Yellow Jackets Fall in Heartbreaker

Volleyball Eliminated in Heartbreaker

The Yellow Jackets dropped a tough five-set match to Wheeling Jesuit in the first round of the NCAA Atlantic Regional being held at Cal-Pa.

In a match-up of WVAIC regular season champ versus tournament winner the Cardinals prevailed by scores of 22-25, 25-10, 24-26, 25-20, and 15-13.

The squads end up tied at six sets apiece on the season as WVSU 3-0 in the team’s first meeting with Wheeling then winning 3-1 in the WVIAC tournament title game.

Chistina Wichrowski paced the Jackets with 16 kills, 13 assists, and 20 defensive digs.

Amanda Luedtke and Amanda Strong each added 11 kills while Jennifer Paswaters contributed 23 assists. Kristen Hager had 31 digs to lead the defense with Paswaters coming up with 16 and freshman Leisha Salyer 17.

WVSU winds up with a 25-5 mark.

I just walked in the house after a snow filled and 11 hour drive today. I went to watch my niece Leisha play in the first round of the NCAA Volleyball Tournament. It was a close tension filled match in which West Virginia State fell to Wheeling Jesuit.  She played great and I am very proud to be her Uncle.
Leisha…all my love…and you have made our family very proud!!!
