Attended the Wisconsin State Volleyball tournament on Friday evening (November 7, 2014) and covered the Waupun Warriors.  Always high expectations for Waupun when I make the trip to State which takes place at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Tough match as Tomahawk defeated Waupun in four sets, 25-20, 25-20, 14-25, 25-20.

“I think that we didn’t come out as strong as we should have,” said senior Blake Buchholz, who had a Division 2 state game record 28 kills in a match that covered four sets. “We played our hearts out and it showed. I couldn’t be more proud of my team right now, we did as much as we could.”

“It was a tough Tomahawk team, we knew that they were going to be a tough team,” Waupun co-coach Krista Baisch said. “I thought that we didn’t play to our level that we needed to play to. I don’t think Tomahawk beat us tonight, I think we beat ourselves.”

“There were a few moments in the match where we could see us coming alive but then it just went away,” Baisch said.

Going into the game, Waupun knew that Anna Nyberg and Hanna Meyer were going to be tough. The duo combined for 33 kills.

“They are great left sides, but once we figured out how to block them, I thought we shut them down pretty well,” Baisch said.

Stats: WAU — Blake Buchholz 28 kills, 18 digs, 2 aces; Claiborn Bronkhorst 11 kills; Taylor Brown 18 digs; Jasmyn Bensley 10 digs; Kyra Verheyen 38 assists, 9 digs.

It’s been a while since I updated the blog so a quick note or two.

I have another Badger football game this weekend against Indiana. After attending last weekends Badger football game have to share how impressed I was with the singer of the National Anthem, Skylar Stecker, left me impressed to say the least. After doing some research found out her parent’s recently moved to Southern California from Wisconsin in order to pursue her career. Interesting to say career when referring to an 11-year-old but if her parents are good with it so be it. An article by Doug Moe of the Wisconsin State Journal on the Stecker story. Her voice and stage presence belie her age.  Will be fun to see where her career takes her.
