Thursday, Nov. 6, 1980 Twin City News-Record Page 6 A 0 3 I Zephyr spikers bid for 1 it" WISAA state crown Li Last spring', the conference volleyball coaches picked us to finish fifth. That really fired us up," the Zephyrs' second year coach declared. The Menashans captured their first league title with a 13-1 record, winning their initial 12 starts, and last weekend copped a regional crown for the first time. They'll be joined in the state field by defending champion Dominican, Pius, Onalaska Lutheran, Roncalli, BY GEORGE MANCOSKY Ntwt-Rcord tports editor MENASHA Two goals accomplished, the St, Mary Central girls' volleyball team bids for an unprece-.

dented third in its first trip to the WISAA state meet at Milwaukee Lutheran High School Saturday. "Our goals were to win the conference championship and go to the state," Coach Christ Christensen said this week. SJ horn1' ft Paul Resch named to both all-FVCC units Heading for Milwaukee The St. Central High School girls' volleyball team, champion of the Fox Valley Christian Conference, will make its first WISAA state meet appearance Saturday at Milwaukee.

(News-Record Steve Nadolny rifles 723 set to annex Wednesday pin honors Edgewood, Wisconsin Lutheran and Kenosha St. Joseph. Dominican, according to sen, probably has the best team in the state, public or private schools. It placed first in the Tournament of Champions, in which 'Neenah was second, earlier this season. The Menashans, however, received a break when the Knights were assigned to the opposite bracket in the state meet.

St. Mary will play its round-robin against Onalaska Lutheran, Pius and Wisconsin Lutheran and has to win two of three matches to advance to the championship tound. Christensen views Roncalli, Edge-wood and Onalaska as the weakest teams in the field. "I feel we're capable of playing with anyone in the area and state," the Zephyr coach noted. He expects the teams to be taller and quicker than those his club has been meeting in league play.

The Zephyrs may be at somewhat of a disadvantage in that they've played all of their matches against conference rivals and haven't peted in any tournaments. Christensen said he tried to get into an invitational or schedule another match to fill out the allowable 15 but wasn't able to make connections. The Zephyrs, 2-12 in 1977 and 1978, improved to 7-7 in Christensen's debut as head coach. He thought his team would have a good year but said, "I never thought we would have only one loss up to today. I thought 12-2 would win the conference;" "Our season never ended last year.

The girls went to volleyball camps and played all-summer." "Our kids are a family. They play together well, communicate well and pull for each other," Christensen said, adding that the team's greatest strength is the teams only have about three good reserves but we can go down to the whole bench." A number -of the girls have played together for three years. Senior Sarah Kitzerow is the No. I setter while Karen Kramer, a junior, who is out for the first time, is the other setter. Maggie Hall, a 4-year regular, is the top No.

1 hitter. Other hitters are Amy Coopman, a senior; junior Ellen Resch and Barb Braun, a sophomore. Ann Schultz is the top reserve hitter and Judy Ebben, the first setter to come off the bench. Freshman Ann Ha I Us used in serving situations. Other team members are Eileen Goggin, Jeanne Pier, Sue Simonis, Trish Koslowski and Chris Pier.

Maggie Hall and Resch have been hampered by injuries in recent weeks but Christensen expects Hall to be at; about 95 efficiency and Resch to be between 90 and 95. i Christensen said he doesn't substitute as much as he did last year, ferring to stay with six players so as not to break the continuity. Christensen, who played high school volleyball at Neenah High School and club volleyball at UW-La Crosse and UW-Stout, credits Neenah Coach Ken Boivinwith contributing to his success. "He got me started. Lowe a lot to him.

Our thinking and philosophies are much the same." The Zephyr coach has officiated volleyball for eight years andtje- MENASHA St. Mary Central's Paul Resch was voted to both the first team all-conference offensive and de-fensived squads by Fox Valley tian Conference coaches. Resch, a 6-0, 165-pound senior, who also was a first team selection on offense, last year, was a unanimous pick. He had 24 receptions to trail Manitowoc's Kevin Noskowiak, the other first team end pick, but his 468 yards was by far the best in the league. A year ago, he led the conference in receiving.

Hall voted top player by coaches MENASHA Maggie Hall and oach Christ Christensen were ac- rded post-season honors by Fox Valley Christian Conference girls' volleyball team coaches at their recent meeting. HalUa senior hitter, was chosen player of the year in the conference.

Talarczyk and Pearl Kolasinski of Wanserski's had home runs. 1 lieves by having played the game, of ficiating and being guidance counselor at the school all have helped in his coaching. Another intangible factor has been the great fan support the team has stirred up.

Christensen said there are usually 65 or more students at home and away games and, with the parents, give the team a vocal backing.
