Another Win Playing in the Pierce County Tournament

by Jana Stone


Pierce hosted the final Pierce County Tournament Thursday, October 14. The four teams in Pierce County, the Pierce Lady Jays, the Plainview Pirates, the Osmond Tigers, and the Randolph Cardinals, played in the tournament. For all games, the teams played two out of three sets to make the games shorter.

The Pierce Lady Jays played the Plainview Pirates for their first game in the tournament. Pierce won in two sets. The first set was a good set played by Pierce with an ending score of 25-12. The second set was closer but the Lady Jays kept on fighting and won by six. The game ended with a score of 25-19. 

The Lady Jays had a total of 17 kills in the Plainview game. Kennedy Warneke had nine kills, Jaya Wachholtz collected four, Elly Piper had two, and Jozy Piper and Morgan Moeller had one each. Pierce also had 11 ace serves. Four from Larissa Meier, Warneke retained three, Moeller collected two, and Raegan Theisen along with Maggie Painter each had one ace serve.

J. Piper says, “We came out strong. The two wins before conference put us in the right mindset for conference.”

Since the Lady Jays won the first game of the night they got to watch the second and third games of the night. The last game of the night was the Pierce Lady Jays against Osmond Tigers competing for the championship.

Head coach Zach Weber says, “It was a good day for us. We needed an opportunity to put the pieces of our team back together after a tough loss on Tuesday. I’m happy with our performance.” 

The Pierce Lady Jays were ready to fight for another win after warming up. The first set was a good fight between both teams but Pierce got the lead and won by seven leaving the score 25-18. In the second game, Osmond put up more of a fight, but Pierce did not let them win. The second and last set of the game was the end and Pierce won 25-19. 

For the Osmond game, Pierce had 22 kills in total. Wachholtz and Warneke both had eight kills and Painter added three. Also, E. Piper, J. Piper, and Brielle Unseld all had one kill. Pierce also had 36 digs. The most digs were made by Moeller with 16. Warneke made seven digs, and both Painter and Meier had four each. Unseld and Wachholtz collected two each and Theisen had one.

The Lady Jays play in the Mid-State conference tournament this week.
