The Wisconsin Heights girls volleyball team finished second at the Monroe Invite last Saturday. In front (from left) are Abby Wolfe, Jada Wood, Rylin Hodson, Destiny Brown and Kelsi Handel. In back (from left) are Ashlee Adler, Raegan Doherty, Kylee Doherty, Tayler Kraemer, Liz Strait, Riley Lynch and Sydney Duhr.

There are new players up and down the lineup.

The results, though, look awfully familiar.

Wisconsin Heights' girls' volleyball team finished second last Saturday at the highly-competitive Monroe Invitational. The Vanguards went 3-1 on the day, losing only to eventual champion Watertown Luther Prep.

Heights standout Tayler Kraemer was voted to the all-tournament team.
