On the evening of September 11, senior Shantel Herner made some serious noise on the volleyball court.

Playing the team from Standing Rock school at home, Herner punched up the first serve and didn’t stop from there. Her teammates could have rested for the game, as Herner scored the first 25 points and took over the first game, a victory by the Wildfire.

“She had an awesome game,” said Wildfire head coach Aryn Dangerud.

The senior starting Libero continued her hot streak on to the next game, scoring the first six points of the second game.

“Shantel served 25 in a row, and in the second game she served six in a row,” Dangerud said. “She had a pretty awesome game.”

The head coach wasn’t sure if that was good enough for a school record, but she knows that the feat isn’t something that happens regularly.

“She just did good, 25 in a row, that’s pretty unheard of,” Dangerud said.

Overall, Herner had 26 aces out of 27 chances throughout the game.

Dangerud also liked how the rest of her squad played.

“They just played as a team, and it was a good win for us,” Dangerud said. “It was a good night, everything seemed to go right for us.”

The Wildfire defeated the Warriors from Standing Rock three games to none.
