The only team to defeat BHS was Wadena-Deer Creek which was able to gain revenge for the two losses the Jacks handed the Wolverines during the previous week. The teams met during last weekend's St. Michael-Albertville tournament and they staged a rematch Thursday in Bemidji. Both times the Jacks collected the victory.

Wadena-DC went on to win Saturday's tournament, stopping North St. Paul in the title match.

"It's tough beating a good team three times in a row, much less in the same week," said Bemidji coach Theresa Colligan. "This was a very good tournament with quality teams and even competition. Most of the tournament matches went to three games."

BHS opened with a 25-14, 17-25, 15-10 win over Elk River. Jenna Sagedahl had 18 assists and seven digs, Allie Heifort 11 kills and Jess Yost eight kills and six digs.

The Lumberjacks then defeated Alexandria 25-21, 25-20 as Sagedahl had 22 assists, Yost contributed three blocks, nine digs and nine kills, Kellie Morehouse six kills and Hanna Olson two aces.

Wadena-DC handed the Jacks a 25-18, 25-21 loss to finish pool play. Sagedahl dished 24 assists, Yost had 13 kills and Sagedahl, Yost and Olson six digs.

In the third-place match BHS outlasted Brainerd 25-17, 24-26, 15-12. Sagedahl contributed 25 assists, Yost had 14 kills and 14 digs, Heifort 13 kills and Olson nine digs.

Bemidji, 18-8, returns to action Monday at Dilworth-GF. The Jacks will end their regular season Tuesday at home against Lake of the Woods.
