PHS hiked its Eastern Wisconsin Conference dual record to 6-1

(15-5 overall).

“Tonight was a well-fought, incredibly close match. Often, rallies were only trading points,” said Panther head coach Peggy Huhn.

“We had a difficult time staying in rotation in order to create some separation in score. New Holstein tipped and dumped against us very well.

“Our pregame plan was to stay offensive and at the same time key in on their outside hitter [Tori Zipperer] as they really like to set her,” said Huhn.

Plymouth’s Alyssa Uribe backs up Albert. — Review photo by Greg Ceilley “I think we did a very good job controlling her attack. The kills that did go down were tip kills and dumps. This is an improvement – being able to defend against the outside. Now, our improvement needs to come in picking up that dump.”

Kaily Moegenburg keyed the PHS hitting with 21 kills and Nikki Reil had 18. Mary Albert had a teamhigh 40 assists. The top servers were Alyssa Uribe with 15-for-15, Albert, 12-for-12 and Moegenburg, 8-for-8.

Reil led in solo blocks with two. Sophie Gentine paced the team in total blocks with four (one solo and three assists). Moegenburg was first in digs with 27, followed by Mackenzie Haese with 26 and Uribe, 23. Cara Bardon and Haese led in serve reception with 12-for-12 and 17-for-18, respectively.

“I think our middles did a great job blocking tonight and then staying offensive which always wears down the other team as it opens up things for us, offensively,” Huhn said.

“A win for the entire squad as I know those girls who may not have seen court time were crucial in our preparation for New Holstein this week.”
