Marquette wins

MILES — Marquette Catholic prevailed over Easton Valley in Tri-Rivers Conference volleyball Tuesday, getting heavy doses of offense from Blake Banowetz and Haley Lampe and racking up 67 digs on the night, more than triple the team’s kill total.

Banowetz led the Mohawks with 16 kills on 35 attempts, followed by Lampe’s 10. Bonowetz also led with 17 digs, followed by 14 from Anna Ambrosy, 13 from Tayler Richman and 11 from Justine Kalmes. The scrappy play led to a 30-assist performance from Kalmes.

After close battles in Sets 1 and 2, the Mohawks blew out the River Hawks by 13 in Set 3 and rode that momentum to the four-set clincher. Marquette took down Easton Valley 22-25, 25-23, 25-12, 25-19.

Warriors fall in four

CALAMUS — Calamus-Wheatland roared back from a 1-0 deficit to take Set 2 25-23, but it was the last time the Warriors tasted victory Tuesday. Midland took the four-set victory 25-17, 23-25, 25-13, 25-20.

Cal-Wheat had nearly triple the amount of digs (57) as they had kills (20). Katie Banowetz and Stephanie Petersen led the team with seven kills apiece. Tessa Kauffmann had 13 digs and Sydney Kerr had 16 assists.

The loss overshadowed a solid blocking performance for the Warriors: Rebecca Vander Heiden had four total blocks, followed by Nina Cray and Petersen, who both had three apiece.

Maquoketa tumbles

EPWORTH — A tight, four-setter fell the way of Western Dubuque on Tuesday. Maquoketa jumped to a one-set lead after a 26-24 nail-biter win, but Western Dubuque rallied to take three straight. The Bobcats won Sets 2, 3 and 4 25-21, 25-19, 25-21.

Sabers swept

MOUNT VERNON — Central DeWitt had a tough task ahead of it when traveling to face No. 9-ranked Mount Vernon on Tuesday. In spite of a close third set, the Sabers were swept 25-17, 25-13, 25-21.

Leaders for the Mustangs were Morgan Melchert, Wynne Vandersall and Hannah Whitley — each with seven kills — and Libby Ryan with 10 digs. Melchert also racked up 32 assists.
