PREP GIRLS VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP
Crusaders go 6-1 in tournament
MEQUON — The Catholic Memorial High School girls volleyball team is back on top, for now. CMH won the Joust Volleyball Tournament — which is one of the best in the state every year — Saturday at Homestead.
The Crusaders went 6-1 in the tournament and beat Burlington 29-27, 25-18 in the championship match. CMH’s lone loss was to Kimberly in the first match of the tournament Friday.
“We are still a young team, but I thought we meet challenges as a much more experienced team would,” CMH coach Ted Schulte said. “The passing and defense of junior Tori North provided a stabilizing effect when we were struggling Friday.” In the championship match, sophomore Lexi Alden was on her “A” game. When she re-entered the game tied at 24, she had five kills on the front row, served the game point and on that point, she made a diving save in the back row to set up the point. For the tournament, Alden had 70 kills and 60 digs. Senior Lexie Calloway had 57 kills and 59 digs.
CMH also beat New Berlin West, Brookfield East, Muskego, Westosha Central and Greendale over the course of the tournament.
Brookfield East finished in sixth place and took first place in its pool. After its loss to CMH, Brookfield East lost to Greendale, but beat Neenah 18-25, 25-20, 15-8 in the sixth place match.
