ORCS lose to Dickinson Trinity in three setter
On Friday, Our Redeemer’s Christian School suffered its second defeat in as many days at the Class B State Tournament, falling in three sets to Dickinson Trinity (25-27, 24-26, 8-25) at the Fargodome.
For the game, Amaya Willer and Abbey Kubas each registered 15 kills for Dickinson Trinity while Olivia Nelson notched a team high nine kills for Our Redeemer’s. Eden Olson enjoyed a productive afternoon for the Knights as she ended the contest with four kills, 18 assists and 12 digs. After the game, Our Redeemer’s head volleyball coach Kara Nunziato mentioned Olson and Nelson as being key performers for the Knights in the loss. “Eden played phenomenally, she was a true leader on the floor,” Nunziato told the Minot Daily News via email. “Olivia Nelson also had one of her best matches as she lead us in kills, and was a tough assignment that forced a lot of errors out of Dickinson Trinity. The girls fought hard for three tough sets, and there were a lot of long and impressive rallies throughout the match. Even though we fell short today, we have a lot to be proud of.”
Our Redeemer’s will wrap up the state tournament in the seventh place bracket as they are scheduled to face Kenmare on Saturday at 10 a.m. Meanwhile, Dickinson Trinity will move into the fifth place bracket to take on Flasher at 1 p.m. that same day. In other Class B tournament news, Thompson will take on Northern Cass in the third-place ballgame at 4 p.m., and Langdon Area-Edmore-Munich will battle Linton/HMB for the state championship at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
