Volleyball

The Tigers finished fifth in their own Heidi Zosel Memorial volleyball invitational Saturday in the NHS gym in Maple.

The Tigers went 1-2 through pool play, then defeated Drummond 2-0 (25-14, 25-13) in the fifth-place match.

Hudson defeated Luck 2-0 in the championship match after going 3-0 in pool play.

“It was a fun day and a really competitive tournament,” NHS coach Charlie Hessel said. “I was proud of how our girls kept their intensity all day and built off of the progress we had made Thursday. We got better as the day went on and are developing consistency.”

On Thursday the Tigers swept Chetek/Weyerhaeuser 3-0  (25-22, 25-20, 25-19).

“Our hitters were aggressive at the net on Saturday and our back court defense was very active and made a number of outstanding plays,” Hessel said. “I could mention a lot of high points for individuals on the day, but the story was how we played as a team. I am looking forward to what we have left.”

Statistical leaders for Northwestern Saturday were: Sydney Anderson, 14 kills; Katie Lundeen, 13 kills; Sam Hoegen, 11 kills; Madison Trautt, 10 kills; Meggan Lind, 54 assists and 14 digs; and Brooke Ogren, 17 digs.

The Tigers improved to 2-3 in the Heart O’ North Conference with Thursday’s win.

“We’ve been talking about the difference between passive and aggressive mistakes and that if we are going to make mistakes, they need to be aggressive ones,” Hessel said. “Our passing and hitting efficiency was much better Thursday than it has been. We missed some serves, but our ace total was up as well.

“We had to play some good defense as well because C/W seemed to be everywhere, and the ball just kept coming back. It was a fun match.”

Statistical leaders for the Tigers were: Hoegen, nine kills; Trautt, seven kills; Anderson, six kills and nine digs; Sara Lahti, five kills and seven digs; Lundeen, four kills; and Lind, 27 assists.

The Tigers (5-10) play at Glenwood City today and Barron Thursday. Both matches begin at 7 p.m.
