GCMH Emergency Department named one of top three in nation By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register GRUNDY CENTER — As a critical access hospital, Grundy County Memorial Hospital (GCMH) serves as a first line of emergency services for area residents. Tuesday the hospital’s work in that area was recognized on a national basis. The GCMH Emergency Department was honored with a Beacon of Excellence Award at Tuesday’s Press Ganey National Client Conference in Orlando, Fla., recognizing it as one of the top three emergency departments in the nation based on patient satisfaction. “To be in the top three hospitals in the emergency department in the United States is amazing and I’m very proud of every person who works in my department,” GCMH inpatient and emergency room manager JoDee Knox said. “It’s not one person, it’s everyone. It takes everyone to make all these people happy and to deliver great quality care.” “Being recognized in the top three in the country is an outstanding achievement,” Hospital president and CEO Brian Kellar added. “It demonstrates that we’re doing just what is intended for critical access hospitals — capably administering emergency care and saving lives See GCMH page 3

Methodist Church to celebrate 150th anniversary GRUNDY CENTER — The Grundy Center United Methodist Church will celebrate its 150th anniversary Sunday with a service that combines old-fashioned worship with a modern service. “What we want to do is have at least one opportunity to celebrate the heritage that has been given to us,” UMC Pastor Phil Dicks said. “It’s critically important that we know where we are today and to honor where we’ve come from.” Dicks said the service will include music that came from the 150th, 100th and 50th anniversaries of the church as well as from its founding.

“We don’t even know what some of the tunes are but we do have the words, we’re going to put that together,” he said. Following the service, many historical items will be placed on display in the fellowship hall, many of which have not been seen for many, many years. Among those items will be a board from 1812 with names carved in it that was discovered in the rafters when the church was recently updating its sound and video systems. “They’re putting out things that no one’s ever seen before — things that have been stored away or in

safes,” Dicks said. Some items, which the church has duplicate copies of, will be available to be taken. There will also be a giant birthday cake with 150 candles. Rather than traditional cake, church members found cake recipes that were used in the 1800s from the original cookbooks they were printed in. “There will be six different cakes with six different recipes,” Dicks said. “Part of the challenge is that some of the recipes don’t have amounts — they just list ingredients. So we have people that have been playing around and testing these. We’re going to print those recipes so people can take them. And they can also taste test them.” The history of the church dates back to Aug. 4, 1857 when an intolerant Methodist minister appeared at the home of Lyman Cole, the the owner of one of just six houses in Grundy Center at the time. Four weeks later the minister returned to hold services and deliver what are believed to have been the first sermons spoken in Grundy Center. In 1863, the Methodist Conference appointed the Rev. Joel A. VanAnda to serve a circuit of four points, one of which was Grundy Center. The first church building was constructed in 1868 on the same location where the current building stands. In 1891 the current building was constructed to replace the original structure, which had been damaged in a storm and which the congregation of 206 had outgrown. “We want to be able to hear some of the stories of the people who gave much in order to make the church what it is today,” Dicks said. “We want to look not only at the historical value, but also the spiritual history as people begin to say ‘This is a critical element in my life.’” Last week current members of the church unearthed a time capsule that had been part of the church since that 1891 construction. In it they found a Bible, a hymnal, coins and several local newspapers. Many items found in the lead box had been severely

damaged by moisture that had found its way into the capsule over the past 122 years. Dicks said even finding the time capsule was exciting, as it was pure speculation as to whether it would be in the cornerstone at all. “Usually, in the old Methodist churches and cornerstones, they would dig them out and put a box inside,” he said. “People have the idea that a cornerstone usually has something in it, but sometimes they don’t.” The church brought in a masonry expert to cut out the stone. After overcoming fear that the cornerstone had been taken out once before, nothing was initially found behind it as the stone was removed. “When we got done they were taking it and they were dusting it off when (they started tapping on the top and discovered), ‘This is hollow!’,” Dicks said. It took several more minutes for the church members to find a crevice and eventually instructions about how to remove the stone’s lid. “They took that off, they opened it up and inside was the box,” the pastor said.

