From Coach Bullis:

Whitewater competed in the Rock Valley Conference Tourney this past weekend. They went 3-2 on the day. The Whippets started off defeating Clinton 2-1 (22-25, 25-21, 15-8) then lost a close match to Jefferson 1-2 (13-25, 26-24, 8-15) then went on to defeat Edgerton 2-0 (25-15, 25-23). The Whippets ended the day in a battle against Big Foot, fighting for the 5th place position. Big Foot won the battle 1-2 by the scores of 19-25, 26-24, 9-15.

The team played very well after a bit of a slow start. Kacie Carollo and Kiyla Kopecky led the way in the middle blocking and running a faster-paced offense. Anna Reimer and Maddie Brown were solid on the outside being able to spread the offense out. Catherine Yang did an outstanding job as our libero digging the big guns in the Rock Valley and frustrating them which led to many teams to tip and play a less powerful game. Cora Lino and Emme Bullis switched between running a 6-2 and 5-1 offense which prompted the opponents to really focus on which setter was setting and which was hitting and caused some confusion for the Whippet opponents.

The Whippets return to action Tuesday night as they host Columbus at 7:00 for the first round of regional play.
