Washburn defeats Wilton-Wing in regional play-in game
By Adam Thomas
The District 10 Volleyball Tournament in Wilton came and went last week with six teams vying for four spots to advance on to the Region 5 Tournament in Underwood.
As reported last week, the tournament host Wilton-Wing lost their first round game 3-0 to the TLMM Trojans. Meanwhile, Washburn handily bested Garrison-Max 3-0.
The Miners were inactive on the second day with a bye while the Cardinals entered their semi-final game against the Center-Stanton Wildcats.
Entering the tournament as the number one seed, the Wildcats were more than a handful for the Cardinals right from the start.
The Wildcats laid down a devastating first impression, completely overwhelming the Cardinals in the first set with a series of non-stop attacks that finished in a lopsided 25-5 finish.
Washburn recovered from that low afterwards but it wasn’t nearly good enough to stall the Center-Stanton engine that was running about as smoothly as you can ask for.
