Senior middle hitter Gebrel Miller had six kills as the Horlick High School boys volleyball team routed South Milwaukee 25-12, 25-6, 25-15 Friday night in a WIAA regional final at Horlick.
“It’s nice to get off to a good start in the playoffs,” Rebels coach Kevin Mielcarek said.
The Rebels (33-7) also got 15 assists from senior setter Jake Romano and five kills from junior outside hitter Luciano Trevino.
Horlick will host No. 3 seed Muskego in a sectional semifinal at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
BURLINGTON 3, WILMOT 0: Smoothing out the wrinkles on its serve as the match went along, the Demons swept Wilmot 25-22, 25-10, 25-15 in a WIAA regional at Burlington. Burlington beat the Panthers for the second time in eight days.
Wilmot kept the opening game close as Burlington had difficulty serving and receiving serve, Demons coach Kayla Uhlenhake said. The Demons picked up their play in the next two games behind Eli Miller and Josh Ketterhagen’s strong service runs.
Ketterhagen had 12 kills and six aces, while Miller finished with six digs. Jacob Drettwan had 20 assists and four solo blocks.
The Demons will host Westosha Central in a sectional semifinal at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
FRANKLIN 3, CASE 0: Outgunned by Franklin’s attack, the Eagles ended their season with a 25-18, 25-20, 25-20 road loss Friday night in a WIAA regional final.
Coach Dan Burch said the Eagles installed some new wrinkles in preparation for the match, but they ultimately lacked the Sabers’ experience and offensive firepower. Case finished 7-15.
Sophomore outside hitter Armon Contreras had an efficient night with seven kills on 10 attempts. Senior setter Sam Orno pitched in 19 assists.
“We’re going to have a huge set of juniors returning as seniors,” he said. “We knew it was probably going to be a two-year process.”
MUSKEGO 3, PARK 0: The Panthers weren’t at their best and had their season end in a WIAA regional final at Muskego, losing 25-11, 25-15, 25-18.
Ryan Sheen had nine kills, Kaleb Chapell had four kills and Michael Molbeck had 16 assists for Park (7-14-3), but the Panthers weren’t able to get anything going.
“We didn’t play our best and Muskego is solid and that’s not a good mix,” Park coach Pete Leslie said.
WESTOSHA CENTRAL 3, ST. CATHERINE’S/RACINE LUTHERAN 0: The Angels’ season came to an end after a 25-12, 25-15, 25-18 loss to Westosha Central in a WIAA regional match at Paddock Lake.
The No. 6-seeded Angels (9-20) had good defensive performances from Jack Cafferty and Luke Delsman, who had six digs each. Cafferty also led the team with four kills. T.J. Brehm had four assists.
“Westosha was definitely the better team tonight and when we found an answer, they were able to adjust,” Angels coach Katie Belongia said. “They seemed to get a hand on everything that came over the net; they’re just a scrappy team.”
