Volleyball team continues ‘win’ streak

Volleyball team continues 'win' streak The Tanager Volleyball team found the weather affecting their season on Jan. 13 as a heavy snow storm curtailed the Bon Homme Invitational, sending the 10 teams home early with only a "skeleton" competition being completed using special rules (two games per match � win, lose, or tie).

Vermillion was paired against Elk Point/Jefferson, Lennox and Bon Homme for their three matches with two games each.

Match #1 with Elk Point/Jefferson resulted in each team winning a game, so it is recorded as a tie on the teams' records.

Leaders for the Tanagers were: Elly Kjose � 22 assists, one kill, one ace, and six digs; Ashley Bjorkman � 11 kills, one block, one ace and three digs; Leslie Larson � three blocks, six kills, two aces and three digs; Carey Engstrom �

nine digs, four kills, and two blocks; Jaclyn Powell � three assists, four kills and four digs; and Tessa Tuetken � four digs.

Match #2 with Lennox also ended in a tie as each team won a game. Defensive blocks and digs were shared almost equally by the members of the Tanager team.

Meggie Donnelly scored the most assists with three; Powell had three ace serves and two kills. Karen Sorensen had two aces. Bjorkman and Larson led the offense with six kills each and Larson had six digs to lead that stat.

Match #3 with Bon Homme gave the Tanagers a win as they scored 15-6 and 15-5.

Larson, with 11 service points, six aces, four digs, three kills and three solo blocks, was the leader of the pack. Sorensen had seven service points with two aces, two blocks and one kill. She also had one dig. Bjorkman had five kills and five service points.
