WORTHINGTON — Last week, some of the members of The Eldas played their last volleyball league match at the Worthington Area YMCA. It was a playoff match, and they didn't advance, but the women left the court with a feeling of accomplishment.
WORTHINGTON — The 2012 All-Red Rock Conference volleyball team has recently been decided by league coaches.
Southwest Christian and Westbrook-Walnut Grove were represented the most with four all-conference players apiece. The Eagles added two honorable mention players, while the Chargers had one.
The Red Rock Conference regular season championship went to Southwest Christian, which compiled a 10-0 mark. The rest of the standings included Westbrook-Walnut Grove (9-1), Southwestern United (8-2), Murray County Central (7-3), Red Rock Central (6-4), Mountain Lake Area (5-5), Hills-Beaver Creek (3-7), Adrian (2-8), Edgerton (2-8), Fulda (2-8) and Ellsworth (1-9).
MARSHALL — Building large leads in each of the first two games and then pulling away late to win the third set Saturday night, North champion and top-seeded Marshall Tigers swept South champion and top-seeded Jackson County Central Huskies in the Section 3AA high school volleyball tournament championship match at the R/A Facility on the campus of Southwest Minnesota State University.
WORTHINGTON — Tara Svalland has decided to continue her academic and athletic careers next fall at Briar Cliff University.
Svalland, a senior right-side hitter from Worthington, helped the Trojans complete a 22-11 volleyball campaign in 2012. On Friday in the WHS Media Center, she signed a letter of intent to attend the Sioux City, Iowa-based Briar Cliff.
“I really liked the girls on (Briar Cliff’s) volleyball team and the school seemed to really fit well for me,” Svalland said. “The teachers seemed to really give me a lot of help and attention. I liked that a lot.”
A three-year letterwinner, Svalland was an All-Southwest Conference honorable mention pick in 2011. She posted 142 kills and 70 blocks as a junior and followed that with 154 kills and 49 blocks as senior.
Svalland recorded 327 kills and 133 blocks during her prep career.
The 2012 All-Southwest Conference selections will be made later this season.
