The Panthers upped their East Central Conference dual record to 5-2 which puts them in second place.

PHS chalked up 25 kills, led by Sophie Albert and Emma Grapentine with seven each (season-high total for Grapentine).

“We had quite an amazing match on Thursday. We finally came out to a match and took care of all the ‘little’ things that we have been needing to do,” said PHS head coach Peggy Huhn.

“This past week of practice we really emphasized always playing the ball and not letting it drop to the floor. We needed to minimize our mistakes on fundamentals like balls dropping, missing serves and getting third contacts in the court. We did this on Thursday. This allowed us to really get our offense pumping.”

“Emma played really strong on our right side. When she has a good game, it trickles over to everyone else. I was very proud to see her play like she did. This then opened up the outside for Sophie Albert who also had such a great game [match] for us,” said coach Huhn.

“Our set selection by both Jessica [Schumacher] and Maggie was very dynamic and very hard to pick up. Both Cece and Megan had very strong net play and blocked incredibly well. We were able to stop their offense.

“Emily Majerus is really taking the libero [back-row specialist] position to a new level,” said the coach.

Sadie Kosciuk led the Wolves in kills with six. Kylee Whitford had a team-high 10 assists.
