If Rettke is so essential to Wisconsin's offense, which she clearly is, why don't they play her all six rotations? That would mean she'd be in for all the important moments when they desperately need kills, as late in set 4. Is Rettke totally lacking in defensive skills?
When you're in the back row you can only attack from behind the ten foot line. I'm assuming Kelly Sheffield thinks Rettke is not yet Tori Dixon (former Gopher middle blocker) as a six rotation player. However, Rettke does (often) serve. She has a pretty wicked if inconsistent serve; but forcing her to dig while she's in the back row is a good strategy.
Rettke; 34 attempts, 22 kills, 0 errors and a .647 hitting percentage.
