Cardinals are heading back to the regional finals

CHEBOYGAN, Mich. — The Onaway Cardinals volleyball team get the sweep as they defeated Pellston in three sets by scores of 25-14, 25-19 and 25-20 in a Division IV regional semifinal match. This was the type of performance that Onaway coach Steve Watson was hoping to see from his team and look to carry that momentum moving forward.

“It’s what we came here to do, said Watson.” “Everybody comes to win and you’ve got to go out (and) show up. I think we played really well tonight.”

The Cardinals finished with 23 aces on the night. Five of those aces came from Breya Domke and she added 14 kills along with her three digs. Malaurie McLean recorded five kills, two aces and four digs; Jackie Sellke had four kills, five aces and four digs and Mallorie Neelis had two kills, 20 assists, two aces and seven digs.

Onaway returns to Cheboygan on Thursday as they take on Rudyard in the Division IV regional finals. First serve is at 6 p.m.
