Archbold 8th Grade Volleyball
The Archbold eighth grade volleyball team opened its season Thursday, Sept. 3, with a 25-13, 25- 11 win over Fairview. Marli Cheney led the team in scoring with 12 points, followed by Katie Goering with 5. “For the first game of the season, I was very pleased with how the girls ran the offense,” said Dina Gladieux, coach.
It took three games in Archbold’s second match, Thursday, Sept. 10, at Wauseon, but the Streaks pulled through 25-16, 19-25, 25-20. Chloe Schramm led the scoring with 17 points. “Our hitting was not as good as the first match, but I felt that we were extremely scrappy and kept the ball in play, and that is what made the difference,” said Gladieux.
The Streaks played in the Glass City Tournament, Saturday, Sept. 12, in Holland. Archbold played Timberstone in their first match and won 25-16, 14-25, 25-19.
In the second match, Archbold played one of two Fassett teams (Fassett feeds into Clay High School). Fassett beat the Streaks 21-25, 25- 14, 26-24.
“They used to have two different junior high buildings so they had two teams,” said Gladieux. “When they built their new building they continued to have two teams (green and gold), but they all attend the same school. These two teams ended up playing each other for the championship on Saturday. They were very good teams.
“I was very proud of the way our girls played against them. We came out and won the first game, and then got too comfortable and lost the second game. In the third game we battled back and forth and lost 26-24, but it was a fun game to watch with some lengthy rallies.”
McCord beat Archbold in the third match 16-25, 25-23, 25-22. “Again we came out on fire and won the first game,” said Gladieux.
“Then in game 2 we were down 24-17 when Kelsey Wyse went back to serve. This is a tough position for a server, but Kelsey stepped up to the challenge and took the score to 23-25. In the third game we again were in a comeback position at 18-24. Lauren Horst was the server this time and got the score to 22-25.
“Both losses were tough, but it was good to see what we need to work on. We played three very good teams and battled in all three matches. In my mind, the things that stand out were Lauren Horst passing well, Katie Goering had some great digs, Marli Cheney had a nice hitting day.
“Overall, I thought we played scrappy, moving and keeping the ball in play, but our focus for the week coming up is finding the ability to ‘finish it.’ We just did not do that on Saturday.”
Other members of the team: Chloe Schramm, Kayla Boettger, Lauren Coressel, Grace Ritta and Cassidy Baden.

The Pettisville soccer team started the season, Tuesday, Aug. 25, with a 3-1 victory over the visiting Lake Flyers. Felipe Chavez put the Birds on the board two minutes into the game with an unassisted goal slashing in on the right wing. Isaac Cisneros and Brett Coopshaw also scored, and Andrew Hulbert was awarded an assist.
The Blackbirds notched their second win of the season with a 2-0 win over Emmanuel Christian, Thursday, Sept. 3. The Warriors brought a very athletic team to Pettisville, but the Birds were up to the challenge.
Mitchell Avina scored an unassisted goal in the first half. In the second period, Braydon Barrett provided the assist for Avina’s second goal. A strong defense led by Graeme Jacoby in the goal and Joel Flory at sweeper ensured the shutout.
After a week off for the fair, Pettisville returned to action Thursday, Sept. 10, on the road at Monclova Christian. The Birds returned home with a 4-1 win. Goals were scored by Coopshaw, Cisneros, Chavez and Avina.
The Blackbirds met the Thunder again on Monday evening, Sept. 14, on their home turf, and moved to 4-0 with a 6-2 victory. Avina got the scoring going three minutes into the game, placing a nice feed from Coopshaw into the back of the net. Ten minutes later, Chavez scored the first of his three goals for the game. Cisneros capped off the first period scoring three minutes later, driving up the left side and blasting a shot in off the keeper’s hands.
In the second period, Avina scored and Chavez finished off his “hat trick.” Assists in the second half were awarded to Cisneros and Ben Morris.
