Comets Advance To Championship



New Athens scored three straight, but at 19-12, Becca Schlechte had back-to-back kills, followed by another Tabbert kill for a 10-point lead, 22-12.

New Athens had two misses, then on game point, Tabbert swung for the kill, 25-12.

With one win in their pocket, the Comets had to battle against a Jacket team that did not want to go easy.

Game 2 started tit-for-tat. New Athens then scored four straight and forced a Stew-Stras time-out, down 7-4. Coach Ronda's Schlechte's time-out was perfect timing.

Out of the pause, the Comets went on another 9-1 run, that included an 8-point service run for Schlechte. Tabbert had consecutive kills, New Athens had two misses and Tabbert killed back-to-back again for a 10-8 Comet lead.

Quast killed again, before the Jackets scored two straight, 12-11. Tabbert served an ace and New Athens missed a shot, bringing a Jacket time-out at 15-11.


Knop and Quast killed for a 17-12 lead, then New Athens responded with a 7-2 run to knot the score at 19-19. Schlechte swung for a kill and Tabbert and Stremming blocked for a 21-19 lead.

New Athens tied the score again, 21-21, only to have Schlechte kill for another Comet lead, 22-21. The Jackets took their first lead since 8-7 on back-to-back kills, 23-22.

New Athens then shot themselves in the foot and the wound was fatal. They had a service error, 23-23. Schlechte then served out the match, as New Athens had back-to-back hitting errors for the match.

Senior Brittani Tabbert and junior Kendall Knop led at the net with match-high 9 kills, each. Tabbert also had a service ace. Knop had a near double-double, with her nine kills and match-high 10 digs.

Senior Baylee Quast dished a match-high 14 assists and a solo block, in addition to four kills. Freshman Becca Schlechte dished eight assists and got down for eight digs, besides her four kills.
