  • Lourdes returned from its MUDECAS conference volleyball experience less than pleased with the results.
    The Knights had lost matches to Exeter-Milligan and Johnson-Brock.
    Coach Michelle Kreifels said her squad was instantly ready to go back to work.
    “We struggled at MUDECAS,” Kreifels said. “We came back to practice and said that’s not what we wanted.”
    The Knights worked hard and their work paid off on Tuesday with a three-set sweep of rival Falls City Sacred Heart.
    Now the Knight players are staring at a larger challenge.
    Lourdes will play in a triangular Thursday at Falls City against the host team and the powerful Syracuse-Dunbar-Avoca volleyball squad, which boasts an 11-2 record in Class C1 and a 25-7 mark in terms of total sets played.
    “They are always such a good team,” said Coach Kreifels. “They are a very disciplined team.”
    The Knights will enter the Thursday match with a 5-3 record.
    This is the first of two meetings this season for the Knights and Rockets.
    S-D-A and Lourdes will play in a triangular on Oct. 2 that takes the place of the S-D-A Invite.
    S-D-A Triangular
    The Syracuse-Dunbar Avoca volleyball tourney set for Monday, Oct. 1, will be changed to a triangular for this year due to one of the participating teams dropping out.
    Due to NSAA schedule conflicts, one of the four participating schools needed to drop out leaving only three teams remaining. An extensive search was conducted to find a replacement but came up empty.
    S-D-A officials hope this will be a one-year situation only with a replacement being sought for next year.
    Teams from Milford and Lourdes will play S-D-A in the triangular format with action starting at 5:30 p.m.
