LITTLEFORK— The long bus ride to Littlefork didn’t seem to tire the Timberwolves, who thoroughly dominated the Vikings in a three-set match Tuesday evening. The reigning Section 7A champions took it 25-9-, 25-13, and 25-10 to improve to 3-0 on the young season.
“The game went well,” said Ely Head Coach Megan Wognum. “It’s been really fun to watch our team progress over the last three weeks.”
During that time, Ely has only lost a single set, a 25-23 match-opening loss to Greenway in the second match of the season. As was the case last year, the Wolves have multiple players they can rely on to get the job done, and that’s reflected in the stats.
On Tuesday, it was Hannah Penke who led the way offensively, with a dozen kills in addition to seven digs. Lilli Rechichi added six kills, seven digs, three aces, and two solo blocks, while Audrey Kallberg posted six kills and four digs. Clare Thomas posted five kills, six digs and three aces, while setter Sarah Visser posted five digs, 19 assists, and five ace serves. Sadie Rechichi added five aces and three digs.
“We are starting to use skills like serving as a more strategic part of the game,” noted Wognum. “It is also nice to see our offense be a little quicker when we have the opportunity with free balls.”
The undefeated Wolves will travel to Greenway on Saturday to take part in a weekend tournament. They’ll be in Aurora next Thursday to take on Mesabi East.
