Luxemburg-Casco captures state volleyball title on 96.7 WBDK

Luxemburg-Casco fought off a furious rally by McFarland in the third set to capture its first-ever state volleyball title at the Resch Center Saturday afternoon.

 

Finding themselves down early in the first set 8-2, Luxemburg-Casco was able to regroup and took control late to win 25-21, capturing seven of the final 10 points.

 

Luxemburg-Casco made McFarland dig out of 13-6  hole, but never let them get within striking distance in the second game, winning 25-17.

 

Championships are not meant to be easy and Luxemburg-Casco found that out in the third game. McFarland got out to a 13-7 lead before head coach Jeff Frey called his first time-out to stem the tide. It worked as Luxemburg-Casco captured five of the next seven points before McFarland showed a burst of its own, forcing Frey to call another timeout. Luxemburg-Casco would score 11 of the final 15 points to clinch the title.

 

Hannah Derenne showed nice touch in many of her team-leading 14 kills while Grace Holschuh added another 11. Bekah Day registered 39 assists in her final match for Luxemburg-Casco while Alli Routhieaux led the team in digs with 13. A relatively even game statisically between the two teams, Luxemburg-Casco outpaced top-seeded McFarland in kills 45-27.

Luxemburg-Casco set for huge following Friday

The Falcons were up 2-1 at halftime and netted the first three goals of the second stanza. The final was 5-2. Cody Arendt in the 13th minute and Matthew Conway in the 73rd minute were the tallies for Luxemburg-Casco in the contest.

L-C Volleyball hosts Freedom

Three Door Peninsula high school volleyball teams are still alive for Saturday night action in the WIAA postseason tournament. The highest seed, and the only home team, is Luxemburg-Casco. The (1) Spartans had a bye in the first round Tuesday. If there was any rust it didn't show against Oconto Falls. L-C won in straight sets Thursday night 25-15, 25-13, 25-14.

 

Saturday, they play (4) Freedom. Both teams are out of the North Eastern Conference so they have played each other this season. L-C took that matchup in Freedom in straight sets.

Once the momentum swung, the Irish rolled in sets three and four.

A look back at Luxemburg-Casco volleyball

The Luxemburg-Casco volleyball team earned a number one seed in the Division 2 State Tournament this season and the success of the program can be traced back a long way. Colleen Tymus took over the program as head coach back in 1979 and was the longest-tenured (so far) coach in the Spartans volleyball history. She coached for 17 years and her run came to an end after the 1995 season. L-C won five regional championships under Tymus.

 

Tymus was the correct answer to Thursday's trivia question. Congratulations to Dawn Hanson for answering the question correctly. Dawn will win a $25 certificate to The Rendezvous in Luxemburg.

Saldana gets another hat-trick in regional semi-final

Spartans post-season hopes dashed with 30-22 loss to Wrightstown on WBDK

Luxemburg-Casco fought hard but came up short Friday night with a 30-22 loss to the Wrightstown Tigers in a North Eastern Conference regular-season finale. 

 

The Spartans fell behind early as Wrightstown scored on their first three offensive drives.  Tailing 14-0 after one quarter, the Spartans were able to get on the board with 11:17 left in the second quarter on a one-yard run by running back Reece Worachek. 

 

Wrightstown led 21-7 at halftime before Spartan quarterback Matt Cravillion scored from 3 yards out to close the gap to 21-14. 

 

 

The Tigers scored twice to take a 30-14 lead early in the fourth quarter before the Spartans made a late rally with a 12 yard run from Worachek to get within eight points but could not capitalize on two Wrightstown fumbles in the final five minutes.  The Spartans were denied with 36 seconds left on fourth and goal from the one-yard line when Worachek slipped after the hand-off and was stopped short of the goal line.

 

The Spartans (3-5, 3-6 overall) will now miss the playoffs for the first time in seven years.  Wrightstown (7-1, 7-2 overall) will now wait for the seeding after finishing second in the North Eastern Conference.

Spartans fall to Mustangs 6-0 in OT on WBDK

In a defensive-dominated game, the Luxemburg-Casco Spartans lost in overtime to the Little Chute Mustangs 6-0 at the Luxemburg-Casco Sports Complex.  With less than ideal field conditions, both teams relied heavily on their rushing attacks all evening long.  The Spartans had numerous opportunities in the first half to get on the board, including a missed field goal in the first quarter and quarterback Matt Cravillion was stopped at the one yard line as time expired in the first half.  
 Both teams played a field position game in the second half with the Spartans getting down to the Little Chute 15 yard line in the final minute only to lose ten yards on two plays before kicker John Larson slipped and missed a 40 yard field goal at the end of regulation.
In the overtime, Mustang running back Jacob Debruin scored on a two yard run to give the Mustangs the 6-0 lead.  The Spartans could not muster any positive yardage on their first three plays in overtime and a desperation pass by Owen Deprez fell short in the end zone to end the game.
The Spartans outgained the Mustangs 261-184 in total yards as Cravillion and Reece Worachek combined for 189 yards in rushing but it was not enough as Little Chute defense bended but did not break all night.  
Luxemburg-Casco (3-4, 3-5 overall) will now travel to Wrightstown next Friday in a must-win game to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
