The Winfield- Mt. Union volleyball team is in district semi final action tonight when they take on North Mahaska.

The Wolves had to buckle down and steal a win away from Sigourney last week, after going down 2-0 in the first two sets and then winning 27-25 in the fourth set, the Wolves advanced.

Erica Robinson is still the leading killer with 258 on the season, while Brooke Jennings sets her up with 254 assists, and Shelby Therme keeps the ball off the ground with 291 digs.

North Mahaska has swept their way through the playoffs, with Twin Cedars being their last 3-0 victim. They are led in kills by Carly Ehret with 125, but there are four girls, including Ehret who have 99 or more kills. Caprice Dye leads in assists with 271 and Nicole Brand has 310 digs.

WMU head coach Dave Pieart said his team is looking at this game, and this game only because it is the only one that matters as of right now.

“That’s part of what we do in practice, we’re not talking about the next round, we’re not talking about what may happen after tonight, we focus on one play at a time,” Pieart said. “I’ve got a lot of players returning from last year so they’ve been through this process before, where as last year we got very close and again last year we were very insistent on going through this one game at a time, that looking ahead gets dangerous, gets very very dangerous, so we’re trying really hard not to.”

WMU and North Mahaska play tonight at Sigourney with first serve at 7 P.M.
