PHS, a No. 3 seed, improved to 28-8 on the season. The Eagles came into the regional as a No. 14 seed.

The Panthers advance to the semifinals Thursday, Oct. 24 at home versus No. 6-seeded Chilton at 7 p.m. The Tigers downed No. 11-seeded University School of Milwaukee 25-22, 16-25, 25-16, 25-22 in an opening round match.

“A very nice match for us to mix up our lineup and get all of our roster playing time tonight. We obviously handled them well despite many changes in lineup,” said Panther head coach Peggy Huhn.

Leading the way were senior Kaily Moegenburg, junior Sophie Gentine and freshman Megan Goeser with five kills each. Mary Albert had a team-high 27 assists.

Alyssa Uribe had an impressive 10 ace serves to lead the Panthers. The top servers were Albert with 14-for-14 and Delaney Haese, 11-for-11. Cara Bardon paced her team in digs with 11, followed by Uribe’s seven.

“It was very encouraging play by all three freshmen [Sophie Albert, Jamie Schultz and Goeser] that we moved up for the tournament. They got playing time and handled it well – controlling their nerves and just staying aggressive,” Huhn said,

“Now, we look forward to Chilton on Thursday night. This will be a very competitive game [match]. Everything changes in the postseason as you need to win to play on.

“We need to stay aggressive and offensive, using our strengths. I am encouraged by the way we have been playing the last 1-2 weeks,” the coach added.

The PHS-Chilton winner moves on to the finals Saturday at 7 p.m. against the Kiel-Sheboygan Falls winner at the higher seed. Falls is seeded No. 2 and Kiel, 10th.
