Comets challenge, finish 2nd

Stew-Stras played their way into the top seed of their pool of the NTC volleyball tourney and parlayed that to a trip to the Saturday Gold Flight. They battled, but couldn’t beat top-seeded St. Anthony, losing the rematch and finishing 2nd in the tourney.

Leading the Comets at the net was Kendall Knop. Knop racked up 44 kills in four matches, with 13 of them against Windsor in pool play.

Brittani Tabbert came up big in the 3-game set against Neoga in the Gold Flight. Tabbert swung for an area season-high 21 kills in the match and finished with 36 total kills in the tourney.

Becca Schlechte dished out 48 assists and Baylee Quast dished 45. Schlechte also got down for 58 digs.

The match against Neoga saw Stew-Stras covering the court with an area season-high 78 digs, led by Knop’s season-high 20. That was one less than Okaw Valley’s Shelby Dash, who had a 21-dig performance in a 2-game set earlier in the season.

They also recorded 47 assists towards 47 kills against Neoga, an area-season high.

“We came into the tournament a little rough on Friday, but played much better on Saturday,” said Comet coach Ronda Schlechte. “We were able to battle through Neoga and come out with a win. The 1st game of St. Anthony, girls played tough and held their ground.”

They lost in OT, 27-25.

“Game 2, we struggled with some serve receive that hurt us early and also with blocking,” Coach Schlechte said.

They lost 25-19.

“Overall, I’m very happy with the efforts from the girls,” Schlechte said. “2nd place is nothing to be ashamed of.”

Stew-Stras (19-9) was to go for their 20th win at Casey on Monday.
