Pope John Central Catholic’s Lady Crusaders posted a 15-15 record during the 2009 volleyball season.

Coach Emily Borer’s team’s biggest accomplishment came in late October when they upended Ewing in four sets to place third at the NVC Tournament.

“2009 was a rebuilding year for Pope John,” Coach Borer said. “Coaching this team was both rewarding and challenging as we went through some highs and lows as any team does. The four seniors were the core of the team, but I’m really proud of the younger girls who came in and completed our team and made us very competitive in the NVC. 

“Some of our highs were upsetting St. Mary’s and beating Ewing in the NVC tourney. That’s something our seniors worked hard to make happen. Sandi (Henn) and I are proud of all 25 girls, it really was a joy to coach this last group of Crusaders.”

Senior Kasi Stoltz led the team with 45 ace serves. She also was the statistical leader in set assists (512) and tips (78).

“The 2009 volleyball season was truly a fun and exciting year,” Coach Tina Thiele-Blecher said last week. “Our motto this year was ‘dynamite comes in small packages,’ and that is how these girls worked. With only nine players, all of them were constantly working hard during practice and at game time everybody had to be ready for anything. It was a pleasure coaching these girls that worked so well together and didn’t cause any drama. The team would like to thank everyone for the treats, cheers and encouragement throughout the season, it was all much appreciated.”

Junior Michelle Bauer led the team in kills with 185. She was also the leader in digs with 151 and serve receive with 276.
