Ten in a Row for Burros


Mon, Oct 19th, 2015
Posted in All Sports

By Paul Trende

Their streak has exceeded last year’s win total. Courtesy of another great week, Lanesboro volleyball has now won ten straight matches. Win nine was a signature victory for a program in the midst of a resurrection. In a big match with Rushford-Peterson (16-6), Lanesboro (12-3) performed an improbable comeback. R-P came out powerful in game one. Behind Savannah Skalet (8 assists, 2 blocks, 2 aces) and Brianna Koop (5 kills), the Trojans ended on a 16-5 run for a 25-14 win. Lanesboro’s offense revved up in game two. With it 16-16, the Burros went on a Haley Polin (2 blocks, kill), Rachel Kimball (2 kills), inspired 7-0 run. They evened the match (25-18). R-P re-grouped in game three. Back-to-back Ashley Agrimson free-ball kills were part of a 4-0 Trojan run that put R-P up 15-10. They prevailed 25-19. Each set featured at least four ties (22 total). The sixth tie (18-18) of set four was followed by a critical 3-0 mini-Burro-run. Lanesboro forced a game five with a 25-22 win. In the final set, R-P built leads of 5-1, 11-3, and 13-7. It was over. But Lanesboro kept at it, finding a hot hitting hand in junior Cassidy Ruud. Point-by-point the Burros narrowed the score. Ruud reached down the throat of the loss shark and ripped victory from jaws of certain defeat. She notched five kills over Lanesboro’s final nine points. The Burros ended on an 8-0 run for the amazing comeback victory (15-13)! They prevailed 3-2 (14-25, 25-18, 19-25, 25-22, 15-13). Kimball (15 kills, 18 digs) and Ruud (13 kills, six in the final set, 16 digs) were huge. Lexi Melander had 38 assists, 15 digs, and 2 aces. Joelie Schreiber (7 kills, 3 aces) and Polin (6 ace blocks) helped out. R-P was led by Koop (17 kills, 17 digs), Skalet (3 kills, 30 assists, 11 digs, 2 blocks, 3 aces), Agrimson (11 kills, 4 blocks), and Mikayla Crawford (33 digs, 2 aces). Hitting errors doomed the Trojans. Unofficially, R-P had 32 to Lanesboro’s 20. Lanesboro then took out Houston in straight sets (25-23, 25-18, 25-13) behind Kimball (13 kills, 12 digs, 3 ace blocks), Ruud (8 kills, 16 digs), and Melander (26 assists, 10 digs). The Burros (9-3, 14-3) trail only M-C in the SEC. Houston was led by Kelly Jerviss (9 kills, 3.5 blocks), Becca Lee (12 digs), and Alyvia King (11 digs). They are 3-8, 5-12.
