10th win for volleyball team

The No. 8-ranked B-B-E Jaguars volleyball team improved to 10-6 overall on the season with a 3-0 win at Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg (1-8) tonight. Game scores were 25-21, 25-16, 25-13. The Jaguars hit 26.2 percent as a team and served at an 89.2 percent clip.

The Fighting Saints are the defending Camden North Conference champions last season. After suffering heavy graduation losses, this year they remain winless (0-4) in the brutally tough Camden Conference league; their lone win was by a 2-0 margin in a weekend tournament over Long Prairie-Grey Eagle.

B-B-E has two days of practice ahead of them before they travel to Pine River-Backus high school on Thursday this week for a non-conference match with the Tigers. It will be a rematch of the 2018 Section 5A championship, which the Jaguars won by a 3-1 margin to end a seven-year state tournament drought.

**Update: the B-B-E Jaguars JV football team has improved to 3-0! They defeated Benson tonight by an unofficial score of 14-0 in Belgrade. I don't have that score confirmed, but I have confirmed that the Jaguars won by shut out. This means that through three games, the JV Jaguars have yet to be scored on! They beat K-M-S 22-0 in the season opener and then beat Benson last week by a 12-0 score.

Tomorrow there are no varsity events on the schedule.

CORRECTION to the Friday, September 17 blog post:
The Jaguars host Upsala/Swanville Area this week on September 24 for Week Four. The Homecoming game for Week Five on October 1 includes Long Prairie-Grey Eagle. The USA Patriots are 2-1 overall but have a powerful offense that's averaged 42 points a game through three games. Their lone loss was in Week 2 to No. 5-ranked BOLD by a 49-38 score.
