There were some good battles on the courts when the Thunder tennis girls traveled to Little Falls last Monday. The Thunder were able to pick up three wins on the day, but had two close matches end in defeat as they fell 4-3 to the Flyers. Senior Abby Ecker grabbed a straight set win at first...
Senior outside hitter Gabby Becker went for an attack during the Thunder’s match against Osakis last Tuesday.
Osakis continued its winning streak against LPGE when it swept the Thunder in a home match last Tuesday night. The Thunder are now on a 10-game skid against the Silverstreaks, who always seem to put together good volleyball year in and year out. The last win for LPGE came back on Oct. 11, 2011....

B/EV’s senior libero Megan Carry went down for a dig during last Thursday’s game.
It was an exciting week of volleyball for the Tiger girls. Not only because they picked up two Prairie Conference wins, but also because they did it in nail biting fashion.

Myron Ripplinger (1) picked up a block from Cole Pfeiffer (60) to allow him enough time to attempt a pass during last Friday’s game.

USA’s ability to both effectively run and pass the ball...
