Wolves resume volleyball season in 2024 looking to remain undefeated

Updated: Jan 9


The North Star Wolves senior girls volleyball team ended the 2023 portion of their schedule undefeated and look to continue that in 2024.


The Wolves finished the first part of the season with a 4-0 record, winning all 12 sets played in the process. That included a 25-15, 25-16 and 25-17 victory over Riverside in Amherstburg Dec. 19.


“I think it’s a good way to go into the Christmas break,” said Lillian Mereszak. 

Mereszak said they got off to a bit of a slow start versus Riverside but “we picked it up when we needed to.”


The team wants to work on its timing in relation to their hitting, she indicated, but overall they are feeling good about how they are performing on the volleyball court. The Wolves played a lot of volleyball heading into the Christmas break and Mereszak said it was good to get some time off to rest and recover from any nagging injuries.


“We’re on the right track for success,” she believed.

North Star head coach Jeff Miller was happy with the win over Riverside.

“We were pretty clean especially in the first set,” he said.


The Wolves played good defense and were solid in transition, he added. 

The Stingers are a good team, he added, but North Star looked good against them.


“It’s a good way for us to end off this part of our schedule,” he said. 

Players are playing different positions due to injury, Miller added, noting Lily Mulder is getting used to setting and improving at it. The offense will get better as she progresses in that new role, he predicted.


The junior team fell to 0-4 on the season, as they also hosted Riverside Dec. 19. They lost two of three sets, falling 13-25, 15-25 and 25-23.


The two teams return to the court Jan. 9 at St. Anne, juniors at 4 p.m. and seniors at 5:20 p.m. They return to North Star Jan. 11 for home games with the seniors at 4 p.m. and juniors at 5:20 p.m.
