Muskego makes annual state pilgrimage

Oct. 28, 2012 7:50 a.m. | Gutty Greenfield made things difficult, but in the end, the Muskego girls volleyball team earned a return trip to next week’s WIAA Division 1 state tournament.

The Warriors downed the tenacious Hustlin’ Hawks, 25-23, 25-11, 25-22, in a sectional championship match before a large crowd at Greenfield High School on Saturday night.

The victory sent Muskego back to the state tourney at the Resch Center in Green Bay beginning Thursday, Nov. 1. The Warriors will meet Merrill at 4:30 p.m. in a quarterfinal matchup. Other first-round contests have Neenah vs. Divine Savior Holy Angels, Sun Prairie vs. Menomonee Falls and DePere vs. Burlington, the defending champion.

Muskego is quite familiar with the road to state. This is the 12th trip in school history, the ninth under head coach Karen Anderson and the fifth straight.

The Warriors won state crowns in 2005 and 2009, and they lost in the quarterfinals last season to eventual runnerup Fond du Lac.
