THIEF RIVER FALLS -- Efficiency has been key for the Bemidji High School volleyball team.

For the second consecutive match, the Lumberjacks got out of dodge in a hurry by sweeping an opponent on its home floor. On Thursday night, Thief River Falls was the victim of a 3-0 BHS road win.

Bemidji (2-1) distanced itself in each set, winning the first 25-16. In the second set, the Jacks raced away with a 25-14 win. And in the third, BHS clinched the sweep by fending off the Prowlers (1-3) by a 25-19 margin.

A trio of Bemidji attackers finished with double-digit kills. Beth Bolte had a team-high 12, while Elizabeth Oster and Mollie Rupp pitched in with 10 apiece. Margie Anderson racked up 35 set assists, and Sammy Nistler racked up four aces. On the defensive side, Adie Potratz tallied eight digs, while three others had seven.

As a team, the Lumberjacks hit .264 for the match, as well.
