Battlers Sweep Tigers in Little Eight Conference Match

By Craig Olson - Rothsay, MN

The Battle Lake volleyball team defeated the Rothsay Tigers Thursday night 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-14). 

“This was a great match of volleyball with both teams playing very well,” said Battle Lake Head Coach Jenny Roisum.  “The Battlers played their cleanest match of the year tonight.  We hit .323 as a team and served at 93% with 6 aces.  Besides a great volleyball match, it was Block for Cancer night.  Thank you to the Rothsay volleyball program for a wonderful fundraiser and allowing the Battlers to be a part of this special night.” 

Stacy Christensen was 15/15 serving with 2 blocks and 11 kills.  Allison Marso had 16 kills and 7 digs.  Hayle Knudson was 16/17 serving with 4 aces and dished out 29 assists.  Megan Blatti had 6 kills and Reice Amundson added 2 blocks.  The Battlers finish the regular season at home next Tuesday against Parkers Prairie.

“Tonight’s game was our annual Blocking Out Cancer night,” said Rothsay Head Coach Heather Reber.  “This year we donated the money raised from selling t-shirt as well as our 50-50 raffle to Kevin Foss and his family.  Kevin is Battle Lake’s junior high volleyball coach, and he is currently battling melanoma.  We were able to raise over $1,000 to help in his fight.  We would like to thank the players, coaches and fans from both teams for their donations. Life is bigger than sports, and tonight was a good reminder. We wish Kevin and his family all the best as they continue this challenging journey.”

Lexie Lankow (10 kills, 9/9 serving with 2 aces) and Kenzie Lankow (10 kills, 10/11 serving) led the Tigers attack. 

“We couldn’t quite get enough blocks or digs to put us over the top, and we missed some serves at key times,” said Reber.  “We’ll try to finish the regular season on a high note next week with two more home games.”
