Vikings sweep Princeton
The fourth-seeded North Branch volleyball team moved on to the semifinals with a 3-0 win over the fifth-seeded Princeton Tigers on Friday, October 29.
They hammered the Tigers 25-13, 25-23 and 25-18 to move on and end Princeton’s season.
The win sets up a rematch with Grand Rapids, who is the top seed and had a bye in the first round.
The two squads played at the beginning of the season in late August, and North Branch swept the Thunderhawks, but all three games were close, 25-21, 27-25 and 25-23.
North Branch will need to be on top of their game to beat the Hawks again. The teams played on Wednesday, November 3 after the Press went to print. If the Vikes win, they’ll play Saturday, November 6 at Cloquet to go to state.