From page 1 while maintaining the highest standards for delivering care,” he said. The award being presented to the local hospital is selected from more than 1,600 hospitals nationwide that utilize Press Ganey to measure patient satisfaction. It cites health care organizations that have been recognized for excellence in multiple years. Hospitals in all 50 states are eligible for the award. Knox said the Emergency Department strives to work as a team with its clerk, registered nurse and physicians. “And we treat the patients like they’re our family,” she said. Community Outreach Manager Keely Harken noted that patients who come to the emergency room are not coming there under pleasant circumstances, making the fact that they had good experiences at the hospital all the more satisfying. “They’re ill, they’re sick, they’re scared, they’re worried about what’s happening to them and then this is how they evaluate the care that’s provided by our nurses and physicians and clerks,” she said. Many of the emergency room doctors who work in Grundy Center specialize and are board certified in emergency medicine. Most also work in larger hospitals and come to do shifts in Grundy Center’s emergency room. “They choose to come here because they like to work here — they like the patients that they take care of and they like the people that they work with,” Knox said. “They only have to work one shift here and they want to come back,” she added. “Everybody works really well together, we have a really nice facility and we have all the equipment for them to take the

best care possible of our patients.” And when physicians indicate there is something else they need, Knox said an effort is made to get them that equipment. “We have highly trained physicians, so when they say ‘I think this is what we need to do to give the best care possible,’ we listen,” she said. Yet both Kellar and Knox said the success of Grundy Center’s Emergency Department is more than about giving the best clinical care. “You have to have the compassion and the totality piece to go along with it and that has to be part of your culture and has to be important to you,” Kellar said. “You can’t fake it. “It’s a small-town, rural Iowa standard of treating our patients like they are family and recognizing each patient as an individual,” he said. The Grundy Center Memorial Hospital Emergency Department has seen nearly 3,600 Emergency Department visits in the past year. It has been recognized the past four years as being among the top 1 percent nationally based on Press Ganey surveys. The award is the latest in a series of recognitions that Grundy County Memorial Hospital has received over the past year. The GCMH Inpatient Department was recognized as a Top 20 Most Recommended Hospital by the National Rural Health Association, and its Outpatient Services, including is radiology, lab and therapy departments, received a Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award for outstanding patient satisfaction. “It’s great to get recognized,” Kellar said. “You go out there and try to do the best job and that’s where our people are committed and focused.”

Farmers sought for beginning farmer mentoring program

AMES ­— Does your farm seek a highly motivated farm employee? Are you looking for a way to support the next generation of Iowa farmers by sharing your farming knowledge with an aspiring farmer? If so, consider becoming a trainer in Practical Farmers of Iowa’s Labor4Learning program. The program, now entering its second year, is an effort to help beginning farmers receive paid, on-the-job training while helping experienced farmers attract high-quality, motivated farm employees. Applications will be accepted through Dec. 9. Up to 15 trainer farms will be selected by a committee of Practical Farmers members. Farms of all sizes, enterprises, production practices and regions in Iowa are encouraged to apply. To be eligible to serve as a trainer, farmers must live or farm in Iowa and be Practical Farmers of Iowa members. To become a member, visit or call the PFI office at (515) 232-5661. Approved trainer farms will receive a payment of up to $200 per month, not to exceed $1,000 per year. This money pays farmers to spend additional time educating trainees on farm business development – training that gives trainees knowledge and business insights beyond the experience they gain performing tasks as a farm laborer. Training time may be flexible, on-the-job or of an informal nature, and should take about one to two hours per week. Trainers will also receive support learning about farm labor regulations.

