Marshfield seniors Anna Ripp and Stephanie Rhodes capped off terrific careers by reaching big milestones and being named unanimously to the first team of the All-Wisconsin Valley Conference Volleyball Team for the second-straight year.

Ripp, the Tigers’ setter, became the program’s first player to reach the 2,000 assist mark for her career. Rhodes, an all-around player, led Marshfield in kills and digs, and surpassed 1,000 kills for her varsity career late in the season. Ripp was also named to the Wisconsin Volleyball Coaches Association all-state team as an honorable mention selection for the second year in a row.

“Anna has been a tremendous leader for us this season both on the court and in the weight room,” Marshfield coach Dawn Sadowska said. “Our offense got faster throughout the season and that was due entirely to Anna’s ability to accurately time her sets with all of our hitters.

“Stephanie has been a dependable all-around player for us this season. She was a critical part of both our offense (serve receive to attacking) and our defense (blocking and digging) as her statistics throughout the season prove.”

Conference champion D.C. Everest had three unanimous first-team picks – Regan Stefan, Natalie Mohring, and Jenna Rombalski. Merrill’s Morgan Wardall also was a unanimous first-team pick. Ally Miklesh of Stevens Point and Katie Zelinski of Merrill round out the eight-person first team.

Seniors Alexa Aumann, a hitter, and Maureen Cassidy, the team’s libero, were among the seven second-team selections for Marshfield, which finished 7-5 and in third place in the WVC standings.

“Alexa came into her own this season, showing everyone her versatility as we ran her both as an outside hitter and a middle hitter,” Sadowska said. “She was a force in both positions and was able to attack a number of different sets. Mo (Cassidy) has been a defensive player since she was a sophomore, but became our libero this season. Specifically, Mo’s defense and leadership in the backrow stood out in every match. Mo’s specialty was digging tips that most liberos could not defend.”

Senior middle hitter Jamila Ougayour was Marshfield’s lone honorable mention selection.

STEVENS POINT – The Marshfield volleyball team put together another great season, but the Tigers just couldn’t find a way to get past D.C. Everest.

Everest beat Marshfield 3-0 in a WIAA Division 1 sectional semifinal Thursday at Stevens Point Area Senior High, ending the Tigers’ season for the second year in a row.

The Evergreens defeated Marshfield in last year’s sectional final, and also took care of the Tigers twice during the regular season en route to the Wisconsin Valley Conference title. Everest won the match 25-11, 25-19, 25-18.

Alexa Aumann had eight kills, Anna Ripp had 19 assists and 11 digs, and Maureen Cassidy had 14 digs for the Tigers.

Everest, which advanced to last year’s state tournament, will play a sectional final at Chippewa Falls against either Eau Claire North or River Falls on Saturday night.

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield volleyball team had its backs to the wall and the end of its season was near, but the veteran group of Tigers were not to be denied.

Trailing 2-1, Marshfield rallied to win the final two sets to defeat Eau Claire Memorial in a WIAA Division 1 regional final Saturday night at Marshfield High School.

The Tigers won 25-10, 16-25, 21-25, 25-17, 15-12, to move on to the D-1 sectional semifinal against D.C. Everest on Thursday at 5 p.m. at Stevens Point Area Senior High. The other sectional semifinal will follow with Eau Claire North playing River Falls. The two semifinal winners will play in a sectional final at Chippewa Falls on Oct. 29.

“A lot of it was our serve receive and we knew we could do it better than that,” Marshfield coach Dawn Sadowska said. “They had to believe they could do it, and talk with one another. Once they started helping each other out, our hitters got things going, and it made things a lot easier for us. They were communicating a lot better and shaking things off.”

Anna Ripp served 10 points in a row as the Tigers pulled away to win the first set, but the momentum was short-lived.

Marshfield struggled with its serve receive in Game 2 and never got on track. Memorial built a 9-4 lead, and after the Tigers closed to within 12-11 after two kills by Alexa Aumann, Memorial ripped off 13 of the final 18 points to even the match.

The Tigers’ struggles continued in Game 3 as Emma Fentress served eight points in a row to give Memorial an 18-5 advantage, on its way to the 13-point win.

Marshfield had to make adjustments to Memorial’s blocking game, which was holding the Tigers at bay on the front line.

“I definitely had to change up (setting) the hitters because they know that Rhodes and Alexa are definitely our top two,” Ripp said. “As long as we use all three hitters, we were able to move things around.”

The Tigers responded in the fourth set. Two kills by Aaumann got the ball rolling, putting Marshfield up 11-8. After Memorial closed to within two, Stephanie Rhodes had a block kill and an ace to spark a 10-5 run to close out the game and force a do-or-die fifth set.

Memorial led 11-10 in the fifth, and after a timeout, the Tigers came out determined. Ripp set up Aumann for a kill to tie it, then followed with an ace. After a sideout, Aumann, Jamila Ougayour and Rhodes had kills to end it.

Ripp finished with 41 assists, Aumann had 20 kills, Rhodes had 22 digs and 11 kills, and Maureen Cassidy had 32 digs for the Tigers.

Marshfield will face Wisconsin Valley Conference champion D.C. Everest in the sectional semifinals. Everest beat the Tigers in the sectional final a year and twice during the regular season this fall. Sadowska said the Tigers are playing much better in the past few weeks and hopes they have a chance to pull off the upset.

“We need to not give them as many free balls as we did last time,” Sadowska said. “We struggled a little bit with serve receive, but I think in the last week and a half, or two weeks, we’ve done a good job of speeding up our offense, so that will help us. Our serving seems to be aggressive again. We have to go after them.”

MARSHFIELD – With matches looming against the top two teams in the Wisconsin Valley Conference on Saturday, the Marshfield volleyball team wanted to make sure it took care of the business at hand.

The Tigers started all three games strong and went on to beat Wisconsin Rapids 25-14, 25-11, 25-10, in a WVC match Thursday night at Marshfield High School.

Marshfield is now 5-3 heading into the second conference tournament on Saturday at D.C. Everest. The Tigers will play first-place Everest and second-place Merrill as they look to make a push up the standings with only one week remaining in the regular season.

Marshfield senior Stephanie Rhodes had eight kills in the victory, pushing her career total to 1,001, a milestone that coach Dawn Sadowska said was well-earned.

“She’s been on varsity since she was a freshman and year after year, she’s been getting better,” Sadowska said. “We’ve asked more and more of her. She’s such a versatile hitter, and this year her blocking has been better than it ever has been for us.”

Anna Ripp, who passed the 2,000-assist mark in her career last week, started the first game by serving six points in a row, three were aces, to push Marshfield out to a quick 7-1 lead.

The Tigers finished just as strong, scoring the final eight points of the set, the final point coming on a Jamila Ougayour kill.

Ripp had two aces to help Marshfield build a 5-0 lead to start Game 2, and served eight-straight points to begin the third set as the Tigers ran out to a 9-0 advantage. Marshfield was never challenged in either game.

Ripp finished with 28 assists and six service aces, Alexa Aumann had a team-high 11 kills, and Maureen Cassidy had 15 digs to top Marshfield. The Tigers finished with 11 service aces overall.

“Our plan was to serve aggressive and we’ve been working on trying to run things faster,” Sadowska said. “I said every free ball we have to go quick, because that’s our plan for this weekend, and they did a really good job of that.”

This will definitely prepare us for the second Valley tournament next weekend.”
