Panthers only 1-3 in ECC mini-tourney

BERLIN – The Plymouth Panthers posted a 1-3 record in the East Central Conference girls volleyball mini-tournament here Saturday.

Plymouth’s only win was in its final match of the day against Berlin, 25-18, 25-15. The Panthers lost their first three matches – 9-25, 18- 25 versus Waupun; 21-25, 16-25 against Winneconne; and 23-25, 16-25 to Campbellsport.

PHS finished ECC dual play at 8-6 and tied for third with Campbellsport. Winneconne won the league title with a 13-1 mark and Kettle Moraine Lutheran earned second at 10-4.

In the Berlin dual, Megan Goeser and Sophie Albert keyed the Panthers’ attack with nine and seven kills, respectively. Plymouth’s other statistical leaders included: serving – Elizabeth Baus, 17-for- 17; solo blocks – Goeser, five; assists – Jessica Schumacher, 12; and serve reception – Baus, 14- for-14.

“We were able to get more girls into this match to give them an opportunity and I think they did well,” said PHS head coach Peggy Huhn

“Emily Majerus did very well in the back row and Carly Triebensee got a good look in the front.

“We definitely turned it around this match at the end of a very difficult day. It could have been a lot worse to walk out of the gym without a win at all,” said Huhn.

The Panthers’ hitting versus Waupun was led by Albert with nine kills. Schumacher had a teamhigh seven assists. The team’s other statistical leaders included: serving – Baus, 7-for-7; digs – Baus, seven; and serve reception – Albert, 10-for-10 and Baus, 20- for-22.

Baus paced PHS in digs in the Winneconne match with nine. The Panthers’ other statistical leaders were: kills – Goeser and Albert, six each; ace serves – Jordyn Thomas, two; serving – Thomas, 8-for-8; assists – Schumacher, nine; and serve reception – Majerus and Albert, both 8-for-8.

“The first game [against Winneconne] again was not too bad but we just came out in the second game and were cold,” Huhn.

“We had lots of defensive errors on our part of not being where we should be, etc. Our attacking errors were also higher than normal.”

Albert’s seven kills led the PHS attack against Campbellsport. The team’s other statistical leaders included: serving – Albert, 13-for- 13; solo blocks – Goeser, two; digs – Albert, 11; assists – Schumacher, seven; and serve reception – Albert, 14-for-14 and Baus, 17- for-18.

“It was a rough, rough match for us. Not at all how we wanted to start off our day. The first set was better than the second but I think they just came out so strong then in the second after winning the first that we didn’t respond well,” Huhn pointed out.

“Campbellsport came ready to play and played very well.”
