Lakeside Lutheran 3, Luther Prep 1
LAKE MILLS — Lakeside Lutheran’s volleyball team defeated Luther Prep 23-25, 25-17, 25-15, 25-9 in a Capitol North match at LLHS on Thursday.
Senior outside hitter Ella Collins had 12 blocks while sophomore middle Ella DeNoyer and junior outside hitter Payton Kuepers both posted 11.
Lakeside (8-2, 2-0) rallied back after struggling with Luther Prep (2-6, 0-3) junior setter Grace Kieselhorst’s serve.
“I think the nerves were running a little high tonight as the girls had a pretty shaky start,” Lakeside Lutheran volleyball coach Jenny Krauklis said. “We made a lot of errors in serve receive and hitting, while Luther Prep was taking care of its side of the net. Luther Prep’s Kieselhorst has a really great serve that we struggled with quite a bit. Once we settled in, and started controlling the ball more, we were able to take control of the match.”
DeNoyer led the team with 5 1/2 blocks.
Junior setter Kaylee Raymond led the team with 20 assists and four aces. DeNoyer and Kuepers both had three aces.
“Ella DeNoyer had a great match,” Krauklis said. “She was hitting well, blocking well and serving well. As a sophomore, she has a very developed sense of the game, and can read really well. It has been fun watching her develop, and playing with confidence this year.”
Sophomore defensive specialist Lydia Bilitz registered 17 digs and junior Kylee Gnabasik had 14 for the Warriors.
Lakeside plays at the Kettle Moraine Lutheran tournament in Jackson Saturday starting at 8:30 a.m.
