Although the Lakeland College men's volleyball team exhibited intense blocking skills in a tight match with UW-Oshkosh, recording 10 solo blocks and 16 block assists, the Muskies dropped their first Wisconsin Volleyball Conference match of the season to the visiting Titans, 3-0 (28-30, 29-31, 33-35), on Thursday, Mar. 8.
"The scores were indicative of the tightness of the match," said head coach Chad Schreiber, as two of the three games played went into extra points. "Only early in game three did one team have an advantage when Oshkosh jumped out early. The rest of the evening the match was played within three points."
Lakeland (20-3, 5-1 WVC) was led on offense by senior outside hitter Matt Martin with 15 kills, and sophomore outside hitter Joe Julkowski's 12 kills. Martin and Julkowski also contributed on the defensive end with seven digs and two blocks apiece. Junior middle hitter Jared Rohland also played a strong match, knocking down seven kills on .467 hitting, and tallying three solo blocks and three block assists.
"There were a couple of schematic things we planned to do that did not get executed, which is disappointing, but it mainly came down to them winning the serving and serve receive battle," Schreiber said. "We are still going to get more than our fair share of opportunities against them, but we need six guys on the court focusing and executing at all times."
The Muskies will continue WVC match play with UW-Whitewater on Wednesday, Mar. 21. Match time is set for 7 p.m. in Lakeland's Moose and Dona Woltzen Gymnasium.
