Lady Cardinals host Twin Valley triangular

Wetmore hosted their first home meet since the beginning of the season when they welcomed Troy and Onaga to the Cardinal nest on Tuesday, Oct. 4. Wetmore did not pick up wins for the night, but they gained valuable game experience and gained some new knowledge.

“We lost both matches, but there was improvement in both,” said Head Coach Cindy Osterhaus. “During the Troy match, we attacked the ball more and they made some great hustle plays.”

Wetmore fell to Troy’s Trojans in straight sets, but battled and kept the scores close dropping both, 17-25 and 18-25.

“During the Onaga match, they were aggressive at the net and serves received was good for us,” Coach Osterhaus said. “Another area for strength for us is our serving.”

Onaga used runs to build a lead and eventually handed Wetmore losses in straight sets, 10-25 and 15-25.

“We continue to work on our hitting and being able to finish plays, so that the opponent has to make plays to get the point. It was Parents/Senior night and we honored the three seniors that played their last game at home,” Coach Osterhaus said.

Wetmore traveled to Hanover to play in their last league match-up on Tuesday, Oct. 11, in a triangular with Doniphan West and Hanover. These results were not available at The Herald’s press time.

The Cardinals also will compete in the Twin Valley League Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Onaga.
