WAUSAU – Top-seed and Marawood Conference South Division champion Wausau Newman Catholic proved to be too tough for Marshfield Columbus Catholic as the Dons lost 3-0 in a WIAA Division 4 regional final on Saturday night at Newman Catholic High School.
The Cardinals won 25-10, 25-22, 25-12, to move on to the sectional semifinals, where they will face Wisconsin Rapids Assumption on Thursday.
“We were still missing our setter (Jen Reigel) tonight, but our girls gave it their all against a very good team,” Columbus Catholic coach Kate Egle said.
Kendra Baierl had nine kills, Abby Baierl had 12 digs, and Natalie Pospyhalla had 19 assists to lead the Dons.
