Coach Jen Walter said the team played well overall against GFW.

“We had made a few changes to our lineup, so it was good to see the girls settling into their different positions,” Walter said. “I thought we played with a lot of enthusiasm and that also helped carry us to a win.”

Top stats were earned by multiple players:

Bella Hoffmann was 26/26 serving, got 20 set assists and 14 digs. Allie Labat was 22/23 serving, got 29 set assists and 14 digs. Reagan Severson was 15/16 serving, with three aces, five kills and nine digs. Trista Ibberson got 15 kills and five digs. Jaci Domeier got 10 kills and five digs. Sydney Windschitl got 25 digs and was 13/13 serving. Emily Weiss got 7 kills. Madison Mathiowetz was 13/14 serving, got 19 kills and nine digs.

“Every night is a battle, but we hope to continue to keep improving each night,” said Walter.

Saturday morning’s make-up game at MVL was another victory for the Knights.

“After a long week of Homecoming activities, I was unsure of how our Saturday morning game would go,” said Walter. “I was happy to see the girls play aggressively and handle the Chargers attack. We played a nice balanced attack at the net and had some strong blocking from sophomore, Jaci Domeier. It was a great team win, though.”

Madison Mathiowetz got 15 kills, nine digs and one block. Jaci Domeier was 10/12 serving, with one ace, 11 kills and five blocks. Bella Hoffmann got 17 set assists, two aces, and five digs. Allie Labat got 18 set assists, was 11/11 serving, and got three digs. Sydney Windschitl was 14/14 serving and got three aces, four kills and 13 digs.

The cross-town game was scheduled for Tuesday night at St. Mary’s. Tuesday morning an announcement was made that the varsity game was postponed as the Indians are in quarantine.
