"That's a winner."

--While New Haven’s undefeated JV team has the weekend off; the 9th grade team began their first game in the Linn Tournament, winning the first set 25-14 before the lights went out.  Severe Thunderstorms rocked the Linn Dome Arena and knocking out power, forcing Friday night’s games to be postponed to a date to be determined

The varsity team is playing in Cape Girardeau at South East Missouri State in the Annual Dig for Life Challenge 48 team Volleyball Tournament, which is one of the largest tournaments in the state.

New Haven split sets against Jackson, 25-24, 25-22, in Friday night’s first game.  Kelsey Pecaut led the team with five kills and Megan Bauer with four assists.  However, the rocks had a combined six service errors, three in each set.

Emily Kallmeyer’s season high eight kills along with Taylor Goad serving 10 points and two aces helped New Haven defeat Greenville, 25-17, 25-12.

Kayla Meyer makes a great set to Rachel Steinhoff that led to a kill.

New Haven will finish pool play Saturday morning at 8 a.m. against Clearwater.  The Shamrocks are currently tied with New Madrid, as they are both 3-1.  New Madrid will take on Jackson at 9 a.m.  The team with the best record will advance into the Gold Bracket and the second best record plays in the Silver Bracket.

In order for New Haven to get a bid into the gold bracket they will have to win both of their sets and hope that New Madrid loses at least one set to Jackson, which that game will be played at 9 a.m.

We will once again have live updates for as long as the Shamrocks keep advancing.  Note: If New Haven would advance into the semi-finals of either bracket we will stream that game live.

We will have times when New Haven will play after New Madrid’s 9 a.m. match.
