This week we finally get to see some of our favorite teams take the court after weeks of uncertainty.  Here is a preview of the top matches to watch online in the Minnesota River Conference.

Thursday, October 8th: 

  • Belle Plaine vs Southwest Christian - The top teams in the conference kick-off the season with what is sure to be an intense match-up.  Belle Plaine returns  players from their squad that took 3rd last year at the state tournament.  It has to be hard playing, knowing they won’t get a chance to experience that again this year, but Southwest Christian will still prove to be stiff competition.  Belle Plaine’s top returners are Leah Lenz (jr.), Sydney Meyer Sydney Meyer 5'2" | DS/L Belle Plaine | 2022 State MN (jr.) and Sara Lenz (sr.)  They lots of a lot of their height and big hitters, but their defense is always tough.   Hoping to outshine them will be a fairly young SC team.  They graduated four seniors and have a handful of sophomores and junior athletes.  They include outside Callie Coughlin Callie Coughlin 5'7" | DS/L Southwest Christian | 2022 State MN , defensive specialist- Sonja Brastad , and setter- Hailey Miedema.  It is a new season and anything is possible.
