Local volleyball teams shine bright in openers

 

September 3, 2013



The 2013 high school volleyball season got started Friday night. But things really got cooking Saturday, mostly with preseason tournaments involving many area teams.

The Malta M-Ettes played host to the Malta Invitational Saturday where Chinook, Rocky Boy and Harlem were in attendance. In the bracket portion of the tournament, Harlem was ousted by Tri-Cities, while Rocky Boy was eliminated by Saco-Hinsdale. However, after a strong showing in pool play, the Sugarbeeters beat Circle 25-20 and 25-17 to advanced to the semifinals. There, the Beeters fell to Winnett-Grass Range by scores of 25-18 and 21-25, but it was a strong showing on opening weekend for Chinook.

The Chester/J-I Hawks were in Sunburst for a tournament Saturday, and it was a tough day for the Hawks, who went 0-2 in pool play and were eliminated by Valier by scores of 25-15 and 25-16. The Hawks did a get a win over Dutton-Brady, by scores of 21-25 and 25-15.

Meanwhile, in Belt, the North Star Knights and Big Sandy Pioneers, perhaps the top two teams in the 6C East, were in action in the Belt Showcase. In pool play, the Pioneers beat Belt, Harlowtown and Power, going 3-1 overall. North Star defeated Reedpoint-Rapelje and Centerville on its way to a 2-2 record in pool play.

In the tournament, the Knights defeated Harlowtown and the Pioneers beat Cascade.

Friday, North Star beat Dutton-Brady by scores of 25-22, 25-15, 26-28 and 25-19.
