Waupun Volleyball State Tournament 2014

November 11, 2014~

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.

Another great volleyball match for the 2009 “Volley for the Cure”.

Wausau West prevailed this year 3 games to 1.

Scores of 25-21, 25-15, 10-25, 25-23 handing the Lumberjacks their first WVC loss of the season.

Wausau East put up a valiant effort and almost pushed it to a fifth game but came up a little short.

Players of note, from this photographers vantage.

Wausau West, # 21, Carissa had another wonderful match.

# 13, Amanda was fired up throughout the match.

Wausau East, # 2 Jamie, served well and added life when most needed.

Also, #4 Cindy, had one of the most unbelievable shots I have seen in years on the court. Still marveling at that one handed return for a winner!

All players contributed to another great volleyball match and an even better cause!

Stay tuned for more photos to be posted later today!
