Tigers Struggle to Gain Eighth win of Season

 

Tigers Struggle to Gain Eighth win of Season

BY MADELINE HUWALDT 

 

On October 1st the Osmond volleyball team (7-4) traveled to Elgin to compete in a triangular with Elgin/Pope John (6-9) and Central Valley (13-3).

 

The Tigers played the second match of the night against Central Valley where they lost in two sets 25-13, 25-23. 

 

It seemed as though the Tigers were unprepared to play on Tuesday night as they started out very slow against the Cougars. 

 

The Tigers were unable to gain any type of energy throughout the first match; even in the second set. Overall it was a rough night for the girls. 

 

The second set proved to be a little better for the Tigers but they were still unable to gain any kind of momentum or energy.  Although the second set was close there was no communication which led to a defeat. 

 

The starters for both matches of the night were seniors Kennedy Johnson (OH) and Madeline Huwaldt (MH), junior Elisa Herrera (L), sophomores Kiera Moes (MH), Grace Gansebom (S), Macy Aschoff (OH), and Bailey Schmit (RH). 

 

Also getting playing time during the matches were sophomore Lillie Gansebom and Freshman Cali Gutz. 

 

Johnson led the Tigers in kills with eight followed by Aschoff with three, and G.Gansebom, Schmit, and Moes each with one. 

 

G.Gansebom had eleven set assists. 

 

Johnson had 2 solo blocks followed by Huwaldt and Aschoff each with one.

 

Aschoff and Schmit each had one ace serve.

 

Aschoff led the team in digs with fourteen followed by Herrera with eleven, G.Gansebom and Johnson each had ten, Schmit with six, and Moes with one. 

 

The second match for the Tigers was against Elgin/Pope John. The Tigers knew this would be a tough match and did their best to try and win. Despite their efforts, they got defeated in two sets 25-18, 25-23. 

 

Both sets of the game were very close and the Tigers constantly fought hard and refused to give up. 

 

In both sets, the Tigers seemed to lack the energy they would have needed to be victorious. Once again the lack of communication was one of the main reasons for this hard loss. 

 

Aschoff led the Tigers in kills with eleven followed by Johnson with nine, Huwaldt with three, and G.Gansebom, Moes, and Herrera each with one. 

 

G.Gansebom had seventeen set assists and Schmit had four.

 

Johnson had one solo block.

 

Johnson led the team in digs with sixteen followed by Aschoff with fifteen, Schmit and Herrera each with eight, G.Gansebom with three, and Moes with one. 

 

The Tigers are now 7-6 on the season and are hoping to gain their first win since September 17 on Thursday, October 3 in their last home game of the season against Wakefield. The JV game will start at 5:30 with Varsity to follow.
