County prep volleyball teams rally around weekend tournaments
Plum City and Prescott's prep volleyball teams used Saturday tournaments to hopefully turn their respective seasons into positive directions.
Prescott played in the River Falls Tournament. The Cardinals had lost a pair of 3-1 matches last week to River Falls and New Richmond. But Saturday the Cardinals, led by the hitting of Anna Weiser and the assists from Alexi Schommer, went 4-2. PHS is now 10-9 overall and has a key Middle Border Conference match at home Tuesday vs. Osceola, last year's MBC co-champ along with Prescott.
Plum City was in the middle of a six-match losing streak, including the Blue Devil's first two D-SC matches against Mondovi and Pepin by 3-0 sweeps, before Saturday's quadrangular at Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran. But there PC went 5-2, their only losses coming to the host Lancers. They swept Blair-Taylor 25-19, 25-10 and Independence 25-16 and 25-11 and took one game over ECIL 25-22. The deciding game vs. Immanuel went well past 15 points as won 22-20 by the host school. Plum City had 11 kills and seven blocks in their games with ECIL.
PC's good play this past weekend has their record at 7-9 overall before a key match Tuesday at 12-3 Spring Valley.
