The 2016 fall season will usher in a new era for Tiger volleyball after the program graduated a large core of players from recent years. The team brings back just a pair of players -- Quinn Kircher and Kenzi Riedel -- from last season’s lineup, so the team will be looking to work in several new...

The annual club tournament for men and women members was held this past Saturday and Sunday at the Long Prairie Country Club.

An odd play at second base ended up allowing the go ahead run to score for Dent. Dent’s Tyler Doll attempted to steal second, but did not attempt to slide.

The Predators made an argument it was runner interference, but the call stood.
The 2016 Predators will be left with a sour taste until they pick up the bats next spring, after being bounced from the Region 16C tournament in a pair of one-run losses last weekend. The latest loss will hurt the most, as a controversial play in the eighth inning aided Dent in a 2-1 win over Long...
