Volleyball is a sport where there are great swings in momentum within a match.

Volleyball is a sport where there are great swings in momentum within a match.

The Montevideo volleyball team saw the pendulum swing both ways the past week, from the high of an upset win over conference leader BOLD to the disappointment of finishing last in their own tournament and coming up short in a conference match against Minne­waska Area.

The Thunder Hawks have just one match in the upcoming week — at Sauk Centre Tuesday.

Montevideo 3, BOLD 2
Rallying from a two sets to one deficit, the Monte­video volleyball team scored one of its most impressive regular season wins in several years by outlasting BOLD here last Thursday.

BOLD was considered one of the teams favored to win the West Central Conference this season.

The Warriors appeared to be in control of the match after taking the third set 25-10, but the Thunder Hawks rallied to take the fourth set 25-23.

A kill by Kelsey Olson gave the Thunder Hawks match point in the fifth set.

Ashley Hoehne led a bal­anced Montevideo at­tack with 11 kills.
