Woodlawn hammers North Clay

French, Wehrheim pace offense

WOODLAWN —

Once the Lady Cardinals volleyball team got momentum there was no stopping them Tuesday night against North Clay.

Woodlawn turned a close opening game into a two-game rout, winning 25-19, 25-12.

I felt like the first game was back and forth a little bit,” Woodlawn coach Sara Lamczyk said. “I was a little nervous. They were making me a little nervous.”

The lead swung back and forth throughout the opening game until Woodlawn roared to the finish. With the game tied at 19, Woodlawn ripped off the final six points. The team finished off the night, cruising to a second game blowout.

The second game we didn't have any missed serves, and we pretty much kept the ball in play and forced them to make the mistakes a little more,” Lamczyk said.

In the opener, Regan Witzel put Woodlawn ahead for good at 20-19 with a kill. Bock took the ball and served a pair of aces to help Woodlawn during the final stretch. The game ended after consecutive errors from North Clay.

Ryann French led Woodlawn with nine kills. Annie Wehrheim added seven, and Hannah Bock finished with four.

I feel like (French and Wehrheim) split the duties pretty well,” Lamczyk said. “You have two big middles. That's really nice.

Hannah Bock, I feel like she is such a smart player. She's one of the smartest players out on the floor.”

Katie Garren's serving provided a critical lift for Woodlawn in the second game. She took the ball with her team trailing 4-2. Woodlawn rattled off the next 10 points to seize an 11-4 edge. Garren had four aces during the run and finished the match with six.

She's just such a hard worker,” Lamczyk said. “She's earned that spot, and she works her tail off for it every day.”

Woodlawn never lost the lead again in the second game, and the advantage raced past double digits when Wehrheim added an ace to push the Lady Cardinals ahead 17-6.

Woodlawn is 13-6 this season and competes in the Midland Trail Conference Tournament starting Thursday.
