Hometown Girl: Jussy Tuscherer, Northwestern

Bookmark and Share

In this year's state 'B' championship match between Northwestern and Arlington, nobody was better than the Wildcats' Jussy Tuscherer. The senior racked up 35 kills in a four-set win to give Northwestern the title. Folks around Mellette know that kind of performance is nothing new.

"She's broken our career kills record," Northwestern head coach Nora Groft says, "Our kills in a season record, she's shattered our ace record, she's just a phenominal athlete."

People around the state are pretty aware of it too.

"She's been first team all-state since she was a freshman," Groft says, "Which is pretty unsual for anyone in the state of South Dakota."

Of course her most valuable traits don't come in athletic ability.

"She's a pretty good leader on the court," Groft says, "She's very determined and she hates to lose."

And Tuscherer's taking all of that to the next level, next fall, when she'll suit up for college volleyball action. She'll get to keep most of her old fan base too.

"She signed to play at Northern State University in Aberdeen so as her high school coach I'm pretty excited about that." Groft says, "I'll get to see her play for four more years, she's really close to home and I know everyone in our community is excited about that."

Tuscherer's just as excited.

"I think the support from the community is going to be awesome and I'm really looking forward to that." Tuscherer says.

And the Wolves will be more than happy to see more of those 35-kill performances.
