Coach Donna Jobke concluded, “Abby Krueger had awesome, consistent serves. Caitie Carpenter had a heads-up tip for a point. We had a few three-hit series on our side resulting in points. Nice job ladies!”
The A Team girls tried but couldn’t pull out a win, 25-27, 25-20, 20-25, 13-25.

I have confidence that we can pull things together and come out stronger in the games to come!”
On Friday, Sept. 10, the St. Martin Girls Volleyball team traveled to Green Bay to take on their opponent, Redeemer.

Tiffany Bricco led the fight with 13 service points, and Jessie Barker contributed seven service points, while Abby Wagenson helped in that department also.
