Vikings coast into state volleyball semis
Natalee Rolbiecki hammered down 17 kills each and Ireland Stassen record the 1,000th career set assist as Minneota overwhelmed Badger-Greenbush-Middle River 25-15, 25-14, 25-11 in the quarterfinals of the Class A state tournament Thursday at Xcel Center in St. Paul.
Despite playing without All-State setter McKenna Yost, who cut her knee in practice on Wednesday and was held out of the match as a precaution, the No. 2-seeded Vikings made quick work of the unseeded Gators.
The Vikings advance to the semifinals at 3 p.m. Friday against Walker-Hackensack-Akeley.
