Chinook's Delaney Kellam, middle, tries to hit through the Chester-Joplin-Inverness block during a District 7C match last Tuesday in Chester.

Last week was a quiet one on the Hi-Line volleyball front. This coming week, however, won’t be.

That’s because this week marks the final week of the regular season for Class C and B volleyball teams, and then its on to district tournaments.

First, though, there were some key matches last week, though it was a short schedule due to MEA.

Last Tuesday saw Fort Benton defeat Geraldine-Highwood in a sweep by scores of 25-17, 25-20 and 26-24. The Longhorns remained unbeaten in the District 7C, as Abby Clark and Aspen Giese each had six kills in the win.

The Longhorns then took on Manhatten Christian Wednesday in a non-conference affair. It was a matchup of two of the top teams in the state, but it was Manhatten Christian which came out on top by scores of 19-25, 25-12, 25-10 and 25-22. Abby Clark led the way for Fort Benton with 12 kills and three blocks.

Last week also saw Chinook defeat CJI, while several other matches were postponed or canceled due to COVID-19.

This week marks the final week of the regular season in the 7C. Fort Benton is in first placed, followed by Chinook and North Star. The 7C tournament will be played in Fort Benton and Big Sandy Oct. 23-24. District and divisional tournaments are being played in split venues as part of MHSA coronavirus guidelines.
