LAKELAND'S HEBERLEIN NAMED HONORABLE MENTION IN MIDWEST REGION
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- Lakeland senior Heather Heberlein was been named Honorable Mention on the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s Midwest All-Region team for the second straight season.

“It is an honor being named and recognized as one of the top 18 players in the region,” said Heberlein. “It is just a really great feeling.”

Heberlein was also named the Player of the Year of the Lake Michigan Conference for the second straight year. This season, the Kiel native led the team in kills with 402 and had 59 blocks. The right side hitter averaged 3.53 kills per game this season, which is third best in Lakeland history. For her career, Heberlein finished with 1,067 kills, fifth best in Lakeland history.

LAKELAND FALLS TO UW-EAU CLAIRE AT NCAA VOLLEYBALL REGIONAL
OSHKOSH, Wis. -- The Lakeland volleyball team fell to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Blugolds (30-21, 30-19, 30-23) 3-0 in the first round of the NCAA Division III Regional hosted by UW-Oshkosh.

"I think emotionally we were ready to play," said Lakeland head coach Chad Schreiber. "At times we were distracted and lost our roles a little bit, and that cost us points. We can't lose points in a match like this. We lost a little focus and we got distracted, and that was the difference in all three games."

In the first game, the Muskies, who finish the season 23-16, scored the first points of the game and both teams exchanged the lead several times. With the game tied at 8-8, the Blugolds went on a six-point run, forcing Schreiber to call a timeout.

The Muskies were able to go on a five-point run coming out of the timeout to close within one at 14-13, and a Renee Steinert kill tied the match at 16-16. But the Blugolds took command to net the 30-21 win.
