Wins pile up for North Woods

BIGFORK – The North Woods girls extended their dominance in girls volleyball to a second week on Tuesday, defeating Bigfork in three sets.

Even with the win, Assistant Coach Dee Ann Sandberg said the team didn’t play to their potential, especially against a weaker team. “I think we were playing down to our competition,” she said. Bigfork lost a lot of players last year.”

According to Sandberg, the lack of communications led to poor passing by the Grizzlies, hampering the ability of their setters to position the ball for kill shots.

“They were picking up a lot of our hits off the ground.  We need to work on talking on the floor as a team.”

Regan Ratai led the team with 12 kills followed by Coley Olson with 11.

Morgan Burnett had 24 set assists.

Burnett and Hanna Sandberg had two ace serves apiece.

The team was set to play a second road game this week against Mesabi East on Thursday night. Both teams went into the game with three straight wins, though Mesabi is 3-1 after losing their season opener.
