Woodlawn opens sectional play

WOODLAWN — Two years ago the volleyball sectional went by in a whirlwind for Sara Lamczyk and her Lady Cardinals.

Edwards County cruised past Woodlawn in two sets on its way to the 1A super sectional. This season Woodlawn is hoping for a longer stay after winning the regional title against Centralia Christ Our Rock.

“It just felt like it just blew through really fast,” Lamczyk said. “Now this time it just seems different to me.

“I feel like we have a really good shot against St. Elmo. I felt like it was a really big game playing Christ Our Rock, and we got through that.”

Tonight, Woodlawn faces St. Elmo (29-7) in the sectional semifinal in Lebanon. St. Elmo’s offense is built around a pair of senior middle hitters. Savannah Feezel leads the team with three kills per set. Katie Stites, who is 5-11, adds nearly two kills per set.

“I think no matter what we do they’re going to adjust, and we’re going to have to keep trying to battle back on them,” Lamczyk said.

At the net, Annie Wehrheim and Sabrina Durham lead the Lady Cardinals with help from outside hitters Ryann French and Carly Ethridge. Wehrheim and Durham paced the Lady Cardinals with 10 kills each in the final, and French added six.

“(Annie) can really put the ball down hard, but then I do have Sabrina,” Lamczyk said. “She’s amazing. She gets up with the ball. It’s very hard to block Sabrina.

“We can go to Ryann French. She usually can tip. She can hit. She can find a hole, and Carly Ethridge can hit line. She can hit a lot of different places.”

Lamczyk added she was pleased with the effort of her back row digging and passing the ball to setters Kelsea Bock and Regan Witzel.

Woodlawn is 19-8 this season, and tonight’s game starts at about 7 p.m.
