Ethan Rustler volleyball looking to get back on TRACK

After being ranked in the initial Class B volleyball poll, the Ethan Rustlers dropped into the those receiving votes category (6th) on the most recent poll.


1. Northwestern (21)     6-0       104     1

2. Chester Area (1)        1-0       78     2

3. Warner                      1-0       70     3

4. Sully Buttes               3-0       32     RV

5. Hanson                     3-0       13     RV

Receiving votes: Ethan 2-1, Arlington 2-3, Harding County 1-0. 

Right out of the gate, Ethan lost a tough match, 22-25 and 21-25 to what looks to be a much improved Andes Central/Dakota Christian team in the first round of the Hanson Early Bird Classic in Alexandria.


But, coach Stephanie Plastow's crew regrouped and won their next two matches against Gayville-Volin, 25-12 and 25-4 and then Platte-Geddes (5th in Class B a year ago), 30-28 and 25-18. 

A pair of matches this week including tonight's contest with Kimball/White Lake and then Thursday's Sanborn Central/Woonsocket match that will be the home opener for Ethan. 


Did not know this but fellow Martin-ite, Dayre Evans is an assistant coach on the Ethan team!


Only two seniors on the roster in Tia Schmidt and Kailey Feiner so look for some growing pains early, but, perhaps some big-time improvement down the stretch.


If memory serves, Class B will switch to the Sweet-16 format this season, and for Ethan, not having to see Chester looming as a road-block to get to the DANCE, should breathe some life into the season. 

Home volleyball and football games will soon be broadcast on http://ethanrustlers.live as part of the liveticket.tv family.


Also, while panicbutton.live will bring as much Ethan related news as is humanly possible, there is a specific site on Facebook that is dedicated solely to just Ethan Rustler sports.
