After a slow start, the Huskies rallied to top Racine Case, 19-25, 28-26, 25-18, 25-12, in a WIAA Division 1 regional match on Oct. 18.
"Racine Case started the match with a lot of energy and excitement," head coach Leng Sayaovong said. "It caught us off-guard and the girls were not ready to respond. Towards the end of the second set, we settled down and started to play our game. That momentum carried over to the third and fourth sets, where we just played our style of volleyball."
Caitlin Kantowski racked up 30 assists, Jaime Supple 15 kills and two aces, Rebecca Kuske three blocks and Natalie Carr 11 digs for Hale.
The momentum did not carry over to Saturday's regional title match, which the Huskies lost to Greendale, 25-17, 25-17, 25-20.
Supple totaled 15 digs and nine kills, Kantowski 16 assists, Carr two aces and Rachel Milani five blocks.
That ended the season for Hale, which loses seniors Kantowski, Milani, Kelsey Urbaniak, Miranda Bailey, Jenna Krueger and Marlee Freitag.
Greenfield cross country
Both the boys and girls teams for the Hustlin' Hawks enjoyed their best finishes in WIAA Division 1 sectional action in years at Saturday's meet at Washington Park.
The boys tallied 157 points for sixth place, which head coach Ernie Rosenthal said was the highest sectional team finish for a Greenfield boys team in over 15 seasons.
Tom Friedbacher led the way with 19th place in 17 minutes, 53 seconds. Andy Sabinash ran 25th and Casey Sabinash 26th (both in 18:13), Cody Hagfors 43rd (18:48), Quinton Kufahl 44th (18:48), Dylan Kumbera 56th (19:29) and Matt Clarey 68th (20:15).
The girls scored 221 points for seventh place, also their best sectional finish in years, Rosenthal said.
Megan Theune-Baillargeon was the top runner, taking 29th (17:14). She was followed by Tia Ruhland in 46th (18:27), Audrey Schmidt 47th (18:37), Janie Friedbacher 48th (18:44), Andrea Organ 51st (19:05) and Kelsey Franckowiak 54th (19:22).
Rosenthal said the teams had a good 2012 season, highlighted by Keely Hanley's school record of 15:33.
The Hawks lose only two seniors, Hagfors and Organ, so they should be strong next season.
