Sports The Tyler Tribute, Thursday, August 28, 2003- Page RTR Knights Volleyball Team Starts 5&apos;e, Json Big Win Over YME RTR volleyball coach Nell Witte felt this could be a good year for his RTR Knights. If the opening game of the season is any indica- tion, it will be. The Knights battled a tough Yellow Medicine East team last Thursday and came away with a three game sweep, winning 25-21, 25-23 and 25-22. (Scores now go to 25 instead of 15 because of the new rally-scoring format approved by the MSHSL last year.) "This was a good way for us to start out the season," Witte said, "with a win against a pretty decent team." All three games were pretty closely fought matches. In game one, RTR was behind 9-7, but came back to lead 12-10, with Stephanie Evans having five straight serves. The Knights kept a four point lead and won it 25-21. In game two, the Knights again fell behind early, but then came back on serving runs by Amber Meulebroeck and Kristi Thooft. RTR then had a big 17-13 lead. But YME wasn't done, and they had a rally of their own to get within two points at 20-18, and then tied it at 21-21. Muelebroeck got the score to 24-22 for RTR, so the Knights only needed one more point - they got it after YME scored one more also. Final for game two: 25-23. In game three the two teams battled back and forth for a while - and the game was tied at 6-6. After that, the Knights gained control and kept at least a two point lead through the rest of the game. They won 25-22 to complete the three game sweep of the sting. i Middle School Volleyball Schedule Date Opponent Location Sept. 4 Minneota Home Sept. 9 Lynd- 7th only There Sept. 13 Camden7th Hendricks Sept. 16 Lake Benton There Sept. 18 Canby There Sept. 20 Camden 8th Cotonwood Sept. 22 Lincoln HI Home Sept. 23 Holy Redeemer There Sept. 25 Th Home Sept. 29 Holy Redeemer Home Sept. 30 Lynd - 8th Only Home Oct. 2 Minneota There Oct. 6 LincolnHI Hendricks Oct. 7 Pipestone Home Oct. 9 Lakeview There Oct. 14 Marshall Home Witte was pleased with the team's serving, a key to the game in the rally-style format.
