PHS volleyball team wins six out of seven matches, golf team concludes regular season

The Prescott High School volleyball team has won six out of its last seven matches over the past week to improve to 27-5 overall.

PHS downed Somerset last Thursday 3-2 in Somerset. The Cardinals overcame a slow start in their MBC opener, losing the first game 14-25 before coming back to win 25-21, 25-27, 25-13 and 18-16. Prescott saved enough energy from an easy Game 4 win to pull out a close Game 5 against the Spartans.

"The girls start off really slow but then pulled it together for a win," PHS head coach Patti Tulip said.

Bekah Miller and Lily Weiser both had three aces for the Cardinals. Weiser had 20 kills while Gabby Janovec and Miller both had 14 kills. Alexis Maxwell finished with 24 assists and Maggie Langer had 17. Miller had 14 blocks and Savana Stuhl made 42 digs.

Prescott followed up their win over Somerset going 4-1 in the River Falls Invitational Saturday and finishing second. PHS only lost to River Falls but beat Menomonie, Columbia Heights, Minn., Barron and Turtle Lake    Weiser had 32 kills on the day, Bekah Miller had 26 kills, Katie Miller had 18 kills, and Janovec had 15 kills and eight aces and served the most for us with no errors. Bekah Miller had 14 block kills, Katie Miller had seven and Kellie Maier had six. Maxwell had 49 assists.

"We played a very strong tournament and even though we lost to River Falls the length of most of the rallies was amazing.  It definitely was a fun game to watch.  Hopefully the loss teaches our players what they need to do extra to pull through a game and finish it." Tulip said.

PHS went to 2-0 in the conference after defeating New Richmond Tuesday evening by a 3-0 margin in New Richmond. Game scores were 25-18, 28-26 and 25-16.

The Cardinal hosts Osceola Thursday beginning at 7 p.m.

The Prescott High girls' golf team concludes its regular season with a pair of MBC meets. At Osceola Monday the Cards' shot a season best 213 and finished a season best third while at Somerset Tuesday the team finished seventh with a score of 256.

Prescott is currently in sixth place in the team standings with 39 points. New Richmond leads with 80 points and Osceola is second with 73 going into the full conference meet Thursday in Hammond at Pheasant Hills Golf Course. The meet begins at 9 a.m. The WIAA Division 2 regional meet in Luck is next Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
