Jaguars volleyball continues their dominance in the Central Minnesota Conference with a fast-paced sweep of Maple Lake
Maggie Gruber drops a kill down around a Maple Lake block attempt tonight.
The Jaguars volleyball team improved to 12-2 overall with a convincing win over Maple Lake tonight in a Homecoming match. The Irish entered the match with an impressive 13-3 overall record, but they wilted under the blistering attack of the Jaguars, who won by wide margins in games one and two, 25-11 and 25-16. A handful of non-starters saw action for the Jaguars in game three, which they won 25-20.
The Jaguars, now 4-0 in the Central Minnesota Conference, gear up for a very tough Willmar Cardinal Classic tournament on Saturday.

Following the Maple Lake win, the traditional bonfire was held on the elementary school baseball diamond. Shown lighting it up is Mr. Marks, who has supervised the event since it started about 6 or 7 years ago.
**A quick radio broadcasting note from Smooth Magic 107 in Glenwood...their sports broadcaster, Dave McClurg, will be broadcasting the B-B-E Homecoming football game on Friday night. Pre-game coverage begins at about 6:45pm on 107.1FM or online at http://www.kmgk1071.com/ More on that will follow later.
In a non-conference girls tennis match at Melrose, the Jaguars girls tennis team dropped a dual against the Dutchmen by a 7-0 margin. It was reported that the Jaguars were much more competitive against Melrose compared to their meeting on August 31. In many cases, the Jaguars (6-13 overall) held leads during the sets but couldn't hang on to the momentum.
Melrose Area evened their record at 9-9 overall with the win. They finished the West Central North Conference schedule with a 3-3 record. The Dutchmen will most likely come in ranked #3 in Sub-Section 5A-West for playoff seedings, behind New London-Spicer and Benson/K-M-S.
