EAGLE RIVER - Rhinelander's Hope Wissbroecker started her senior season with a goal to lead the conference in several categories. But so far, she's shocking the GNC with an insane number of kills.
"When we need a go-to point, we go to her," said head coach Kathy Wawrzynowicz.
She is a four-year varsity starter for the Hodags and she's having an unbelievable season.
"School stats do mean a lot to me. I check them after every game when they're updated and I'm really wanting to lead in kills," said Wissbroecker.
She's not just leading in kills, she's dominating. Wissbroecker has 221 kills so far this season, which is over 100 more than second place Jaqueline Smith from Northland Pines.
Her skills are also helping the Hodags have a great season as a team.
"We beat Antigo, we beat [Northland] Pines, and we beat Tomahawk. We haven't done that since 2012 since my sister was a senior," said Wissbroecker.
Her sister Taylor also played for Wawrzynowicz when Hope was still in middle school.
"When Taylor was playing, Hope was in the gym with us constantly," said Wawrzynowicz.
Hope has always looked up to Taylor and has tried to play like her as well.
That includes being a great senior leader and helping Rhinelander be undefeated on their home court.
Regardless of the final team record, Hope will never forget her senior season.
"Obviously, she's one of the best players, if not the best player in the conference, hands-down," said Wawrzynowicz.
Wissbroecker says she wants to play college volleyball and has some coaches contacting her, but hasn't made an official decision quite yet.
