Will a Month on the Road Lead to a Road Trip to Tosa? A Preview of Boys Sectional Two

Arrowhead, Fond du Lac, Germantown, Homestead, Neenah, Nicolet

Nicolet defeated Homestead in three.

  • Arrowhead The team that lost a five-set heartbreaker to Homestead in the sectional semis last season will get senior leadership from Daniel Umhoefer and Brian Barry, among others. [There are apparently two Joseph Humpals who play volleyball in Wisconsin. One Joe Humpal is a senior at Arrowhead and played club for Southwest 17s and the other is a sophomore who attended Whitnall last year and played for North Shore 15s. Let us know if this is accurate. Thanks.]
  • Fond du Lac Beyond the roster link at the left we have no information. Any help would be appreciated.
  • Germantown We don't have any information on this team. Any help would be appreciated.
  • Homestead The Highlanders lose first-team all-stater Brian Hoffman and a bevy of other 2010 grads. Junior Daniel Hagemeier will be among those stepping into more prominent roles. Seniors Anthony Bichler, Mitch Hauser, Tyler Steck, Adam Sweet and Joey Werner all played for Power Alley 17s this past club season.
  • Neenah We don't have anything on this team beyond the roster link, but we're hoping the Facebook page they started last year will be active again this season.
  • Nicolet Although the Knights lose first-team all-state setter Anatoli Berezovsky and second-teamer Rob Mayer, they return plenty of firepower, led by second-team all-state outside Matt Klingspohn. They also return senior libero Patrick Bieser, junior outside Dan Mulcahy, senior middles Christian Griggs-Williams and Steve Ellmauer, plus senior opposite Jon Fuqua. Stepping into the setter role will be junior Michael Shklover. One early hurdle will be the solid month of away games they'll have to play until their gym is ready.

Nicolet over Arrowhead in five.

Tomorrow: Boys Sectional Three
