L-N Raider Volleyball season ends with 17-15 record


November 11, 2021

The 2021 High School Volleyball season is now safely in the record books with the State Tournament just completed. L-N ended the season in the District Finals with a won-loss record of 17-15.

This year the Lady Raiders were led by four seniors, a couple of juniors, a lone sophomores and a couple of freshmen. They met the usual array of higher Class teams, in fact, 20 of the 32 games were against Class D-1 or C-2 teams. L-N did well against the D-2 teams but could not be consistent against all of the larger Class team. Six of the opponents ended up in the State Tournament.

With the senior class graduations, the team will see a lot of the offensive power also leave, but enough underclassmen earned a lot of experience this year that the next year’s team could pick up easily where this year left off.

The girls played a total of 89 Sets throughout the season with five girls playing in all 89. The season statistics are as follows:

Kills – Aces – Digs: Sydney Biltoft 98-0-36; Aleah Heikkinen 171-30-248; Emma Epley 281-53-233; Elsa Jorgensen 6-37-348; Katelyn Mazour 58-29-227; Emily Troudt 25-7-28; Hanna Skinner 4-28-187; Kylie Beard 54-13-66; Kara Menke 143-3-78.
