“We were very much in control all match,” Panthers’ coach Peggy Huhn said. “Their offense was much slower than ours, which can sometimes prove difficult for teams. I felt overall we really controlled every aspect of the game. It was a good challenge for us to keep the tempo of our offense up at all times.”

Elsa Blad totaled 14 digs, Cece Huhn finished with 11 kills, Hana Goeser added nine kills and Ellie Stachling provided seven of them.

“We need to continue to do this, continue to play our speed of volleyball,” the coach said. “Overall it is a nice start to the season. We meet KML (Kettle Moraine Lutheran) Thursday which is obviously a big jump in competition. We will really see where we stand in this conference.”


The girls team had little trouble winning the Kiel Invitational on Thursday.

The Panthers totaled 39 points, well ahead of Oostburg (83) and Two Rivers (89).

Plymouth’s five girls were all in the top 17, including three among the first five to finish.

Olivia Rabe’s third-place time was 16 minute 9 seconds, Maggie Munson finished fourth in 16:17 and fifth went to Lauren Rabe in 16:38.

The final two Panthers were Amanda Triebensee, who crossed in 16:57 for 11th place, and Izzy Kastelic, who took 17th in 17:37.

For the boys, Max Hassel turned in a time of 17:55, good for seventh place, in leading the Panthers to a fifth-place finish.

Other Panthers included Charlie Waitkus (19:04), Joe Mertes (19:49), Johnathon Wishman (19:49) and Andrew Steinhardt (20:00).


The Panthers tied host Port Washington, 2-2, on Thursday in a non-conference game.

They held a 2-0 lead on goals by Keegan Gafney and Bennett Dale, but the Pirates scored twice in the final 12 minutes.

“Their huge roster of 22 players wore our defense down,” Plymouth coach John Lenz said. “With missing players, our roster was down to 14. We battled hard and left it all on the field. Most of my players played 90 minutes and did a tremendous job against a fast and fresh team.”
