In late action from Thursday night, the host Eagles fell 12-25, 20-25, 25-19, 25-17, 15-11 in an Indianhead Conference match at Sandy Spin Slade gymnasium.
The young Solon Springs team, with only eight players available and only one senior in Muree Ahlberg, started strong but couldn’t quite pull it off.
Ahlberg was 10-for-11 serving with two aces. Jori Gehl led the Eagles with five solo blocks and 10 kills, while Maddelyn Swanson paced the defense with six digs. Kyra Latvala led the team in sets with 50 out of 50, with 12 set assists.
“This team has passion and love for volleyball and it shows on the court,” Simenson said.
Barron 3, Northwestern 1
In other late action from Thursday, the visiting Golden Bears took advantage of the Tigers struggles on serve-receive to win the Heart O’ North Conference matchup 25-15, 25-22, 17-25, 25-13.
Brynn Erickson led Northwestern with 10 kills and 21 digs, while Allison Luoma had 10 kills and 16 digs.
Brinley Tonn paced the offense with 28 set assists and 12 digs, while Kayla Paulsen and Brynn Hessel added four kills and 10 and nine digs, respectively.
The Tigers (2-5) are at Spooner Monday.
“Brinley had to run our offense from outside of the ten-foot line, which doesn’t give our hitters a lot of good opportunities,” Northwestern coach Charlie Hessel said. “We ran down some balls defensively, had some good blocking and tried to be aggressive at the net offensively, but Barron just outplayed us.”
