SHIOCTON – Weyauwega-Fremont and Shiocton gave volleyball fans plenty of action Sept. 21 during the teams’ annual Dig Pink match.
Shiocton took three of five games from the Indians in the match, which raises funds for breast cancer research.
Each team won two games before Shiocton closed out the match with a 15-9 win. The Chiefs won the opener 25-20, W-F won the second 26-24, Shiocton won the third 25-22 and W-F forced a fifth game with a 25-11 win in the fourth game.
“There were several great rallies by the teams as they fought for the chance to improve their records, as we are nearing the home stretch of the regular season,” coach Rena Tomaszewski said. “We showed some great passing in the back court from Teal Tomaszewski, Bailey Kapitzke and Danielle Austreng.
“We put up 69 perfect passes and had only eight passing errors off the receive,” she added. “Unfortunately those eight added up, along with 15 serving errors to give Shiocton the advantage they needed to win the match.”
Kapitzke, Austreng and Dani Johnson led the Indains with 12, 11 and 10 kills, respectively; Rachel Knecht finished with 22 assists, 11 service points, including five aces; four block assists; and a solo block; and Tomaszewski chipped in with 25 digs.
“It wasn’t a total loss for the evening, as both teams also battled it out for a great cause,” Tomaszewski said. “Both teams worked together for the second year to promote breast cancer awareness through the Sideout Foundation and the fans in attendance wore pink to show support. The attendance for the event was outstanding, as both teams had super enthusiasm from their fan sections.”
The Indians hosted Amherst Tuesday and will host Manawa in a Central Wisconsin 8 Conference matchup Tuesday, Oct. 5.
