Swing after swing, the Lakeside Lutheran girls volleyball team put pressure on Whitewater’s defense.

And after holding up early, the floodgates opened as senior Ella Collins and junior Payton Kuepers combined for 25 kills as the second-ranked Warriors defeated the visiting Whippets, 25-15, 25-17, 25-12 Thursday in a WIAA Division 2 regional semifinal.

The 10th-seeded Whippets, who got to this point by beating seventh-ranked Walworth Big Foot, were able to play evenly for stretches of the match.

But against the No. 2 ranked team in Division 2, they just couldn’t sustain it.

“We needed to focus on our details and just stay confident. We are a very good team,” Bullis said. “We just need to stay confident.”

Emme Bullis led the Whippets with 11 kills.
