St. Michael sweeps St. Louis in middle school volleyball

St. Michael swept St. Louis in middle school volleyball Thursday night on the Cardinals’ home court.

In the 7th grade match, St. Michael took the first set, 25-24. SLS won the second set, 25-21 but lost the third set, 15-10.

Maci Smith led the Cardinals in scoring with 14 points across the three sets.  Izzy Dierckman, Elsa Schneider, Lillian Scheibler, and Emma Hunter all contributed with their serving.

In the 8th grade match, St. Michael once won the first set, 25-23.  SLS came back to win the second set, 25-22, while St. Michael took the third set, 15-10.
Ava Hollins, Bella Watson, and Maci Smith were all in double-digit scoring for St. Louis, while Campbell Miles and Natalie Kranz stood out defensively, and Lillian Scheibler scored her first kill of the season.
“The theme of the night was to be fearless and be relentless.  Everyone came out with intensity and rebounded beautifully from the tough loss earlier in the week. The 7th-grade set win was their first win of the season,” said Cardinals coach Ashley Kranz.
“I can’t say enough how proud I am of the work they’re putting in, and the improvement they’re showing,” Kranz added.
St. Louis will be back in action Tuesday at Greensburg.
