VOLLEYBALL: BHS secures first win

ST. CLOUD -- The Bemidji High School volleyball team earned its first win of the season Tuesday night with a 3-1 road win over St. Cloud Tech.

“We played with a lot of confidence this game,” BHS head coach Alicia Kriens said. “For being a young group, we really took ahold of the game right at the beginning and went on a run 5-0 to start it. They really played together as a team.”

The Lumberjacks (1-2) won the first set 25-10, dropped the second 18-25 and cleaned up from there with scores of 25-20 and 25-12 to hand Kriens her first win as the team’s head coach.

“It feels pretty good,” Kriens said of the achievement. “We played really well. I’m very proud of them.”

Sophomore Emily Wade finished the contest with nine kills, 15 assists and three aces, while Mikerra Mathews racked up 21 assists, nine digs and three aces.

Jenna Anderson had a team-high 11 digs, while Taylor Wade and Emma Muller chipped in eight and seven kills, respectively.

The Jacks next host their home opener against Detroit Lakes, which is set to start at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30.
