If the Buccaneers were feeling let down at all after a loss earlier this week, it didn’t show Friday.
The Waterville-Elysian-Morristown volleyball team went 3-0 to start the Class A Showcase at the Midwest Volleyball Warehouse in Burnsville on Friday to set itself up to play for a championship.
The Bucs beat Wabasso 20-25, 25-12, Henning 25-13, 25-10 and Mable-Canton 23-25, 25-18, winning two on aggregate points.
Kamryn Kendall and Kate Masberg each had six service aces for the day, while Paige Pittmann added five. Masberg had a team-high 26 kills and was followed by Kendall (19) and RaeAhna Harmon (18).
The sixth-ranked Bucs (15-1) move on to Gold Pool play with No. 4 Mayer Lutheran and No. 7 Wabasha-Kellogg, playing at 11 a.m. against W-K and at noon against Mayer Lutheran.
Bucs volleyball takes second place in Class A Showcase
After going 3-0 Friday at the Class A Showcase at the Midwest Volleyball Warehouse in Burnsville, the Waterville-Elysian-Morristown Buccaneers saw a major uptick in competition level Saturday.
The Bucs played three teams ranked in the top six in Class A, winning once and losing twice — the second being in the championship match — to take second place in the tournament.
“This tournament was a great experience for our girls,” said head coach Crystal Lamont. “We played some of the best teams in the state and proved we belonged with them. You couldn’t take any points off or your competition would make you pay.”
The Bucs’ first match was against the No. 6 team in the state, Wabasha-Kellogg. It was all WEM, as the Bucs dominated the first set, winning 25-9 and took the second set 25-18 to win the first pool match.
WEM’s next opponent was No. 3 Mayer Lutheran. After dropping the first set 19-25, the Bucs came back to win the second set 25-23. ML came out strong in the third set, and WEM lost 10-15 to fall to 1-1.
Because W-K defeated ML in two sets, all three teams were 1-1 in match play. That allowed WEM to win the pool because of set winning percentage and meant the Bucs would advance to the championship match.
In the championship, WEM took on the No. 2 team in the state, Tracy-Milroy-Balaton and put up a great fight before losing 20-25, 22-25.
Kate Masberg and RaeAhna Harmon were named to the Class A Showcase All-Tournament team for their play throughout the weekend.
The WEM JV went 4-0 at the Lakeville North Tourney to claim the championship! WEM beat Rosemount 2-0, Hopkins 2-0, Wayzata 2-0, and North St. Paul 2-0. WEM JV is 10-0 on the year and haven’t lost a set. Congratulations girls!
