participants, intriguing. Could the teams (play to form and) find a way to meet (in the title game)? FC had no problems, vanquishing there four pool play opponents, PEM (25-12, 25-10), the host Cardinals (25-15, 25-11), Riceville, Iowa (25-8, 25-2), and Glenville-Emmons (25-3, 25-7), in sweat-less fashion.

Things were quite so perspiration-less for the Trojans. They opened the day dropping set #1 to Blooming Prairie 20-25, only to rally to win set #2 (25-16) and the match (scored more total points). R-P treaded through Alden-Conger (25-14, 25-23). They beat Hope Lutheran (27-25, 25-18), but only after trailing 24-25 in game #1 (with reserves playing) to the non-powerhouse Patriots. R-P then beat Grand Meadow (25-20, 25-17) to win their pool.

And thus the Trojans got what they wanted, a re-match with the Falcons. There, their intensity picked up. R-P scored the first three points and led most of the early going of set #1. FC held a brief advantage, but R-P then went on a 5-0 spurt. They wouldn’t trail again (won 25-20). The Trojans kept it up in set #2 (best of three series), again jumping out 3-0. FC, dominant throughout the course of the day, was pressed by the Trojans spirited/competitive play. R-P was just motivated/focused. After a couple early ties, the Trojans took a 12-6 lead with a 7-0 spurt. They didn’t look back enroot to a 25-15 win. They got revenge. They avenged themselves. They were crowned L-O Tournament champions. In the title match, Amy Todd (11 kills, 3.5 blocks, 10 digs), Emily Wade (11 assists, 4 kills), and Sierra McNamer (2 kills, 3.5 blocks) came up big. Taylor Case (7 kills) and Morgan Malley (15 assists) led the way for FC. The Falcons are 6-1 (3-Rivers), 17-3 (overall), tied for 2nd with AA #7 Caledonia (6-1, 13-4) behind A #1 W-K (6-0, 20-0). Chatfield (5-2, 12-7) is 4th. R-P (3-3, 18-8) is tied for 5th with St. Charles (3-3, 7-9).

Caledonia is the number one ranked football team in Class AA, the two time defending state champions. They’ve won 18 straight. Any squad that wants the biggest test, needs only to look to the week in which the Warriors are the opponents. Week #5 of 2012 was it .....

By Paul Trende The volleyball term “kill,” broken down, is a consonant followed by a vowel, and then the same consonant twice. It’s only a coincidence the last name Todd is the same way. In R-P volleyball circles this season (especially), th .....

A heated affair

It was hot outside during the day. It was sultry in the gym at night. It was only fitting the Chatfield/Rushford-Peterson volleyball match was a heated affair. In the 3-Rivers conference opener, everyone got lathered up (spectators included). Amy To .....
