Mixed results for OMS spikers in season opener

Posted

With enough practices under their belts and a COVID-19 quarantine behind them, Owensville Middle School Dutchgirl volleyball finally opened their season Friday night welcoming Pacific’s Lady Indians to Owensville High School.

Opening the night with the seventh-grade match, the Dutchgirls gave coach Kari Nolting a nice birthday present with a season-opening win in two sets 25-22 and 25-19.

Addison Scheer served a team-high three aces followed by an ace each from Clara Julius, Brooke Jahnsen, Rachel Koepke and Lily Barker.

Going for the sweep, Jamie Ridenhour’s eighth-grade Dutchgirls took on the visitors from Pacific.

Unable to get a lead, Owensville fell to Pacific in two sets by identical scores of 25-15 and 25-15.

Cameron Nowack led the eighth-grade Dutchgirls with two aces.

She was followed by one ace each from Ruvia Nowack, Addison Menz, Elizabeth Adams and Madi Lewis.

Saturday in their annual tournament, the eighth-grade Dutchgirls made it to bracket play finishing second in their pool behind Washington.

Falling to St. Clair in two sets (25-13, 25-11) in the semifinals, Owensville faced Washington in the third-place match.

Unable to avenge an earlier loss in pool play, the eighth-grade Dutchgirls settled for fourth place in their tournament following a loss in two sets to the Lady Blue Jays 25-20 and 25-14.
