Maack records 1,000 set assists in Tiger lossPublished 9:15am Friday, September 6, 2013
ROTHSAY — Rothsay’s Ashley Maack and Tiger fans celebrated her milestone of recording 1,000 set assists Thursday night in the Tigers’ game against Battle Lake.
But after the confetti and cheers were over, the Battlers were the ones celebrating as it swept the hosting Tigers 25-15, 25-14, 25-23.
“Battle Lake was tough to defend tonight,” Tiger coach Heather Reber said. “We struggled getting a touch on the ball when they were hitting and that hurt us defensively.”
The Tigers could not overcome its hitting errors as the Battlers moved to 3-1 on the year.
Commenting on Maack’s achievement, coach Reber had nothing but the best to say about her four-year starter.
“She has been a reliable leader on the court for these past four years. She’s the type of player every coach hopes to have on their team. I couldn’t be more proud of her.”
The Tigers and Battlers will both compete Saturday in the Pelican Rapids Tournament beginning at 9 a.m.
