Saturday action: volleyball and tennis

Today the varsity girls' tennis and varsity volleyball teams both competed in tournaments. Also, there was JV and C-squad volleyball at the EV-W tournament.

Updates to follow later tonight after I get all the results.

Here's an update on volleyball:
The B-B-E Jaguars volleyball team went 3-1 in the Crosby-Ironton tournament today. They won two pool play matches to earn a spot in the championship round. The first win was over Crosby-Ironton 25-14, 25-13. They swept Little Falls 25-17, 25-13. In the semifinals, the Jaguars lost in a 2-1 match to Ada-Borup West. Game scores were 21-25, 25-22, 11-15.

In the third-place match, the Jaguars won 25-18, 25-12 over Hermantown. B-B-E takes a 9-6 record into next week's action. Their next match is a border battle on Monday (Sept. 20) at Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg.

I hope you were able to enjoy outdoor time on this beautiful fall day!
