Cats extend late-season surgeOctober 11, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Jasper and Boonville have taken turns in the past as the heavyweight of the Big Eight Conference. Lately, the favor has tilted in the Wildcats’ direction.
Jasper toppled Boonville for the third straight year Thursday, invading Pioneer Stadium for a 25-17, 25-16, 23-25, 25-19 triumph. Bouncing back after surrendering a tight third set, the Wildcats rattled off their ninth win in their last 10 matches. Jasper (15-12, 3-2) has won five straight overall and is undefeated in October.
Jasper’s Elisabeth Ahlbrand and Tori Sermersheim blitzed the net for 20 kills apiece, with help from Teyah Leinenbach and her 43 assists. Michala Flamion and Mariah Moeller patrolled the court for 23 and 21 digs, respectively. Sermersheim (six blocks) and Emma Stout (four blocks) added a defensive presence, while Moeller laced six aces.
The Wildcats will hit the road Saturday to play in the Columbus East Invitational.