From The

Cheap Seats

Fifty years ago this week, one of the most significant events in our family’s history took place. It had nothing to do with President Kennedy’s assassination, though it did happen in his home state. It was 50 years ago Saturday that my parents were united in marriage. I’ve talked before about the importance of milestones and anniversaries to me. I celebrate personal accomplishments and truly wish I could get to Florida to celebrate this one with my mom and dad, the two most important people in my life. I spent a lot of time thinking about what to write about my parents, and I’ll be honest that this was a difficult column to write. My parents were high school sweethearts who grew up in neighboring communities and attended a recentlyconsolidated high school together. They married while dad was attending college in Indiana, far from their home near Worchester, Mass. Both came from working families. At least once I got to know them, three of my four grandparents worked for the same factory in Worchester, though I am unsure if they were acquainted prior to my parents’ getting to know one another. Both my sets of grandparents also reached 50 years of marriage together. Mom and Dad moved frequently when they were By JOHN JENSEN young. Dad took a job in the Chicago area after graduating from college and worked there until returning to New England, where I was born. Between the time I was born and was 14 we moved five times, each time across state lines and always far from their parents’ home. They generally saw their parents twice a year — once when grandma and grandpa visited us and once when we visited them. People have asked why I don’t move closer to Mom and Dad in Florida ... a lot of it is that being far from loved ones is what I’ve always known. My parents provided a loving family for me growing up - providing everything we needed and most of what we wanted. We didn’t live an extravagant life, but we always had a nice home in a nice neighborhood. They say opposites attract, and that seems to have been the case with my parents. Mom likes to be social and have friends her age; Dad is just as happy being alone. Dad has always liked to build things — there was a time when most everything in our home, including our kitchen cabinets, had been hand-built by him. My mother, on the other hand, is an avid reader and enjoys working on the computer. Among our rules at home were that we never talked about politics, something I later figured out was because my parents were basically on opposite sides of the political spectrum (though both claimed to be independent). We were a traditional family in a somewhat old-fashioned sense. Mom often didn’t work outside the home and we always sat down for meals together, even when I had evening activities. She and Dad still have dinner together every night. Though my parents are opposites, they are also intensely loyal to one another. I learned that the hard way once or twice while growing up and have understood it a lot more since leaving home. Though they have been through the same hard times as most couples, I still believe my parents are each other’s best friend. Mom and Dad, I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to see you this week. I had truly hoped to make it down there to help celebrate this most important time with you, though work obligations dictated otherwise. I’ll see you at Christmas, when I’ll have more time to spend with you. • • • The fall sports season wrapped up Friday the same way the past two fall seasons have ... with Dike-New Hartford’s volleyball team downing Western Christian in the state final. It was two years ago, when D-NH surprised Western for its first title in 14 years, that I suggested that the Wolverines and Wolfpack could dominate Class 2A the next few years. It was an easy prediction knowing the depth of talent on both teams as well as the quality of coaching and commitment to volleyball. The first two rounds of the last couple of state tournaments have truly felt like a march to the inevitable. D-NH and Western Christian are just that much better than everyone else in Class 2A. The past couple of 2A state finals have played out similarly, with Western Christian dominating early and Dike-New Hartford winning enough hard-fought points later to win the match. It’s incredible volleyball to watch. For the first time Friday, I actually started to feel for the kids from Western. I know I work for a newspaper where Dike-New Hartford is very important to us, and I truly love watching the Wolverines play. But for the Western Christian kids to play so well the past three years only to lose to the same group of Dike-New Hartford kids who played a tiny bit better ... it has to be an incredibly empty feeling. In all my years covering sports, this Wolverine team is the most dominant I’ve covered in any sport. I covered a Washington team that won three straight girls’ basketball championships, but that team won largely on the talents of one very, very talented young lady. This Wolverine

