The Whitewater volleyball team played in the Kettle Moraine Invitational this past weekend where they achieved many small victories on their half of the court. The Whippets played scrappy defense by reading their hitters and blockers more effectively. From the serving line Whitewater was able to serve aggressively and hit specific zones which often kept their opponents from running a fast offense. Unfortunately these small victories didn’t equate to any match victories, but nonetheless the weekend helped provide strong competition which prepares them for this upcoming week where the Whippets will see two more conference opponents.
Whitewater will be looking to improve to 3-3 in conference play on Tuesday, Oct. 1st as they host Edgerton, which is also 2-3 in the Rock Valley. This will be the “Play for Trey” night as they honor Treyton Kilar. The event will not only honor Trey but be a way to continue to think about making good decisions in all aspects of life. The High School SADD group and VB team will have some fun events planned. Be sure to wear Blue and Gold- both the Brewer colors and Treyton’s Field of Dreams colors! Game time- JV at 4:45 and Varsity at 6:30!
Thursday, Oct. 3rd the Whippets travel to Brodhead to take on the Cardinals who are sitting at 4-1 in conference play. With the opportunity to win these next two conference matches, the Whippets could move into the top tier teams of the conference. This year there is a lot of parity in the conference, so picking up two more wins this week would really help with seeding for the conference tournament.
