Fulton split all three of its matches in pool play to advance to the semifinals and nearly made it to the championship, losing a close final match against Coal City in the semifinals. The Steamers won the first game 25-19 and lost the second 25-16 before the Coalers pulled out a 25-23 win in Game 3.

The Steamers also jumped in front of Ottawa in the third-place match with a 25-19 win in the first set before Ottawa came back to win the next two 27-25 and 25-10.

Besty Leonard was the leader in kills (39), blocks (15) and ace serves (12) for the Steamers, while Rachael Beiermann had 31 kills and one more assist than Olivia Edfors (55-54). Averi Leitzen was the team leader with 66 digs.

The Steamers honor their seniors Tuesday in the Senior Night match against Prophetstown at Fulton’s Stan Borgman Court in the school’s east gym.

SHERRARD, Ill. — Prophetstown went 4-0 in pool play and finished second Saturday at the Sherrard tournament, losing 25-9, 25-16 to Prairie Central in the championship match.
