Kayla Halbmaier receives the ball from Red Cloud during the second set of the game. Teammate Lisa Lovoll watches Halbmaier in case she needs any help with sending the ball back over.

 

The volleyball team had its first regular home game of the season on Thursday, Aug. 30, against Red Cloud. The Wildcats defeated the Crusaders in three sets: 25-12, 30-28 and 25-19. 
“We missed way too many serves in the second match,” said coach Renae Schneider. “When you give away eight free points in a game, that is a lot.”
The Crusaders made a comeback when the Wildcats were going for their match point, pushing the Wildcats to 30 points.
“They stayed calm and made the plays they needed to win,” Schneider said.
Schneider is looking for more consistency from key players.
“They know the ‘right’ thing to do at the net,” she said. “I want to see more aggressiveness. They need to adapt to the sets.”
Leading the night in serving was Olivia Dahlstrom with six aces. She was 12 of 16 serving, five of eight hitting and nine of 10 receiving. Catlyn Cordell was nine of 10 serving with four aces, three of three hitting with two kills, three of four setting and five of 10 receiving. Lisa Lovoll was eight of 11 serving with four aces, 21 of 26 hitting with 14 kills and 26 of 26 receiving with three digs.
