Hartington girls win Wildcat Tourney

HARTINGTON  — The Hartington Lady Wildcats kept the hardware in town Saturday.

HPS hosted the annual Wildcat Tourney, topping all competitors to claim the championship trophy.

“The girls played aggressive all day and stayed in control at the net at all times,” Coach Julie Schreiber said.”Hard work all season helped us win this tournament.”

The tourney win completed a very succesful week for Coach Schreiber’s team. The Lady Cats now hold a 16-5 season record — and are assured of finishing the season with the best record since the 2003 Lady Wildcats qualified for the State Tournament, finishing the season with a 20-3 mark.

Hartington started the week off with a victory over Randolph. The Lady Cats then traveled to Ponca, defeating the Lady Indians in three sets.

Saturday’s action started with a rematch against Ponca. The Lady Cats defeated the Lady Indians   25-20,  25-23. The Cats then took on Emerson-Hubbard in the title game, earning a 25-17, 25-23 sweep to lay claim to the tourney title.

In Hartington’s tourney opener against Ponca, the Cats put together several solid vollies to take control early.

Michaela Dendinger ended the contest with a team-high nine kills.

Courtney Hochstein aided the offense with 22 set assists. Camie Stratman and Michaela Dendinger kept the Ponca offense off balance with seven ace serves between them. As  a team, Harington combined for 10 ace serves in the contest.
