Rugby Volleyball team takes second at districts

By Staff | Nov 5, 2010

The Rugby Girls Volleyball Team took second place at the District Tournament held at Rugby October 29 -November 1. Bottineau beat Rugby in the Championship game 3-0 taking first place in Districts.

“We couldn’t get our momentum going on Monday night,” said Coach Jessica Fritz.

Yet, she is still proud of her team. It has been quite awhile since Rugby played in a District Championship; since the 1996-1997 school year, in fact, according to Fritz.

Crystal Hovland and Kenzie Cameron received All-District honors at the tournament.

In addition to those two girls, all the girls played a good solid game but two others stood out during district play, according to their coach. Tessa Koenig had tournament stats of 21 kills, and 19 aces while Molly Koenig had 13 kills and 3 digs to add to the team effort.

“When they play well, they are one of the toughest teams I’ve seen all year,” said Fritz of her team.

She is happy that they get to play in regional competition. Kenmare is the region favorite to win. Our Redeemer’s, Minot, is another tough team and Fritz suspects that Rugby will be playing Our Redeemer’s first, although she didn’t have the placings yet.

Throughout the year, the team has been playing inconsistently, but Fritz has said if they all pull together and do what they are supposed to do, anything could happen. At present all the girls are healthy and have no injuries.

The Rugby team has eight seniors playing this year. Next year, it will be a younger, less-experienced team.

However, Fritz said that a few of the younger girls have sat on the bench during games and are learning as they watch. With several sets of sisters on the team, it will be time for the younger sister to step up.
