Lakeland Union High School saw its volleyball season come to an end on Tuesday night to a familiar opponent.

The Thunderbirds traveled to Antigo for a WIAA Division 3 Quarterfinal match against Great Northern Conference rival Antigo, in what would be the third meeting of the season between the two teams.

The Red Robins won the previous two in straight sets and that was once again the outcome as Lakeland fell, 25-16, 25-11, 25-20.

"The difference was that they had a good run on us in the first two sets which made it a tough hole to climb out of," LUHS head coach Carley Siegel said. "Volleyball is about a game of runs. Rarely do you see a team score 25 straight points, so when a team does go on a run you have to counter with a run of your own. We had a tough time getting our team rolling tonight."

Antigo was able to win the first two sets handily, and it looked like the third set may end in the same fashion, but Lakeland was able to step in and put up a stiff fight.

The T-Birds were able to give Antigo all it could handle in the final set, but they just fell short.

"Lakeland doesn't mail it in," Siegel said. "If some attacks would have hit the floor and we could have minimized some hitting errors it would have changed the outcome, but that's volleyball. Antigo played a good match tonight. The Lakeland T-Birds may not have moved on in the tournament but I am so happy these girls came together with some many new faces this year playing different positions. Most of these girls played different positions all year due to injuries, illness, other circumstances. For changing things up so much these girls did awesome."

While it may not seem like a huge jump, Lakeland was vastly improved in Siegel's second season at the helm.

There were some bumpy spots along the way, but T-Birds won four more matches overall, and also avoided going winless in its conference schedule.

"As a coach it's hard to let go of your seniors," Siegel said. "This year my seniors really stepped it up and helped me bring the girls as far as we did. The girls grew leaps and bounds this season, anyone can see that. The leadership from this year will truly be missed."

Lakeland ends its season 9-27-2.