For the Spartans, making State was that ceiling based on the schedule they play and being in Class 2A. Being ranked No. 9 in the state, you knew GC would likely face either Dike or Western Christian in the first round ... and, like I just said, those two teams have incredible talent and experience. If GC had been in Class 1A, as they were last year (they were the second-smallest school in 2A this year after being the largest in 1A last season), their ceiling likely would have been a lot higher. On a side note, it was great to see the Grundy girls at the state tournament the final two days despite them having lost in the first round. For a few minutes before the finals they even got to step on the court, albeit shagging balls for their cross-county rivals. • • • Finally, I hope you are all able to come out to Grundy Center’s Festival of Trees and Village of Lights this weekend. Things worked out that we could be the same weekend this year, and I must admit feeling this is best for everyone. Last year, a committee that includes Tiffany Carson, Phil Dicks, Brandi Gordon, Andrew Peters and I put together an expanded Village of Lights Festival to include a parade, lighting ceremony and balloon drop for the first time in a few years. We felt the festival was successful, but also listened to a few people’s ideas for changes. The biggest change we made was the date. The festival had previously been the Friday after Thanksgiving, but many people talked about not being able to attend because they were out of town visiting relatives for the festival. The decision was made to move it back a week, which put it on the same weekend as Grundy Center’s Festival of Trees, and also to move it from Friday to Saturday so that events can be planned throughout the day. I’m really excited with what the group came up with. The Kling Memorial Library will host Breakfast with Mrs. Claus, and the Center Theatre will host a showing of “Polar Express.” The Fire Department Auxiliary will also host a bazaar that day. I really feel like having the Village of Lights events and Festival of Trees on the same weekend will be best for both events, providing something for everyone. The events attract different audiences, creating something for everyone. I strongly encourage you to support and attend both events.

Beginning at the Center Theatre on Friday, Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. will be the sci-fi/adventure Ender’s Game, starring Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley and Abigail Breslin. This movie is rated PG-13 for violence, running approximately 120 minutes in length. At 7:30 will be the drama/ thriller Gravity 2D, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. This movie is rated PG-13 for violence, running approximately 90 minutes in length. THE CENTER THEATRE WILL BE CLOSED THANKSGIVING EVENING. THERE WILL BE NO MATINEES THIS WEEKEND. Ender’s Game takes place in the near future, where a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race. Based on the

best-selling, award winning novel, Ender’s Game is an epic adventure which stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, with Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford. In Gravity 2D, Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and George Clooney (Up in the Air, Syriana) star in this heartpounding thriller written, directed and produced by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men) and set in the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space. Bullock plays a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with Clooney as a veteran astronaut in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving the two completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth...and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space. Gravity 2D is an exciting and suspenseful movie you will not want to miss at the Center Theatre this week!

Silence iS Golden The value of silence in our noisy and busy world is easy to overlook, and even though many of us would like a quieter environment, it can be almost impossible to find a truly quiet place in much of the modern world. Cars, trucks and motorcycles with loud mufflers are some of the worst offenders when it comes to disrupting what little serenity we have. Loud music and boisterous parties are perennial disturbers of the peace as well. Since loud and inconsiderate people are not likely to be convinced of the errors of their ways, holy men and women have always known the importance of sequestering themselves, going into caves or sojourning in the wilderness. Some religious orders even take vows of silence. Finding quiet time each and every day pays big dividends to our spiritual and emotional health, and probably our physical health as well. We should consider also whether our lifestyle is contributing to a quieter world or if we are one of those vexatious disturbers of the peace. – Christopher Simon

Tile Drainage for profitable crop production in Grundy Center Dec. 2

Gifts in a Jar class scheduled for December 5

Medical Reserve Corps seeking volunteers

Thursday, November 21, 2013

ISU Extension Specialists Matt Helmers, Dan Huyser and Kelvin Leibold will be in Grundy Center December 2 to present a program on tile drainage for profitable crop production. Class is open to the public and all are invited to participate in this two hour class. As more producers utilize yield mapping, the loss of poor yield to poor drainage conditions has become more apparent. This has increased the questions and demand for information on how we can efficiently utilize tile drainage to improve crop

production in eastern Iowa. To help answer these and other questions on tile drainage on Iowa soils, a drainage workshop has been scheduled at the Grundy Center Community Center on December 2 from 1-3:30 p.m. Cost is $15 in advance or $25 at the door. To register call Shari at the Grundy County Extension Office at 319-824-6979, e-mail sellbakk@ or visit our office at 703 F Avenue, Suite 1, Grundy Center. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.

