PREP ROUNDUP: Domke sets new records in Onaway volleyball victory

ONAWAY–The Onaway volleyball team went wire-to-wire with Inland River Inland Lakes on Tuesday and came out a winner.

Breya Domke set two new school records and the Cardinals rallied to beat the Bulldogs in five sets: 25-10, 15-25, 25-19, 16-25 and 15-12.

Domke set new marks for attacks in a match with 100 and kills in a match with 25. Both numbers bettered the marks set by Lexi Szymoniak of 87 and 23 respectively.

Onaway trailed 11-7 in the deciding set and rallied back to improve to 2-0 in Ski Valley Conference play.

“It was about avoiding errors and they team that did that usually won the set,” Onaway coach Steve Watson said. “They were pretty on par with us and it was like whoever could get to 20 the fastest would win it.”

Domke finished the night with 25 kills, three aces, 29 digs and two blocks. Mallorie Neelis had four kills, 34 assists and 18 digs. Jordan Larson had 15 digs. Chloe Ehrke had three aces, three kills and 13 digs, Jackie Sellke had four kills and six aces and Malaurie McLean had 14 digs.

Onaway plays in a tournament at Morley-Stanwood on Saturday and plays at Fife Lake Forest Area on Tuesday.
