Sturgis defenders Sarah Janz (5) and Ashlyn Simons (4) attempt to block a spike from Rapid City Central’s Erin Trohkimoinen during their match in Sturgis Tuesday. Central won 3-1.

Rapid City Central's Sam Seljeskog was a one-woman wrecking crew against the Sturgis Scoopers Tuesday night.

The senior outside hitter racked up 29 kills as the Cobblers took the match 3-1 over Sturgis.

The two teams played head-to-head during the first two sets.

The Cobblers took the first set 25-19, but the Scoopers rebounded for a 25-23 win in the second set.

Central dominated the third and fourth sets winning 25-7 and 25-13.

"We got Sam the ball a lot tonight because there really wasn't a good block across from her so we just kept feeding her the ball," Central coach Jeanne Deming said. "She really played well tonight. I was really proud of her."

Deming gave kudos to the Cobbler's setter Bailey Johnson for setting up Seljeskog on many occasions.

"Bailey had a great game tonight too. Her sets were right on," Deming said.

The Cobblers' Abbie Freeman paced her squad with five aces and 26 digs.

"Abbie Freeman in the back row had a ton of digs tonight," Deming said.

Overall, Deming said the Cobblers came together as a team Tuesday night after losing the second set and then coming back to win the match.

Central (7-14) will play host to Huron on Friday, while the Scoopers (8-12) play Spearfish at home next Tuesday.
