HGHS, 40-4 and ranked No. 3 in the Wisconsin Volleyball Coaches Association D-3 poll, face Manitowoc Lutheran in the semifinals Thursday, Oct. 30 at New Holstein at 7 p.m. Both teams were No. 1 seeds in their respective regionals. The winner advances to the fi- nals Saturday at Sheboygan South against the Lake Country Lutheran (Hartland)-Kenosha Christian Life victor at 7 p.m. The sectional champion advances to state. “Manitowoc Lutheran is a wellcoached team and historically been a very good program. We have not played them the last couple of years but have had some great match-ups in the past,” said Tiger head coach Brett Damrow. “They have very solid attackers and are very scrappy. They don’t let a lot of balls hit the floor. “We will continue to need to win the serve and serve-receive matchup. We have been serving well the entire year and more recently we have been putting pressure on the correct passers in each rotation,” said Damrow. “We are really focusing on the things we can control in practice. We don’t worry about the end result but focus on the process, and compete hard on every play, and we will feel good about ourselves, regardless of the outcome. “We can’t focus on how they will react to what we do. We need to focus on the details and actions that give us the most information to put pressure on them. Our team is excited to have opportunity to compete on the biggest stage,” said the coach. Damrow said the No. 1 keys to the Tigers’ success are team unity and mental toughness.
