Weyauwega-Fremont has received the top seed for the upcoming Central Wisconsin 8 Conference pool play tournament, which determines the overall conference champion.
The Indians were 6-0 in CWC-8 matches heading into the final match Oct. 7 at home against Manawa.
W-F will host the fourth-, fifth- and eighth-seeded teams in the first round of pool play that gets under way at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. The second-seeded team will host the third-, sixth- and seventh-seeds at the same time.
The top two teams from pool play will then meet at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 14, with the highest-seeded team hosting the match.
The Indians swept Amherst Oct. 2 to improve to 6-0 on the season in CWC-8 matches. Scores were 25-15, 25-17, 25-14.
“The girls played consistently throughout the match and made some great connections for the attacks,” coach Rena Tomaszewski said.
Hannah Sroka and Courtney Gorges led the team with nine digs. Jordan Krause had a team-high 25 assists, while Rachel Knorr had three solo blocks and Megan Young and Becky Schroeder led the team in kills with 12 and 10, respectively.
“We are seeded first, so this is a great advantage to have by being able to play on our home court,” Tomaszewski said. “We understand the pressure and the girls are ready to fight for the conference title.”
The Indians also posted a 3-2 record Oct. 4 at the Wrightstown Invitational.
W-F defeated Southern Door (25-21, 25-10), beat Green Bay Southwest (25-23, 25-13), fell to Hilbert (26-16, 15-25, 17-19), lost to Plymouth (25-23, 24-26, 7-15) and knocked off West De Pere (25-19, 23-25, 15-6).
“We came out of it 3-2, although if we had kept our momentum going out of the first two matches, we could likely have made it into the championship match,” Tomaszewski said.
The Indians finished fifth in the tournament’s Gold Bracket.
“The tournament gave us a good look at what areas we need work,” Tomaszewski said. “The team is still improving.”
Team leaders included Krause (80 assists, six aces); Young (34 kills, 11 blocks); Knorr (eight blocks); Gorges (40 digs); Sroka (37 digs); Schroeder (31 kills); and Karissa Akey (20 kills).
