REEDSBURG — The Spencer volleyball team came up a couple of points short of the title at the Reedsburg Invitational on Saturday at Reedsburg High School, placing second with a 5-1 record.
The Rockets defeated LaFarge 2-0 (25-15, 25-17), Oregon 2-1 (25-21, 19-25, 16-14), Adams-Friendship 2-0 (25-14, 25-16), Sparta 2-1 (25-19, 19-25, 15-10), and Oregon again 2-0 (25-22, 25-12) in the semifinals before losing to Fort Atkinson in the championship match 2-1 (19-25, 25-20, 16-14).
Spencer is now 23-5 overall this season.
Macie Weber had 62 kills, 20 blocks, and nine aces to lead the Rockets in all three categories.
Sadie Mercier had 131 assists, Jenna Rogers had 64 digs and seven aces, Liz Endreas added 30 kills, Jenna Schober had 29 kills, and Sydney Kind had seven aces and 10 blocks for Spencer.
“We fought hard through a long, tough day and came up two points short of a title to a solid Fort Atkinson team,” Spencer coach Buff Heller said. “Everyone pitched in, and we had a great tournament versus some topnotch competition.”
Spencer will look to wrap up an undefeated Cloverbelt Conference East Division season and its fifth-straight conference title at Greenwood on Tuesday.
