The Stratford Tigers fell just short of the Gold Ball Trophy in the state volleyball tournament Saturday in Green Bay.
But before that, they had been undefeated, thanks in part to the performance of senior Mazie Nagel.
Nagel was a monster on the court this season, and made her presence known at the Resch Center, tallying 41 combined kills in their two wins, including 23 in their semifinal win over Living Word Lutheran.
Nagel, much like the rest of her team, is disappointed they couldn’t finish their perfect season, but she says it was still an incredible season.
“I was sad that we didn’t win that gold ball, but I wasn’t mad with how the season turned out,” Nagel said.
“Being from Stratford, volleyball isn’t really a big thing here, and my grade of seniors really turned that around, and made it something this community could really get into. So I’m happy with how we placed.”
