In a strong sign of improvement for the program, the West Allis Hale girls volleyball team downed Brookfield Central 26-24, 13-25, 26-24, 25-21 on Sept. 24.
"This was a very exciting win for the program," head coach Leng Sayaovong said. "The team showed a lot of heart and determination to pull this match victory out.
"Being down in the first and third sets and for the players to find a way to win was amazing to see as a coach. The players never gave up hope and were fighting to the very end of each set."
Rebecca Kuske tallied 11 kills and three blocks on the night, while Jaime Supple posted 17 kills, Cassidy Luttinen 29 assists and Natalie Carr 23 digs as the Huskies improved to 2-2 in Greater Metro Conference dual meets.
"I hope that this win will show the players that they can win and compete against anyone," Sayaovong said.
Hale put that statement to the test over the weekend when it competed in the prestigious West Bend Sprawl, which features some of the elite teams in the state.
The Huskies wound up 22nd in the tournament. Their lone victory came over Oshkosh West by a 25-22, 30-28 count.
They fell to East Troy, the eventual tournament champion, as well as Pius XI, Oostburg, Nicolet, Watertown and West Bend West.
Jaime Supple totaled 36 kills and 47 digs for the tournament. Kuske had 24 kills and 17 blocks and Luttinen 79 assists.
