These team proved they have what it takes to outlast their competitors.  When a match goes to five sets, it takes a lot more to come out on top.  It tests you physically and emotionally.  The constant change in momentum is hard for some to overcome; but not these teams or their athletes.  

Melrose over Morris Area/Chokio Alberta (25-21,17-25, 25-16, 18-25,15-13)  Thanks to the live streaming this year, we can be at nearly every match.  Word spread quickly when Melrose beat Morris Area in five.  

Caledonia over Lewiston Altura (25-22, 20-25, 25-10, 16-25, 15-7) Caledonia looked confident despite losing the second set.  They are rebuilding their team and used a few more subs than normal.  Lewiston Altura looked strong at the net, but struggled on defense and couldn’t overcome big runs.

  • Dana Augedahl (Cal.) 11 kills, 11 digs

 

Randolph over Southland (25-18, 22-25, 17-25, 25-15, 15-11) This five set thriller looked to be done in four sets as Southland dropped the first set, but won the next two.  Then Randolph was able to eliminate unforced errors and took over.  Match MVP was Baily Johnson of Southland.
