Volleyball falls to St. Thomas More

In a highly anticipated rematch, the Custer High School volleyball team traveled to Rapid City on Monday night to play St. Thomas More for the second time this season. While the first meeting in September was a sweep in Custer’s favor, Monday’s game was the complete opposite. The Cavaliers swept Custer in three sets, 25-14, 25-19 and 25-23.
“We need to get back to the basics of getting our serves over and not to their defensive specialist every time and focus on our passing,” coach Renae Schneider said. “We only served 83 percent and our dig percentage was only 76 last night. That will not get us very far in postseason play.”
“We play STM well at home, but not on the road,” she added.
Tia Goebel was nine of nine serving, six of seven hitting with two kills, 58 of 61 setting with 17 assists and had five digs. Olivia Dahlstrom was nine of 13 serving with one ace, five of five receiving with eight digs and one of one setting. Lisa Lovoll was eight of 10 serving with one ace, 17 of 24 hitting with eight kills, 29 of 30 receiving with 14 digs and had one solo block.
