The Lady Tigers had the opportunity to participate in the Archie Tournament this past Saturday.
In the first game of the day against Butler, Rich Hill struggled to get things to go their way and lost two games (18-25 and 14-25). They were able to improve their play as the day went on. Serena Duncan and Montana Stangel led the team in serving, Kylann Tourtillott led in kills with 4, and Allie Schmitt led in passing percentage.
The next game was played against Drexel. Although the Tigers lost the momentum at the end of the first game to end with a loss (21-25), they were able to turn that momentum in their favor and defeat Drexel in the second game (25-15). Kylann Tourtillott led in Serving Aces with 2, Serena Duncan led in kills with 3, and Allie Schmitt led in passing percentage.
Taking that earned momentum with them into the next game, the Lady Tigers played hard to secure a two game victory over Hume (25-13 and 25-13). Allie Schmitt and Kylann Tourtillott led the team in Serving Aces with 4 a piece, Serena Duncan led in kills with 4, and Jozelynn West led in passing percentage.
With the wins against Drexel and Hume, the Lady Tigers secured a spot in the championship bracket. In their first game of the bracket, Rich Hill faced KC Lutheran. After a tough loss to them just a few days ago, the Tigers were ready for a second chance. Although they didn’t win (13-25 and 16-25), Rich Hill played a much better game this time around against a strong KC Lutheran team. Kylann Tourtillott led the team in both Serving Aces with 2 and kills with 3. Allie Schmitt had the highest passing percentage of the game.
Overall, the Rich Hill Tigers had a pretty good day at the Archie Tournament. Fans got to see some great volleyball being played!
