Edgerton High’s volleyball team showed off its growth Tuesday night.

For the second consecutive season, the Crimson Tide hosted Campbellsport in the Division 2 regional quarterfinals. Last year, seventh-seeded Edgerton was easily swept away. But on Tuesday, the Tide rallied to win a five-set thriller.

Edgerton, a No. 8 seed this year, won 29-27, 25-23, 19-25, 23-25, 15-7 to earn a date with top-seeded and top-ranked Lake Country Lutheran in the regional semifinals Thursday night.

“Our growth from last year to this year was definitely part of the reason for our success,” Edgerton coach Sharon Fox said. “Our defense was solid. Our back-row play allowed us to run our offense.”

Kate Fox Gunderson had 36 assists and three aces to lead the Tide. Carly Rebman smashed 23 kills, while Shannon Rusch added 24 digs.

Cassidy Danks had two of her three block kills at the end of the marathon first set that gave the Tide the momentum.

“It was definitely a team win,” Fox said. “We had contributions from every player. They played well together and believed and trusted in each other.”

East Troy 3, Delavan-Darien 0—Emily Wendt had 31 assists, 10 digs, four aces and two blocks to help the third-seeded Trojans sweep the Comets, 25-19, 25-11, 25-12.
