Velva girls are runners up
The Velva girls put up a battle, but couldn’t get by number one seed Bottineau in the District 11 volleyball championship on Monday night. The Stars beat the Aggies 25-9, 25-22 and 25-15.
The Aggies (#3) made their way to the title game with a white-knuckle victory over Westhope-Newburg (#2) last Friday night, going a full five matches to beat the Eagles, 25-27, 25-20, 25-22, 21-25 and 15-12.
“It was a hard fought game between two evenly matched teams,” said Velva Head Coach Diana Thingstad. “We lost to W-N in the regular season, but the girls played hard to finish the match and qualify for the district championship.”
