Hayfield Volleyball Coach

The Hayfield Vikings (15-3 overall 6-1 conference) volleyball team notched two more Hiawatha Valley League (HVL) wins against #2AA Stewartville and Byron this week in the midst of a full week of Homecoming events. The girls participated in coronation and a powder puff football game in addition to playing some great volleyball.

Hayfield got its first signature win of the season with a shocking 3-2 victory over #2AA Stewartville (10-2 overall, 5-1 conference).

The Vikings opened up the match with a 25-19 victory in game one. After that, the Stewartville Tigers took control of the match with wins in games two and three with scores of 25-20 and 25-10.

Things looked very dismal for the Vikings after game three. But the Vikings regrouped and decided to make this a match. In game four, the Tigers and the Vikings battled back and forth the entire game. It was a tight match and neither team gained much of an edge.

The Vikings fought very hard to earn a 29-27 victory.

Game five was no different, a battle to the very end with huge momentum swings. In a stunner, the Vikings outlasted the Tigers for a 15-13 victory. It was a signature win for the Hayfield volleyball program, one that the community has been waiting for many years.

Hayfield stats: Kate Kruger, 15 kills, 9 blocks; Maggie Streightiff, 14 kills, 27 assists, 22 digs, 1 ace; Carrie Rutledge, 13 kills, 31 digs, 2 blocks; Katrina Thoe, 5 kills; Alexis Dudycha, 2 kills, 23 assists, 15 digs, 1 block, 2 aces; Olivia Matti, 2 kills, 24 digs, 2 blocks; Cela Carney, 25 digs.
