GLENWOOD – Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta won their fourth straight sub-section title with an impressive performance on Thursday from Minnewaska Area High School, sweeping top-seeded Paynesville 25-17, 25-16, 25-13 in the 3AA-North championship.
The Tigers played mistake free volleyball all night, leaving no doubt who the better team was with superb passing, attacking, and defense.
Bailey Marty recorded a double-double with 11 kills and 11 digs, Riley Decker posted a game-high 26 digs, LaRae Kramm had 14 assists and Liz Dietz added 11.
The Tigers have won nine straight and never dropped a set in three sub-section postseason matches, improving to 19-7 on the year.
They will face the south sub-section champion Marshall Tigers for the section title on Saturday night at Southwest MN State in Marshall. It’s a rematch of last year’s five-set thriller for the section crown that went to Marshall.
Game time is 7:30 and can be heard on 1230/107.7 KMRS.
