Trinity 4th at Peoria Tourney

Christ Lutheran School hosted their 24th Annual Volleyball Tournament on October 11-13 where 24 teams from Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri competed. Stewardson Trinity brought home the 4th place plaque.

Trinity made it through pool play on Friday, defeating Immanuel Lutheran #2 Belvidere 21-7, 21-13, and Bethany Lutheran, Naperville, 21-15, 21-10. On Saturday, the Cardinals battled and came out on top with Bethel Morton, 21-10, 15-21, 21-8, and Trinity Centralia, 18-21, 21-17, 21-19, which landed Trinity in the Top 4.

“Unfortunately by the time we played Zion Belleville,” said Trinity coach Ronda Schlechte. “We had lost a lot of energy, but didn’t give up without a fight.”

The match went 3 games, for the 3rd match in a row, and Trinity lost, 21-16, 12-21, 16-21. In the Belleville game alone, Megan (Schlechte) had 52 swings with only 2 errors and 18 kills. Jocelyn (Schultz) led the day with 6 aces and 46 assists while Megan led with 29 kills and 22 digs.

“We met Christ Peoria for 3rd place, where we once again went 3 games,” Coach Schlechte said. “Christ overpowered us, 25-16, 25-19, 20-25. Calla Roney stepped up and really helped Megan out with hitting this match. She scored 21 of her 56 kills in this match alone.”

Megan also led with 21 digs and Kelsey Beitz led with 4 critical aces.

“5th grader Anna Schlechte amazed me by recovering many of Christ’s hard serves and pulled up 5 tough digs,” Coach Schlechte said. “Christ didn’t have any mercy on my younger 2 and Anna, along with 6th grader Martina Gratz, were able to handle the pressure and pull up some nice saves. We may only have 2 hitters, but the rest of the team has to pull their weight to help with the wins.”

“As the officials took a timeout over a score dispute, we stood in awe of the entire gym,” Coach Schlechte said. “Everyone, except the fans for Christ, stood and chanted, ‘Let’s go Cardinals.’ It was awesome to hear that. The smiles on the girls’ faces couldn’t have been any bigger.”
