Comets’ road to state goes through Waverly once again

Just like last year, and the year before that, the Comets have to get past Waverly-Shell Rock for a bid in the state tournament.

While last year Charles City slammed home a 3 games to 1 victory to get into the regional championship, the rivals are face to face in that title game tonight at 7 p.m. in the Nashua- Plainfield gymnasium.

No doubt, it will be an exciting night of volleyball as these teams “mirror each other,” head coach Sue Hoefer said after Monday’s final tune-up in Comet Gym.

The Comets will need to hit aggressively and pass and serve well, she said.

This is the final chase of a state tournament bid for four seniors on the team: Alexis Clough, Shay Carolan, Melany Pleggenkuhle and Jamie Sindlinger.

Sindlinger enters the night 15th in the state in kills with 402. She’s also among the five Comets who have more than 100 sets on the season. Sophomores Tayler Schmidt and Sydney Loeckle lead the team with 105. Junior Sara Martin, Carolan and Sindlinger each have 104.

Loeckle has the team lead in assists at 866 Schmidt also enters the game with the more successfull serves at 380 and most aces at 50.

Junior Katie Foster has the most digs at 452. And Carolan leads in total blocks at 40.