Tips for healthier Holiday eating

GRUNDY CENTER — With Thanksgiving just days away, American families will be preparing for a dinner that includes traditional favorites likes turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing. The dietitians at Grundy County Memorial Hospital understand that holiday meals can present a challenge to those who are working to maintain a healthy weight, control their cholesterol, or are diabetic. Crystal Petersen, RD LD, advises that a little advance planning can prevent the holiday season from sabotaging your healthy eating plan. She advises these steps for now through the holiday party season: • Plan ahead. Look over the entire buffet and plan what you’d like to eat. This will keep foods off your plate that you may not really want. • Serve yourself so you can control your portion sizes. • Fill your plate with vegetables before choosing entrees and desserts. Eating a salad before your meal can help you eat fewer calories overall. • If you have a choice, choose a small plate. The smaller the plate the less you can eat. • Remember to drink water or another low calorie beverage with your meal. • Eat slowly, savor each bite and put your fork down between bites. • Wait at least 10 minutes after thinking about going back for seconds. Then ask yourself “am I still hungry?” • After the meal, choose a place

far away from the food so you won’t be tempted. Dietitian Wendy Brewer, RD LD offers a tasty way to introduce a healthy vegetable into the Thanksgiving meal, with Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes. In addition, Wendy’s suggestion for ‘Healthy Stuffing’ and Crystal’s recipe for flavorful gravy that’s lower in fat may be found on the hospital’s website, Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes Serves 4 1 head cauliflower 1 clove garlic 1 leek, white only, split in 4 pieces (may substitute 1/2 an onion) 1 tablespoon heart healthy softtub margarine Pepper (to taste) Break cauliflower into small pieces. In a saucepan, steam cauliflower, garlic and leeks (or onion) in water until completely tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. While cauliflower is hot, place in food processor and puree until the vegetables resemble mashed potatoes, making sure all of the cauliflower is pureed. Process only a small portion at a time if needed. Add a little hot water if the mixture is dry. Stir in margarine and pepper to taste. Calories: 70, Fat: 3 grams, Cholesterol: 0 mg, Total Carbs: 9 grams, Sodium: 75 mg Crystal says that stepping out for a family walk after Thanksgiving dinner and organizing family games and activities that remove the focus from food are helpful ways to prevent a return to the dinner table.

GrundySPORTS Register Grundy Center volleyball season Clark, Pierce recognized as District 4 Players of the Year ends in state quarterfinal match


Thursday, November 21, 2013

By PATTI RUST The Grundy Register CEDAR RAPIDS – The Grundy Center volleyball season came to an end last Wednesday in the Class 2A quarterfinal round of the 2013 state volleyball tournament. The Spartan loss came at the hands of familiar state tournament foe Western Christian in three sets, 15-25, 13-25, 1525. “We know Western’s style,” Grundy Center head coach Darwin Sents said. “We knew it was going to be a tough match when we came in.” The balanced Western Christian attack pounded out 50 kills and 12 ace serves against the Spartan defense, and the Wolfpack used their height and athleticism at the net to limit Grundy Center’s offensive game. “We were hoping we could get them a little more out of their system than we did,” Sents said. “The trouble was, even if they were a little out of system they hit the ball so high a lot of them were going over our block. We’re very good defensively but when their hitters can swing pretty much anywhere without us getting a touch on the ball, that leaves our back row exposed.” “They’re a very athletic, very talented, well-coached team,” he said, “They were better than us today. We didn’t have the fire power to swing back at them.” “It was definitely a tough loss,” junior Riley Sents said. “I thought they played very well and we made a lot of errors on our side of the net.” “We came out there prepared to give it our all,” junior Stephanie Faust said. “It was a little bit of deer in the head lights the first game. But by the second and third game we were having rallies and doing better as a team. Obviously Western Christian is a good team and we knew that, but all we could do was give it our all and we did.” Despite the disappointing loss, Grundy Center’s accomplishments in the tough Class 2A field warrant no shame. The Spartans ended the 2013 season with a 29-9 overall record, a conference championship, and a state tournament berth earned on an upset of fifth-ranked South Central Calhoun in the regional final. “I absolutely loved my team this year,” Riley Sents said. “I thought we accomplished much more than anyone would have thought that we could. I think we learned to play with all of our heart every match.” “The main thing I will take from this season is hard work pays off,” Faust said. “If you set goals, you can achieve them. You just have to believe in yourself and the team.” “It wasn’t an easy road for us even to get back here,” Sents said, “but these girls just kept pushing and kept winning. The further you get the harder

