Majettes take fangs from Coyotes
Minot High beats Williston at home in WDA play-in game
The Minot High Majettes volleyball team took the fangs out of the Williston Coyotes last night in the Western Dakota Association play-in game. MHS earned a 3-0 victory (25-14, 25-15 and 25-10).
The Majettes lost their primary setter, so junior setter Cambry Frantsvog stepped up to fill the role. Head Coach Sherry Carlson said Frantsvog played a five-to one offense, something she had never done before, and Carlson said she did extremely well at it.
A five-to-one offense, as described by Frantsvog, is a method in which there are five hitters on the court and only one setter.
“I think it went really well,” the setter said. “It was really tough at first but we worked on it all week in practice and we were ready for it.”
She also thought the game went really well. Their communication was clear at the start and they “ran a quick offense.” Within a couple of minutes in the third set, the Majettes had eight points and Williston had not yet scored.
“I think it really paid off in the end,” Frantsvog said.
She also really enjoys playing the role of setter and she plans on playing the same position for her senior year, as well. She knows a lot of people who play volleyball really just want to hit the ball and described the position of setter as underrated. Despite setting being difficult, she loves doing it.
“Setting is a lot more fun than it looks,” she continued, “and just seeing your hitters get a good hit, and the play. It’s really rewarding as a setter.”
Frantsvog led with 22 assists and 10 digs. Morgan Wheeler had 10 kills.
The Majettes will be playing in the WDA playoffs in Mandan at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. If they win, they will go on to the next round in playoffs.
