A No. 4 seed means Weyauwega-Fremont’s volleyball team will open state tournament play at home.
The Indians will host fifth-seeded Wild Rose at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, in a Division 3 regional quarterfinal match.
W-F tuned up for tournament by knocking off Manawa, Stevens Point Pacelli and Amherst Oct. 12 in the first round of Central Wisconsin 8 Conference pool play.
The Indians, seeded second in pool play, then advanced to the championship match Oct. 15 at top-seeded Wittenberg-Birnamwood.
“Wittenberg has a four-point lead in the race for the conference title, but we are not going to let that stop us from leaving it all on the court,” coach Rena Tomaszewski said. “These girls are well aware of the outcome as far as the sole possession of the CWC-8 championship, but that is just going to give them more drive to defeat the Chargers.”
W-F opened play Oct. 12 with a 25-19, 25-10 win over Manawa. Morgan Wilson had three solo blocks, two assisted blocks and two aces; Becky Schroeder and Megan Young added four kills; Jordan Krause finished with 18 assists; and Kelsey Gilbert served up nine points.
