Season ends for Woodlawn

LEBANON — Woodlawn’s volleyball team struggled to contain the offensive power of St. Elmo’s Savannah Feezel in Tuesday’s two-set sectional semifinal loss.

St. Elmo won the match 25-14, 25-13.

“We were on our heels all night,” Woodlawn coach Sara Lamczyk said. “That’s all that we were on.

“Things that we talked about and worked on in practice, we did none of it.”

Woodlawn wiped out an early deficit in the first set. St. Elmo took a 5-1 lead before the Lady Cardinals took advantage of several hitting errors.

Feezel gave her team a 7-3 edge with a kill, but four straight errors allowed the Lady Cardinals to tie the set. Annie Wehrheim gave Woodlawn its first lead since the opening point with a block. Wehrheim led the Lady Cardinals with five kills. The Lady Cardinals never lead again in the match.

The two teams traded points before St. Elmo’s Megan Maxey gave the Eagles a 10-9 edge. St. Elmo scored the next five points to grab control and a 15-9 lead. Feezel finished the set with a kill and a pair of aces.

“I felt like we had intensity the whole game — it was just nothing was rolling for us, nothing was happening for us tonight at all,” Lamczyk said.

Feezel continued to hurt the Lady Cardinals in the second set. She had back-to-back kills to put St. Elmo up 3-1. Then she sandwiched three kills and an ace around a Wehrheim kill to keep St. Elmo up 8-6.

“(Feezel) did an amazing job,” St. Elmo coach Elise Asher said. “Our passers did a fantastic job, and the kids came to win tonight. They didn’t just come to play well. They came to win.”

Again, St. Elmo took over in the middle of the set. Woodlawn was down just two points when the Eagles ripped off a run that push the advantage to 18-10. The match ended when Sabrina Durham sent a shot long.

Woodlawn finished the season 19-9. St. Elmo improved to 28-9 and faces Lebanon in Thursday’s sectional final.
