North Branch falters in opener against Cougars
The North Branch volleyball team kicked off their season with a tough draw against the Class AAAA Centennial Cougars on Saturday, August 27.
The Cougs went 16-11 last season and made it to the semifinals of the Section 7AAAA championship, so it wasn’t going to be an easy opener for NB
The Vikings fell 3-0 in the match, losing 25-12, 25-17 and 25-16. On offense, they were led by Leah Kent and Rylee Ramberg, but it just wasn’t enough to wrangle the Cougars.
After the tough first match, North Branch will start to see familiar foes quickly. They took on section foe Grand Rapids on Tuesday, August 30 and then will have a break while school starts until they host Cloquet on Tuesday, September 6. They’ll open their Mississippi 8 Conference slate with a match up against St. Francis on Thursday, September 8 at 7 p.m.
