Abby Ongna had 30 kills and 14 digs, Casey Frankland added 19 kills and 10 digs, Elise Uphoff had a team-high 37 digs, and setter Reinya Balderson had 57 assists for Marshfield.
“This was a great tournament to start our season with as we were able to compete with other teams in our sectional,” Marshfield coach Dawn Sadowska said. “I feel our match against Chippewa Falls was the match we learned the most about ourselves. We now have two days to get into the gym and try to make some adjustments before we head to the very competitive Sun Prairie tournament.”
