Troopers test Trojans

With the dawning of the new week, the District 10 Tournament began its three-day run at the Underwood High School gym.
The top two seeds -- Underwood and Wilton-Wing – both watched the first round from the bleachers with byes for the first day while the other four teams kicked off the action Monday night.
The opening match of the tournament was between the fifth seeded Washburn Cardinals and the fourth seeded Center-Stanton Wildcats. On the end, the Miners prevailed 3-0. Scores were 25-20, 25-15, 25-13.
The other match pitted the third seed Turtle Lake-Mercer-McClusky Trojans against the sixth seeded Garrison-Max Troopers.
Anyone who was being honest didn’t expect much from this game, but the Troopers surprised people with some gutsy play and made the Trojans work a lot harder than they most likely expected, to come out of the tournament opener with a win.
