E-M VB Falls In Opening Round

Exeter-Milligan did a very not Exeter-Milligan type thing this year in Lincoln.  The No. 5 seed Timberwolves were upended in the opening-round of the 2018 NSAA Class D-2 State Volleyball Championships. E-M fell to 25-5 Wynot 25-22, 18-25, 26-24, 25-22 on Thursday afternoon at Lincoln Southeast High School.  E-M, winners of five State championships in the last decade, ended its season at 23-9.
The Timberwolves were in command of the first set on November 8 and looked to move ahead the Blue Devils 1-0.  Instead, E-M errors and sloppy play allowed Wynot to capture the opening set and gain crucial momentum.  The defending Class D-2 State champions battled back to take the second set but could not mount enough of a consistent offense to win another set.
Katherine White and Kate Jansky both drilled 14 kills.  Cammie Harrison added four terminations and Cameran Jansky had two.  Jaiden Papik ripped six ace serves and White had five.  Daisy Kanode fired four ace serves in and Anna Sluka had three.  K. Jansky had a pair of ace serves.  Sluka posted 18 sets and Emma Olsen had 14 assists.
Papik came up with 22 digs and White had 21.  K. Jansky had 15 digs and Olsen had a dozen.  Sluka posted seven digs and Harrison had six.  K. Jansky had a hand in on seven blocks and White was in on three.  C. Jansky and Olsen each had two blocks.
Thursday was the last game for White and Jansky—the pair contributed nearly 75 percent of the Timberwolf offense this season.  White, who thumped 428 kills this year, will go on next season to play volleyball for Missouri Western State. Jansky ends her stellar senior campaign with 322 kills.  White and Jansky were also dominant at the service line this year, as well as being defensive stalwarts.
Wynot were the D-2 State runners-up in 2016 and the Blue Devils were on a 14-straight win streak coming into Lincoln. Wynot was downed by eventual State runner-up Ewing in the semi-finals on Friday.
