Warriors trip Irish in 5

CLINTON — Calamus-Wheatland bounced back from an 0-2 deficit to Prince of Peace to sweep the next three sets, stealing a tight one from the Irish 20-25, 19-25, 25-22, 25-14, 15-8 on Thursday at Central Catholic Auditorium. The Warriors did it behind a slew of tough serving; Stephanie Petersen and Katie Banowetz each had six aces, Sydney Kerr and McKenna Luepker had four apiece, and Cal-Wheat compiled 24 aces as a team.

The Irish’s Sydney Laufenberg posted nine kills, her second-highest total of the season, in spite of the loss. Prince of Peace fell to 1-9, while the Warriors improved to 4-4.

Defensively, Hunter Chapman posted a season-high 35 digs as the Prince of Peace libero. From the service line, Erin Kuehn was 21 of 23 with five aces, leading the team.

Luepker was the big hitter for Cal-Wheat with 13 kills. Kerr led all players with 22 assists.

The Irish travel to Wyoming for a Tri-Rivers Conference match against Midland on Tuesday for their next contest. Meanwhile, the Warriors will play Saturday at the Lisbon Invitational tournament.
