Indians, Schnoor making a case

CAMANCHE — Earlier in the day, state rankings placed Camanche 13th in Class 3A. Thursday night, the Indians affirmed their place among Iowa’s top teams with another conference victory, this time a sweep over Monticello. Camanche improved to 12-3 and 4-0 in the new River Valley Conference.

On top of it all, outside Libby Schnoor’s 22 kills made her the top hitter in Iowa Class 3A and third statewide with 200 kills. She needs just 17 more to equal her kill total from all of last year, and the Indians still have three tournaments and four regular-season matches to play.

Camanche coach Josh Davis said Thursday was a “grind-it-out match.” The Indians won 25-15, 25-19, 25-18, despite several Panthers attempts to catch Camanche off guard.

“She still put down 22,” Davis said of Schnoor. “We had some balls come over at weird times. It was nice to see that our defense could still pick them up and get (setter) Kylie (Vogel) in system.

“We were unknown going into the season,” he added. “I don’t know if we’re the 13th-best team, but we’ve knocked off who we’re supposed to knock off, and I think it’s great for the parents and players. It may just be a case of the seniors wanting to go out on top.”

Alongside Schnoor, Julia Moore posted 10 kills on 15 attempts for a .600 kill percentage. Moore also came up big defensively with four blocks, and Brettan Hilgendorf tallied eight kills and led the team with seven digs.

“It’s one of her best games,” Davis said of Moore. “I thought she had some good swings on the ball. A good night for Julia for sure.”

Vogel had 35 assists and was perfect from the service line with two aces. Davis said a good test for Camanche would come Saturday when the Indians travel to Lisbon for the Lions Invitational tournament.
