FIELD TWP - The Grizzlies opened the girls volleyball season on a roll, topping International Falls 3-1 on Tuesday after defeating Mt. Iron-Buhl on Monday in straight sets.

“The way the girls played and came together as a team was great to see,” coach Gabby Sundquist said following this week’s action. “They played with intensity, they played smart and did a great job all around. There is still so much to work on going forward but it’s a great start to the season.”

Up against the Broncos on Tuesday, the Grizzlies took the first two games 25-16 and 25-8, before dropping the third 23-25. They got back on track in game five, routing I-Falls 25-11. Morgan Burnett led the team on Tuesday with 42 set assists and two aces. Regan Ratai had 16 kills with nine good passes. Coley Olson had 20 kills, and Hanna Sandberg had two aces and seven passes.

Stats for Monday’s game were unavailable at press time. The Grizzlies dominated throughout, winning 25-14, 25-16, and 25-20.

The Grizzlies next travel to Bigfork on Tuesday to take on the Huskies. Game time is 7 p.m.
