Cadillac tops Alpena in close sets

Cadillac tops Alpena 3-0. (October 10, 2018)


Alpena (October 10, 2018) — The Alpena Wildcats hosted the Cadillac Vikings for senior night. The green and white have six seniors on the roster: Alexis Pilarski, Allison Precord, Adrianna Gumtow, Rachel McDonald, Jessica Leeck and Jaime Modrzynski.

The Wildcats struggled on defense in the first set, having a tough time with tips and roll shots at the 10-foot line, losing set one 25-10. The girls fought back in sets two and three losing 25-23 and 26-24. The last two sets were close, and despite the lack of kills, Head Coach Kolby Andrews was pleased with the Wildcats’ determination.

“We have not dropped very many sets by big margins,” said Andrews. “These are against great teams. Cadillac is tied for the top of our conference right now and we were within two points there showing that we can beat them. We went five sets with them last time at their place. Again these girls fight, they fight hard and nobody gets a free pass when they play against us.”

The Wildcats lost to Cadillac 3-0. The green and white are now (2-7) in the Big North Conference.
