On October 22 the MMCRU Royals played Gehlen Catholic in a season ending regional loss. The loss resulted in the close of the 2018 season. The Royals’ season match record ended up at 10-15.

As a team the Royals played 75 sets, had 503 kills, 7.6% kill efficiency, 91.5% serve efficiency and 135 aces. Jaylen Bork, a sophomore, had the most kills of the season with 116. Bork also had a kill efficiency of 16.9%, 92 digs, 77 blocks, 91.7% serve efficiency and 19 aces. Freshman Emily Dreckman had 97 kills, 3.9% kill efficiency and 83 blocks.

She had 199 assists, 93.8% serve efficiency and 18 aces. Haley Schwarz had 148 digs, 81 kills, 92.7% serve efficiency and 26 aces.

Junior Faith Olson said, “Overall, I’d say our season went really well. We were a young team and we will have a lot of returning talent for next year. We had our ups and downs all throughout the season and the season didn’t end how we wanted it to. However, we will work hard in the offseason to get to where we want to be next season. The most memorable moment for me this year is when we beat Cherokee one set in the Alta-Aurelia tournament.”

Madison Treinen, a senior, said, “The season overall was good. We had a lot of fun and my favorite part of the season was all of the awkward moments. Also I want to give a big shoutout to our sports dad, Shane Bork, for bringing us all Burger Barn shakes after our win against RSM.”

Head coach Heather Youde said, “Overall, I thought we had a good season. We finished 10-15, which is one of the best records we have had in a long time. We were able to run high end offenses because of the girls’ skill levels. I am very excited to see how far I can push this team as they accomplished everything I threw at them this season.”

Good job on a great season Royals!
