Blair-Taylor volleyball traveled to Elk Mound Aug. 29 for a quad tournament, coming away with some successful matches and games.

They matched up with Elk Mound first in a two set match, losing both sets 16-25 and 13-25.

“The girls played hard, just had a hard time getting it all together and playing solid,” head coach Tammy Stensven said.

Next they matched up with Plum City, which went into three sets.

“It was a bit of a rough start, then they got into the groove and played hard and together as a team,” Stensven said.

The Wildcats would lose the first set 17-25 and then come back in the second and third with scores of 25-23 and 15-10 to take the match.

Their last match was against Greenwood, losing in straight sets 20-25 and 19-25.

“We are just making some silly and small mistakes, and when you match up with teams like these that is what takes it from us. The girls are really a strong team, we just have to believe in ourselves and the good things will fall into place. I was proud of how the girls played and we will keep encouraging them to be and stay strong,” Stensven said.

McKenna Nehring came in on the night with 18 kills, followed by Liza Howe with 13 kills and 4 aces and Danyelle Waldera had 11 kills. Marlee Nehring came in with 20 assists, followed by Amber Lambright with 16 assists.
