NIAGARA, Wis. — It was Senior Night for the Niagara girls volleyball team Tuesday night, and they defeated Marinette-Oconto Conference foe Coleman 3-0(25-17,25-18,25-20) to remain undefeated.

“Tonight’s game started off slow and we didn’t play to our potential. Coleman was an aggressive team and had some really nice defensive saves,” said Lady Badgers head coach Carol St. Arnauld. “The girls rallied towards the end of the first game and stayed in control for the next two sets.”

“It’s good to win every night but especially sweet on Senior Night. We have a special team that is a good blend of sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Each player on the team represented their home court well,” St. Arnauld said.

Alyssa Cretton led the team with 14 kills and Bailey Pearson was right behind her with 13. Sophomore Morgan Borchardt ran the offense well with 30 assists while the Badgers’ other sophomore, Abby Wells, led the team in service aces with 3.

The Badgers seniors are Cretton, Julia Brown, Haley Allred and Emmah Maki.

Niagara’s match versus Lena on Thursday has been postponed, with a make-up date to be determined. They return to action Tuesday when they travel to M&O foe Wausaukee.
