AUBURNDALE VOLLEYBALL SWEEPS MARAWOOD SOUTH DOUBLEHEADER
The Auburndale volleyball team had an odd doubleheader on Saturday, adding to the odd season it has been.
The Eagles traveled to Wisconsin Rapids Assumption for a 10 a.m. match, then returned home and took on Wausau Newman Catholic at 3 p.m. Didn’t matter much to Auburndale, however, as it swept both matches 3-0 to remain undefeated in the Marawood Conference South Division this season.
Auburndale beat Assumption 25-17-25-21, 25-10, and Newman 25-12, 25-23, 25-20, to move its record to 4-0 in the Marawood South.
The pair of victories sets up a battle with Stratford, also 4-0, for the Marawood South title on Monday at Stratford High School at 7 p.m.
Against Assumption, Georgi Schmutzer had eight kills, seven digs and 19 assists, and Josie Ertl and Kaitlyn Kundinger each had six kills for the Eagles. Maddie Krings added a team-high nine digs in the win.
In the victory over Newman Catholic, Ertl had nine kills, Schmutzer had 22 assists, and Krings had 25 digs.
