Volleyball cruises past Mt. Mary and Cardinal Stritch
Athletics - posted on 9/1/2005
The Muskie volleyball team started their season off by sweeping both the Mount Mary Blue Angels and Cardinal Stritch Wolves 3-0.
"Great start," said head coach Chad Schreiber. "We were able to try different line-up combinations, we got better as the night went on and we discovered where we can improve. I really like the way we responded to Stritch's runs with a run of our own. If we can keep the competitive drive shown tonight, good things will continue to happen."
In the first match against Mount Mary the Muskies won in three games by the scores of 30-6, 30-13 and 30-14. During the match Lakeland set a school record for aces by serving 23 against the Blue Angels. Also, senior Megan Maas's eight aces in the match moved her into a tie for second place all-time in aces scored during a match. Junior Erin Helbing led the team with four kills, five digs and one ace, while freshman Danielle Swindell recorded seven digs and three aces in a match that saw all 16 Lakeland athletes receive playing time.
In the second match of the night Cardinal Stritch provided more of a challenge but still fell in three straight games by the scores of 30-19, 30-13, and 30-19. A 9-0 Muskie run to open up the first game, along with great defense and blocking set the tone early as the Muskies never looked back against the Wolves. Freshman Heidi Kramer starred for Lakeland with 10 kills, a .260 hitting percentage, 14 digs and three aces, while senior Lana Neuman recorded 30 assists, eight digs, three blocks and two aces on the night.
The Muskies will face Edgewood at the Wehr Center on Tuesday at 7:00pm. The match will mark the first official event for Lakeland in the brand new Moose and Dona Woltzen Gymnasium.
