Playoff Outlook

Crosby-Ironton volleyball –

S#6 seed in section 8-2A , will travel to S#2 seed Perham on Thursday 10/26 @7:00 PM.

                “Tied for second in the Mid-State Conference, ended the season 16-10 after starting 10-1. We are led by a strong core of experienced players with senior Jami Nelson and junior Shyanne Loiland hitting out of the middle and both doing the setting out of the back. Along with senior Kylie Monson and junior Michaela Stangel at outside we've got a strong 4 player attack with Loiland and Monson as our go to hitters.  We are a pretty hot and cold team as our record from start to finish can indicate. Our overly aggressive approach to serving and attacking can hurt and help us and will make us a team that can surprise people in the playoffs.  We've got a very strong sub-section and we've competed tough with all of the teams and look forward to Thursday. Of course we play the one team we haven't played yet this season.” Head coach Brad Hollenhorst

Pillager volleyball –

Will travel to Walker on Thursday 10/26 @ 7:00 PM.

“The Pillager volleyball team has improved greatly from game one of the season.  We struggled with our defense and serve receive at the start of the season and now that's one of our stronger skills.  We have had to have a lot of girls step up losing three seniors and Kassie Garner (sophomore) who tore her ACL before the season started, all of which were starters last year and played all around.  We are a young team with heavy on sophomores who have not had varsity experience before this year.  I am proud of how they have done and the future looks bright.  Maggie Schmit, my starting sophomore setter, has stepped up into the leadership role nicely and plays like a varsity veteran.  We are still working on our offensive game.  We are often out sized by our opponents, but still trying our best to be as aggressive as we can at the net.  We lack consistency sometimes so that's a focus we are trying to have coming into playoffs and a focus we will have going into next season.” Head coach Jessica Davoli