Spartan sophomore Alyssa Mathews sets one up in Grundy Center's first round match against Western Christian at the state volleyball tournament on Wednesday. the loss is, but it’s better to lose in Cedar Rapids than in some little gym in northeast Iowa.” Western Christian went on to win their semi-final match over Sumner-Fredericksburg, and would give eventual state champ Dike-New Hartford a good run in the final on Friday before settling for the runner-up spot. “This class (Class 2A) carries the banner for the state,” Sents said. “I don’t know who could argue that. If you want to measure against the best this is the class to do it in.” Making a trip to the state tournament in what was expected to be a rebuilding year was huge for the future of the Grundy Center volleyball program. “It’s very important for the younger kids to gain the experience,” he said. “We hope all these kids understand what a big part of the program they are. It’s a great group of girls and that goes all the way down to the end of the bench. They all have to contribute. It’s not

just the eight or nine in the (varsity) rotation, it’s the whole team.” During his post-match comments Coach Sents encouraged the younger players to use what they learned in their final match at state to focus in on areas needing improvement during the off season. Though the Spartans graduate only one starter from this year’s team, rivals DikeNew Hartford and Western Christian return a majority of their key players as well. “Most likely we'll be in the same class next year, and it’s not going to get any easier,” he said. “It's going to be tough and we need to get better to compete with that." Along with the sting of the loss, Sents acknowledged the team is saddened to have played their last match with senior Kennedy Buss. “Volleyball means a lot to me,” Buss said. “We practice a whole lot more than any other sport and we spend tons of time together. It’s a giant family and I am going to miss playing and spending time with my girls.” “We

had a great season,” she said. “Many people thought that we were going to have a rebuilding year. I think we shocked a lot of people.” Grundy Center 0, Western Christian Grundy Center 15 13 15 Western Christian 25 25 15 Kills: Grundy Center 10 (Katie Lindeman 5, Kennedy Buss 1, Stephanie Faust 1, Alyssa Mathews 1, Peyton Ralston 1, Noel Saak 1), Western Christian 50.

Wolverines rally past Western Christian for third straight 2A crown

By JOHN JENSEN The Grundy Register CEDAR RAPIDS — For about one and one-half sets, Dike-New Hartford’s Class 2A state volleyball final against Western Christian looked much like the first two sets of the Wolverines’ match against the Wolfpack a year ago. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the final outcome looked the same as last year’s match as well. Friday the top-ranked Wolverines wrapped up their third straight 2A state championship with a four-set victory over second-ranked Western. The title is the 10th in Dike and DikeNew Hartford history. “I’m kind of in shock right now,” Wolverine senior Kristi Koch said after the match. “It hasn’t really hit me yet, but it’s really exciting.” Wolverine coach Diane Harms talked about how each of the team’s titles has been different. “Every time we play in the championship match you hope that you play well, that you step up, and they did that, they found a way to be successful,” she said. On the other side of the coin was Western Christian coach Tammy Verbeek, whose team has been the titlematch victim of each of the Wolverines’ recent championships. “You’ve got to give 100 percent credit to Dike — they’re very mentally tough and they don’t get shook easy,” Verbeek said. “It’s just a fantastic volleyball club, well coached by Diane Harms, and they just ... they always found a way to claw back.” Much like a year ago, when Western Christian dominated the first two sets before D-NH rallied, the Wolfpack dominated the early part of Friday’s final. Unlike last year’s match, however, the Wolverines turned tables quickly enough to finish in four sets.

Wolverine senior Ashley Dumler shares tears of joy with teammate Kristi Koch after the Wolverines clinched the 10th state volleyball championship in school history. Also pictured is Katie Nielsen. “We weren’t passing very well to start the match, so we just talked about attacking the serve and being more aggressive in getting our feet in better position to pass and our blocking getting up earlier — those were the two things we had to adjust from the first set,” Harms said. After dropping the first set 25-20, the Wolverines fell behind in set two, 5-1, prompting Harms to call a quick timeout before things got out of hand. “I thought we needed to attack the ball and be more aggressive in all aspects of the game — after the timeout they did a much better job of that,” Harms said. “When you’re aggressive, good things happen.” The timeout stemmed the bleeding, though it took D-NH much of the set to erase their four-point deficit. An Ashley Dumler/Brooke Morgan block combination tied the set 16-16

