Due to an uptick in COVID cases in Wessington Springs, the volleyball game scheduled with them in Woonsocket last Tuesday had to be postponed, so the SCW Lady Blackhawks had just one match last week. On Saturday, Sept. 19, they hosted the Oldham-Ramona/Rutland (ORR) Raiders.

The afternoon started with a junior high game and a loss for the Lady Blackhawks with set scores of 16-25 and 2-25. However, things improved for the home team with the following junior varsity game. The JV match did go to three sets, but SCW came out on top with set scores of 25-12, 19-25 and 15-11.

The varsity girls matched up pretty well with the Raiders, which made for an entertaining game. The Lady Blackhawks worked hard and ended the evening with a victory in four sets. The set scores were 25-21, 25-19, 21-25 and 25-17.

SCW was powered by Cassidy Slykhuis with 16 kills and three blocks. Brooke Doering handed in 10 kills and three blocks, while Ellie VonEye tossed in 16 digs and 12 assists. Morgan Schmiedt notched 19 assists and four ace serves, and Trista White helped out with 13 digs and seven kills. Kaitlin Brueske added four ace serves for the win.

The SCW Lady Blackhawks are now 3-3 on the season. This week, they went to Wolsey-Wessington on Tuesday, Sept. 22, and they host Iroquois in Woonsocket on Thursday, Sept. 24. On Monday, Sept. 28, they host Freeman at Sanborn Central, which is an added game because the Corsica tournament was cancelled. Then, on Tuesday, Sept. 29, the ladies travel to Highmore to take on the Pirates. With the pandemic, most schools are making sure their events are livestreamed either online or on a Santel school channel, so take advantage of the technology to support the teams and enjoy some entertaining contests.

On Wednesday, Sept. 9, the Blackhawk Cross Country team traveled to Wessington Springs to compete in the 281 Conference Meet at the Springs Country Club.

The race was initially scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., but rain delayed the start time to 1 p.m. The temperature at the Springs Country Club was chilly, and the sky was overcast when the girls’ varsity began the races for the afternoon. The Blackhawk girls had four runners competing. Hannah Terkildsen medaled with fourth place. As a team, the girls varsity placed third at the 281 Conference Meet.

The boys’ varsity race was run second with six Blackhawk runners competing. The Blackhawk boys who medaled included Jeff Boschee in third place, Noah Terkildsen in sixth, and Braxton Gentles who placed 10th. As a team, the Blackhawk boys brought home first place in the 281 Conference Meet.

The cross-country team next travels to Chamberlain to compete on Thursday, Sept. 17, and Dell Rapids on Wednesday, Sept. 23.

On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the Lady Blackhawks traveled to Corsica to play a full night of volleyball. They started with a junior high game, which ended in a 0-3 loss for the young Blackhawks. Set scores were 13-25, 19-25 and 12-15. 

The C-team followed the junior high, and they brought home the only Blackhawk win on the night. They won all three sets played with scores of 25-17, 25-19 and 12-9. The junior varsity fought a tough match with the Lady Jaguars and suffered a loss with set scores of 15-25 and 22-25. 

The varsity squad ended the night of games as they went up against a well-oiled machine in the Corsica-Stickney volleyball team. The Lady Blackhawks fell to the Jaguars in three sets with scores of 9-25, 13-25 and 18-25.

The Lady Blackhawks were supposed to have their next game on Tuesday, Sept. 15 in Woonsocket, but due to exposure to COVID-19, their opposing team from Wessington Springs couldn’t come over to play. That game is to be rescheduled sometime this season. So, SCW will have their next game on Saturday, Sept. 19 against Oldham-Ramona/Rutland in Forestburg. Their following game will be on Tuesday, Sept. 22 in Wolsey.
