Delaney Quinn led the team in kills that evening with nine and Tressa Peskar added on four more in their 24 attempts.
Madelyn Oehlke and Jayelyn Johnson worked the serves with twelve assists. The team’s serves were just over 91 percent.
Alexis Curvello and Delaney Quinn helped on defense with 15 digs between the pair, the Hilltoppers had 28 digs total.
August 30 the girls traveled to Ellsworth losing in three sets. “Ellsworth is always a tough team for us, but a great team to go against … We need to step up our offense,” commented coach Edin.
The Hilltoppers returned home on September 4 to host a game against Northwestern. Glenwood City is then off until Thursday, September 13 when it opens Dunn-St. Croix conference play in Mondovi.
