Senior spikers settle for silver

The Muskie girls’ volleyball program saw mixed results at the NorWOSSA championships yesterday in Dryden.
The senior squad played some of their best volleyball of the season en route to the silver medal. But the juniors stumbled against a team they’d not lost to all season and were eliminated in the semi-finals.
The black-and-gold’s senior squad, who managed only a 1-7 record during the regular season, put on a volleyball clinic in their semi-final match-up against second-place Kenora (3-5)—dispatching the Broncos in straight sets (25-19, 25-16, and 25-23).
But the Muskies could not knock the host Eagles (8-0) from their perch atop the standings in the final.
Despite playing well, the seniors fell 25-16, 25-21, and 25-14 and were forced to settle for the NorWOSSA silver medal.
But while the Muskie seniors played well, the juniors certainly did not.
Despite finishing in second place during the regular season with a 4-4 mark, the juniors were upset by the winless Broncos (0-8) in the semi-finals.
The juniors struggled with their serving and their first pass en route to a five-set loss (27-25, 23-25, 25-19, 23-25, and 13-15).
Dryden then swept the Broncos in straight sets in the final to capture the junior girls’ crown.
