The Red Bud volleyball team went 3-2 in the OTHS Autumn Classic in O’Fallon over the weekend. The Musketeers took first place in the silver division, fifth place overall. Seniors Brandy Reinhardt and Cassidy Melliere were named to the All-Tournament Team.

Red Bud did not start off the tournament on the right foot, losing to Highland on Friday night, 25-12, 25-17. But the Musketeers redeemed themselves winning its next game that evening against Salem, 27-25, 25-17. Reinhardt led the team with 11 kills and 24 assists, while Melliere had a team-high 11 digs against Salem and eight serving aces along with Ali Ringering who also had eight aces.

On Saturday, the Musketeers would start off with a loss again– this time against O’Fallon, 25-22, 35-17. And just like the first day of the tournament, the Musketeers would go on to redeem themselves winning two games in a row. First against Wesclin, 25-23, 25-19 and then against Triad in the fifth place match, 25-21, 25-20. Against Triad, Reinhardt once again led the Musketeers with nine kills and three blocks, while teammate Kali Hentis had nine digs and Ringering had six.

Red Bud will play its last game of the regular season on the road against Freeburg on Thursday night, with Regionals kicking off on Monday.
