The Manatee Hurricanes high school varsity volleyball team is in the midst of one of its best seasons in recent memory behind senior and middle-hitter Courtney McDonald and fellow senior middle-hitter Taylor Mealy.

Waiting in the wings to continue the Hurricanes success next year are sophomores Jenna Duvall, Mackenzie Kosfeld and Sarah Howard, all of Anna Maria Island. This trio of Islanders have helped the Manatee High School junior varsity team to a 12-5 record.

Duvall, an outside hitter, has put together a nice season with 61 kills, 18 blocks and 29 digs, while serving at a 75 percent success rate, including 15 aces.

Kosfeld pulls double duty for the Lady Canes as an outside hitter and setter. She has 24 kills, 22 digs and six blocks and has dished out 52 assists. Kosfeld, who coach Kimlyn Wilson says has an incredible jump serve, has served an 87 percent success rate and 25 aces.

Wilson raved about Howard, who plays middle-hitter and also serves as the team co-captain. “Sarah has been a force for us with her hitting and blocking. She is the player that will always hit the floor going for the ball, always giving 110 percent.” Howard has accumulated 65 kills, 44 blocks and 32 digs. She has also served at an incredible 90 percent rate, including 38 aces.

Wilson, in her second season as the JV coach, was quick to point out that it’s not all about volleyball with these girls. “They are a great bunch of girls that work hard, both in the classroom and on the court. And they’ve dedicated much of their free time to raising money to fight breast cancer for the Oct. 14 “Volley for the Cure” games at Southeast High. The girls could be found selling pink, “Volley for the Cure” T-shirts at their home volleyball and football games.”

As a team, the Manatee girls sold $2,300 worth of shirts and raised more than $400 in donations from area businesses for the cause. They also made pink posters to hang around school and produced a TV commercial that aired on Cane news.

Duvall, Kosfeld, Howard and the rest of their JV team will wrap up their season on Oct. 22 against Lakewood Ranch, a team they’ve lost to twice this season. Good luck.

 

Key Royale golf news

The men of Key Royale Club played a nine-hole, two-best-balls-of-foursome golf game on Oct. 13. The team of Russ Olson, Richard Westby, Matt Behan and Charlie Knapp carded a 4-under-par 58 to claim first place and edge second-place finishers, Gordon McKinna, Fred Meyer, Jim Finn and Earl Huntzinger by one stroke.

The ladies played a nine-hole, low-net game, while also throwing in a three-club, low-gross game on Oct. 14. First flight winner in the low-net game was Joy Phelan, who finished at even-par 32, one shot ahead of second-place finisher Judy Crane. Lois Biel was alone in third place with a 34. Lorraine Towne and Meredith Slavin tied for first place in flight two with 2-over-par 34s. Markie Ksiazek carded a 35 to claim second place, while Terry Westby came in third with a 36.

Phelan was tops in the three-club game with a 39, while Crane was again second with a 42 in flight one. Second-flight winner was Slavin with a 48, while Towne finished with 49, good for second place.

Sue Hookem had the only birdie of the day on number six, while Tootie Wagner and Penny Williams both had chipins on number three.