and a Western Christian attack error gave the Wolverines their first lead since early in the first set. “We knew we had to come out and we had to charge them, and we did, we started getting some touches on the blocks and we adjusted very well,” Dumler said. As D-NH began blocking Western Christian’s hitters, the Wolfpack’s potent attack began to falter. After hitting .267 in the first set, Western Christian never hit higher than .150 in the final three sets. “Our servers did a better job as the match went on of finding some seams and gaps so that they weren’t able to use all three of their hitters — that they were more limited to one or two hitters,” Harms said. A Dumler/Sadie Eden block put D-NH up 18-16 before Western came back to tie the score. The match was

tied 20-20 when setter Rachel Koop gave the Wolverines the lead with a shoot set. Taylor Hedges served a five-point rally that put the Wolverines ahead 24-20 and Koop wrapped up the victory with her third kill of the set. The Wolverines jumped out fast in the third set, only to see Western Christian rally to take a 17-11 lead. Brooke Morgan stemmed the momentum with a kill and three straight Lizzy Blough kills put the Wolverines back in front, 21-20. Western regained the lead 22-21, only to see Koch drop in a service ace to put the Wolverines ahead for good. A Morgan spike finished the set and the Wolverines let all the way in set four to clinch the title. Dumler and Eden provided the final point on a block. “(Getting the last point) was really, really awesome,” Dumler said. “ I knew right when it was up there it was not coming over.” Harms said a couple of keys to her team’s success later in the match were its blocking and its serving. “Our servers did a better job as the match went on of finding some seams and gaps so that they weren’t able to use all three of their hitters,” she said. “They were more limited to one or two hitters.” Verbeek, who has coached eight state championship teams at Western, said this Wolfpack team is better than some of her teams that won titles. “Not to take anything away from those state champions, they were great teams, but it’s the class we fall in,” she said. “Dike-New Hartford is a giant and very, very fundamentally sound. We took them to 20 points every game, a nationally ranked team, and I don’t think there’s a lot of teams in the state that could do that. I told the girls to be proud of that; it’s just hard because they want the state championship and we’ve been denied

it three times in a row because of the challenge of Dike-New Hartford.” Morgan paced the Wolverines with 16 kills and four blocks in the match while Briana Weber had 15 kills. Rachel Koop had 42 assists and 18 digs while Lizzy Blough had three service aces. THE WOLVERINES ADVANCED TO the title match with quick victories in both the quarterfinals and semifinals. They needed just 52 minutes to down Iowa City Regina in the quarterfinals, 25-13, 25-7, 25-14, and took only 50 minutes to sweep Eddyville-BlakesburgFremont in the semis, 25-14, 25-19, 25-12. “Every year that you can make the finals is such an accomplishment for the girls,” Harms said after the match against E-B-F. “It’s just very rewarding for all the hard work that they’ve put in to make it back and play in the championship match.” The Wolverines trailed briefly in the first set against Regina before taking the lead on a Dumler kill. A Weber ace lit the fuse on a rally that would eventually take the Wolverines to a double-digit lead. D-NH scored 22 of the final 27 points in set two and led by as many as 15 points in the third set. “I think it took a little bit for us to settle in and get going, but then we found our rhythm and stuff and our serve receive picked up and therefore the level of play picked up,” Harms said. The match against EddyvilleBlakesburg-Fremont was similar, with the Wolverines needing a few points to get settled in and then dominating the final two sets. Weber paced the Wolverines with 15 kills against Regina and 17 kills against E-B-F. Koop had 55 assists between the two matches and Morgan had six blocks against Eddyville. The championship match marked the end of the volleyball careers of six Wolverine seniors. Libero Sam Meyer has been a starter since her freshman season while Sadie Eden saw significant playing time since her sophomore season. Dumler has started the past two years, Koch entered the lineup on a regular basis this year and both Lexi Schmitz and Katelyn VanWechel played reserve roles this year.
